WITH THAT SAID..........HOLY SEX BALLS OF LIGHTNING.
Just went on a test run of the new suspension setup on my usual course I go.

I am totally and completely blown away. The car is just so planted. I mean like grounded to the ground (I keed I keed).

I am so happy with this setup. Stage 2+ is PERFECT for back road adventures. Instant linear power and didn't ever worry about losing traction once. (XDS is a beautiful thing).

Wow. That's all I can say right now.

Nice. I'm seriously jelly. My DG springs don't do jack crap for handling. This will be addressed soon though!

Looking nice after the drop! I had talked myself out of springs because I was convinced there would be no positive impact on performance ... now you have me wanting VWRs again.

I was skeptical about it simply because I didn't want to muck up my ride quality. It improved actually.

Thankfully this gamble paid off

What did your camber measure after your VWR spring install? I believe our cars have built in camber adjustments for the alignment shops to fix right?
