Yeah, happy to get together for that--let me know if you'd like to drive it.

This is where I got the kit; they had it on sale for 2700, but looks like it's gone back up to 2995.

This is why I need to get a shitty welder for Doom. No better broken bolt extractor.

Tried dialing the struts to 11 clicks (I think we had them on 7?), and thatís a lot more livable on the street.

Funny you mention that. Just yesterday I was disassembling an alternator to build as a backup for the race car and two of the (5mm) bolts snapped off. It look longer to wheel the welder out and plug it in than it did to extract the bolts.
