going down party

Postby tripwalking » Fri May 21, 2010 12:03 am

I'm planning to bring the passat to work friday and pull it in around 5 and get started with the coilovers. I don't have the wheels done, but I just have to get this thing down.

All are welcome! I'll probably be there late. Dave, I still have your spring compressor.

oh yes, forgot to mention... Rick, you're more than welcome to bring four black friends.

Dave, if you do come by, would you be able to swing by my house and grab a case of beers? :love:

I have no idea where to put the collar!

Glad to hear you're all coiled up! Pics?

Sits real nice brotha, looks great on those wheels.

Ps: you can raise coil overs? I thought they functioned like a ziptie...

The fat fives will completely change the look, so it'll have to be adjusted when those go on too. Plus there's quite a bit less backspacing so they would rub for sure. Right now it'll turn lock to lock without touching, on smooth ground. It scraped going in to my garage and getting off the lift last night :)

oh, and this current height is nothing but a "hmmm... I'll put the collar *here*" I had no idea where to start - couldn't compare to the stock struts at all and couldn't find anything online quick.
