So I've had the suspension on a week or so now and could tell from driving over bumps the front was harder than the rear so needed to soften then up a little. I thought it would be a "squeeze your hand between a gap" kind of jobbie, but instead turned into an hour of removing several bolts to then carry out a job that took literally seconds to do

Ended up making the front 6 clicks softer so will see how I get on before alignment on SaturdayImage

Great thread mate, seeing your insulation work has given me the motivation to go carry on with mine! :lol:

The insulation is by far the best and most satisfying part of the build. The difference in sound, feel, noise etc is unreal

Allignment day!!!

I had the garage to set the BC Racing coilovers to 2° positive camber when the fitted them, which today on the 4 wheel allignment machine resulted in 1.14° and 1.35° of negative camber which I'm happy withImage

Time to fit the splitter!

I tried not meithering the Mrs but I gave in and had to get to help me to offer our up and tape it in place

Drilled the holes... Easy
Fit the bolts.... Arrgghh! My big hands and small spaces don't go well together and kept on dropping the washers and bolts.

Middle bolt was a nightmare to fit and I lost the washer and with no spare parts provided I had to just bolt it up... I know it'll hold thoughImageImageImageImageImage
