Contact forum members Nels - he still has some washer kits available, but it would take a few days I think to get them

The washer specs are in the FAQ - you could always go to the hardware store...

Pay $5 to become a Supporting Member and you can PM. It is worth the $5.

Thanks...my last meeting of the day is in 45 minutes. After that I'm pulling the V in the back yard to clean her. I'll post some pics after it's clean.
All I did to lower it was get the Eibach Pro kit and the washers from Nels. I didn't need anything else.

Here is a link to Nels motorsports company. It is called Raposo Motorsports. He also makes the rear strut tower brace that Luke at Lindsay sells:

Looking to pick up the Eibach kit. I'm looking for more cosmetic purpose than performance. Can anyone give me an idea on ride quality with the Eibachs? thanks.

What part of the country do you life? I'm sure there is someone that is lowered close by and would be willing to give you a ride in their car.

As far as lowering which route is the best to go for the performance aspect.

You can tell the car is lowered!! It feels a lot more planted and stable at all speeds. The ride is harsh over pot holes etc.

Are you selling this thing or modding it? :confused:

BacDoc

Me? Modding it. I don't track it or anything other than some occasional spirited driving. Like the lowered look.

My post was to the OP.

He posts he is modding the V and then he starts a new thread about having to sell it.

Make up your mind before you start dumping money into it.

He posted this thread back at the beginning of August. BACDOC revived it today, coincidentally on the same day as the OP posting that he has to sell it.

Another question for the group...

My fiancée bought me the Eibach ProKit for Christmas. I bought a set of Eibach Springs a few years ago for my Mustang and had no problem installing them in by garage with some basic tools. I am sure that a number of you guys have already installed this kit on your V and I was just curious to know if you ran into any complications or if there is anything other than what comes in the kit that I will need. Thanks!

the GC's are sweet, just make sure you get the Feff fix for it, or else you'll have the most annoying knocking when you hit potholes/uneven roads... Nels sent you an email regarding this issue also...

Question: I have installed the front springs (eibach pro kit) and was too lazy to do the rears so I had a local meineke install the rears using the spacers I got from nels. Now I have a message that comes on saying "service stability system." abs and t/c lights are lit. What went wrong here? Is this normal? Thanks in advance for your help.
