We hit the track with Flyin' Miata's latest power adder.
Huh. Now to do the back end so I don't have a crazy rake.
How many coils did you take?
In reply to Nick (picaso) Comstock:
About 1 and a third. There's still plenty of pre-load, and they're open-ended springs so it's not done in an unsafe manner. It's just more dramatic than I thought.
In reply to G_Body_Man:
Preload isnt as important as shock travel, you can tie a ziptie around the strut rod and drive around, jack it back up and see how far up the ziptie was pushed by the strut
Why do I like otherwise unmodified cars lowered? I just do!
In reply to chiodos:
The shock has enough travel to be comfortable, but won't cause the car to bottom out under full compression.
Looks like the tops of the tires are even with the fender edge. I like that.
Missed you at Autocross Thursday. Your friend with the silver Toyota pickup was there. It was the battle of the trucks!

Yes that does tend to look good on just about anything.
Maybe this should be in Minor Confessions, but I always liked stink bug stance.
In reply to SkinnyG:
I would have been there, but my white walls are completely destroyed, and I need to get around to having my Nokians mounted.
You might want to consider an alignment. Lowering can screw with it, and it would suck to chew up a new set of tires.
