Aha, that must have been why the train was late last Wednesday and I had to go back to the parking lot to take the car to make it in time for a meeting...

Re: The Phoenix Project

Started to work on the Phoenix Project again and switched the rear lower coil over brackets from side to side which means the car was raised around 1" and pretty much gave me the ride height I've been looking for. Even if the springs most likely will settle a bit I can adjust for that now and still have a margin. The "problem" I have now is to try to stay away from using the coil over shocks I had in the rear in the front... the front end is as of now set up to use original style springs and shocks, but it would of course be cool to have adjustable ride height in the front also.
