$55 bucks at Aluminum Head Rebuilders, the guys there are solid! Hopefully I can get it all completed over the weekend.

Coilovers showed up this morning so spent the day installing those. They went in pretty easy, had to Sawzall one of the old struts out, and only had to pull wheels to level it out once. A single corner is now 1/4" higher than the rest (shot for 25.5") but it's good enough for now. Will adjust them once more in a month or so once the springs have settled.









​​​​​​Set front dampers to L+10 and rears to L+8, lowered the rears to L+6 after a quick test drive. HUGE improvement over the worn stock suspension.

Tint will come off eventually for new stuff, has spots where it was knicked, cut, and just not adhering good. But, tint was on the original window sticker so not too bad for 25 years later

And wheels will come at some point but I'm holding out for the right era-correct set in the right specs. Not in any rush, enjoying the gigantic sidewall that comes with rolling on 16's.

Might look like deflated air suspension but doesn't ride all janky like it would if that were the case, or like it was with the worn factory units. Stays very level through turns and braking now.

You can pull off wide 18s but they have to be set up just right. "Tsuraichi" is the term you want to aim for.

19s are perfect, you can go with bit less of aggressive wheel and it'll look great. Nowadays tires are plentiful too.

I've always liked the monoblock AMG style wheels on them.

Or even the BMW style 92s or wh5SpdH22 wants

Spent a little bit of time trying to dial in the suspension. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to lower the rear or raise the front. I think the rear needs to go down a tad still :’(

Wood Lorinser.

Final form right here tho if I can source the parts...





Gonna ride it at current height for a few days, but definitely going to come up 0.5" all the way around. Will likely soften the dampers a bit more as well. Did not feel like doing that **** today though after a trip to San Marcos for 2 big pieces of furniture.... and other "miscellaneous" errands
