My Bilsteins and Bump stops are in and need to get them installed before the next Fast event! I will need some Technical help with this and possibly some one with spring compressor tool. I can always get the tool from Autozone Commercial account...So who's up to help and possibly do some work on your own car at my Shop on Hillsborough Ave. I do have a lift so it will make it a breeze!

9am Aug 31st Sunday

Shop address if you haven't been:
4010 E Hillsborough Ave
Tampa, Fl 33610
near the intersection of 40th street. almost next to Salems Gyro's


IN:
1) Loren
2) Taso
Maybe:
1) Josh

Saturday works best for me, but I do not want you to base what you're doing on me.

What are the odds my Teflon gaskets are still between my shock mounts? Lol

If you're still on stock shocks, odds are pretty good.

It's the same product as fatcat but about 25% less expensive. That's not terrible.

I'm on 4 Audi A6 100's for $16.75 shipped and a $9.50 rebate because one was cracked where I was going to cut it anyway. I may have missed something but they seem to work for me.

I didn't actually arrive until almost 10:00, but we knocked out Bill's shocks by 12:30. Had a guest appearance by Ben, rockin' the Camry.

I conned Bill into spending an hour or so fabricating a bracket for my stock shock tower brace that was missing a left bracket. We patterned it after his and made it match form/fit/function. All it needed was paint. Then I got home and realized that the brace I have (it's from an '03) is different! It's non-adjustable, and the bracket is different! We should be able to adapt it with another chunk of steel and a bit more welding. But... dammit!

Just read this. Damn it all to hell... #-o Well we will have to do my Clutch in the near future. So we can have a tech day and take care of that as well... maybe sooner...
