I find comfort is relatable to stock, but a lot les sway side to side. taking on ramps is always fun. I think I've dropped it about 2" and I've added no camber other than the natural camber. not sure how much is there but I'm running 17x8.5 et30 wheels and I find the fitment is a good level off aggressiveness. no rubbing issues and my fenders are not rolled or pulled. if I got them done I could easily go lower, tons of clearance in the fronts and the rear.

Changed my engine oil. Previously Mobil 0W40. Wix filter and Castrol 5W40 for $35 at a local store, couldn't pass it up. Next week, spark plugs--going with NGK PZFR5Q-11
