    I'm used to rolling around on the ground, I'm just happy to be in a heated garage lol.

    Good luck
    Thanks, I may have to experiment with different nozzles, I'll find out when it comes time for tuning it in.

    I never drove the V on stock sways so I can't really say. I took them off my cts when I bought the V and switched them right away. My car handles pretty good, so I assume they are doing their job lol, sorry I couldn't be more help.
