Way back far far away in January of 2018, I put my wheels (Work Emotion XD9) and coilovers (BC Racing extreme low) up for sale. My wheels went to Mitch in Montana (that stance tho)
And my coils went to Colin in Colorado, who loves how his OBXT handles now.
Never realized the first letters of names and states were the same...weird.
Anyways, in February I recieved my new wheels and got to work getting them coated with wheel wax, and getting tires mounted.
THEN FINALLY MY COILS ARRIVED. LIFE WAS COMPLETE. March 28th.
Or so I thought. I ordered a kit of Super Extreme Lows with shortened shock bodies and 20k spring rates all around. The coils looked like they were going to be perfect. However, after installing them and putting the car on the ground, I was nowhere near the ride height I thought I was going to be at. The fitment was trash. This was April 15th.
I contacted BC and they were willing to help me out in any way possible. After picking their brains and talking to my friends, we decided to go with a 4” spring with 18k rates all around, and even shorter shock bodies all around as well. These new coil parts were delivered to me in the middle of May, one month later after installing them the first time around. Swapping the parts out on the coilovers was a lot easier than I expected. May 21.
May 25th, Alex and Devyn installed the coilovers while I was at work (special shoutout to my step-dad Brian for letting them use his lift and tools). The rears were good, the fronts needed to be machined for more camber.
After a weekend of cutting, crying, drinking beer, and buying smaller tires, we got everything to fit. I’m so happy with how it sits, although eventually I want to go a little lower in the rear. Thank you to my boys Alex, Brandon, Devyn, Miles, Casey, Brian, Victor, and anyone else who helped me get this stupid thing all set up. Love you all, thanks for the read <3
