How long did the install for the exhaust take you, and did you do it yourself?
[snapback]472216[/snapback]

took the exhaust to a shop...took 40 min...not hard at all...much easier to do with a lift thats for sure!

JRV did my coilovers...took him like 3 days! haha...nah it was like 4 hours for the coils...my car gave him some probs! she likes me better!

My rear mufflers are not well aligned. The left is good, but sticks in a bit OR the right is out too far. Also the right side is a bit lower and hangs towards the middle.

Any idea how to fix this?

Nice car, I like how your mufflers line up

YEA...mine were like that too...didn&#39;t line up perfectly at all. there is always a need for tweaking with that kind of install. The system is never gonna be a perfect fit unless its custom. So what i did was have the shop weld on the pipes to where it fit perfectly in the middle with the same depth. Cause with just the clamps that MF gives you, it doesn&#39;t work strong enough to line up correctly...

Hope this helps...

Forgive my ignorance of coilover suspension but why are the so hard to get lower?* I saw a couple cars with ksports that had been dropped another good 1.5 to 2 inches from where yours is and where mine is with my springs.* What&#39;s different?

I need to start reading up on coilovers soon...looks like I&#39;m going to be buying some.

I don&#39;t know if the Teins actually require preloading the springs, but you&#39;re right about the Ksport/D2 setups. I actually just lowered my D2 fronts last night and the hardest part is simply dropping the lower fork from the shock so the lower section can be spun up to whatever height you want. It actually took me a couple hours, because it requires a bit of finagling, and some bolts just don&#39;t cooperate unless you&#39;re using airtools.

Given that, it sure seems like a bitch if you&#39;ve got to load the springs to adjust height on the Teins. I would think that reduces suspension travel too if you lower them.

Anyway, the D2&#39;s look awesome and I love the ride. I rode in Stretch&#39;s car with the Teins, though, and they seem like a really nice street setup.

APC mesh...mounted straight to the stock black mesh using twisty ties! haha...it works! You just have to cut the apc mesh to directly fit over the stock black stuff...easy as that!
