      after a little trouble getting a super stripped bolt off, i finally have my alpherds on. the only thing i dont like is how my steering wheel gets a little wobbly at 60mph. let me know what you all think







      im well aware of the 1 foot wheel gap im looking at springs now.

      As for your wobble, how's your tie rod ends? Or your alignment?

      i had my front end checked about a month and a half ago. i have to do my front brakes so i'll have them check the wheels / alignment. as for now i dont mind driving extra slow so people can get a good look

      start with making sure the tires are balanced right.

      tires make a huge difference , if they are messed the whole drive is $hit

      ya i forgot about those. diff hub rings !

      ya st coils are pretty decent for the price, just remember to keep out the rear adjusters and take all that crap in there out too. just the spring by it self
