    Finally sorted out my dolly dilema after a few ideas so it was time to disassemble the lower portion of the car.

    Everything broke down for either powdercoating, refurbishing, or replacement. Found these fr and rr nos (new) KYB struts and installed them with a set of uncut stock springs a couple months before the motor quit so they will be returning. At the stock height the car drove awesome and floated down the road like a mini cadillac compared to riding on the 2 coils like i was used to. It was nice and my internal organs were surely grateful but she needs to be back where she looks best, on the ground.. With having no suspension options and wanting to keep the drop static i have no choice but to hack the stock coils again.

    Here she is being picked up from the paint and body guys so they can work their magic. 1st thing in line is to pull body panels and strip paint down to the bare metal. Im interested to see whats lurking under the paint.

    Dooood I know the feeling! I had driven a stock 1g once and it felt sooo comfortable and boat-like ride. Kinda miss the ride sometimes but eh it looks soo good on the ground so I'm definitely not gonna go back to stock anytime soon LOL

    Have you looked into custom coilover setup? I found out that ebay coilover sleeves fit ours but you gonna need a custom valved struts to match too, maybe custom valved Koni inserts? Or you can do something like I do, shouldn't be too hard (Y) I know the feeling with riding with just 2 coils...
