I had an outing in Michigan canceled mid though because of snow a few years ago. It was an interesting couple of laps though!

I canít identify the rates on the springs themselves, but as of 2013 it looks like BC was building kits with 5k/8k f/r spring sets. This kit was purchased in 2015, so Iím assuming itís the same.

Tomorrow oil change, air filter charge, in and out detailing, check rear differential.
Can't wait to get it back on the road.

Congrats! Mine is currently in kid-gloves mode awaiting replacement parts and the modifications and custom parts to support those parts... Fingers crossed it's road worthy before September.

I already have upgraded front springs, so adding a bar will have to wait until Iím convinced itís necessary. I understand if the springs are stock, using a front bar to decrease front roll makes some sense.

Again though, Iím averse to throwing a bunch of upgrades at my setup all at once. I prefer a patient approach. After all, Iím not racing anyone, and itís still a DD.

Considering upgrading mine front to 27mm , Progress sway bar

If I ever start doing time trials, where the stopwatch tells all, then the upgrades will move along more rapidly. Iíve done the racing thing, and right now I like track . [emoji3508]

And from one road warrior to another, I salute you! Any guy fabbing his own brake ducts and unafraid to rest his tire against his door knows what's really important. LOLLLLOLOLOL

Other than adding EBC Yellows in the rear, Iím not really changing anything else set-up wise since my trip to Road Atlanta, so hopefully it will make a noticeable difference.
I switched to 22mm as well.
What sway bar are you running in the front? Also, are you on stock suspension?

docmarc1 So, going ahead the the Canament front bumper. Rather then cut out the fiberglass for the DRL lights I am planning on putting an led light bar behind the front grill. Anyone have one they recommend?
