Pffft... thank you for giving you a small fraction of all the money they took from you back?

It's better than them asking for more money ($1300) like they did last year.

So the springs and rear sway bar are on as of yesterday late. No pics yet and someone's got the digicam out here at work.

So far though the ride quality feels pretty good, no worse than stock. I've yet to really get to test it in the curves. It feels good moving through traffic though, like the rear is just following right along... I can't wait to test it on some roads I know well.

Yep, Stock struts and shocks...

It didn't seem that low yesterday when I picked it up but this AM it's sitting pretty. The rear wheels are almost tucked under. There's easily less than inch gap back there. The front has roughly an inch and a half gap. It's all level though so there's no raking going on.

The rear wheels are toeing out a bit though so I really need to go get an alignment. The guy who put is all on said he sucks at alignments and I was better off going to the dealership. I need to call them to see how much that's gonna be. The spring/sway install ended up being a lot less than I was quoted so that's good but I still gotta get the alignment.

Other good news is I sold my old wheels from the RSX last night so I got some money there too (if it doesn't need to go into my house). Hopefully a pulley is next!

You're gonna get robbed at the dealership. Find an independent shop that can adjust it properly. Some shops don't like doing trailing arm stuff because it's a little tricky. To adjust toe on the rears, you have to loosen the bolts that attach the trailing arm to the body, then slide it side to side.

Congrats on the springs Griff. And yeah, even places like America's Tire can do an alignment and they do a pretty good job actually. Not to mention, it's about $75 bucks versus your first born at the dealership.
