Installed the Blue/Yellow SS Bilstein struts tonight (with help from Dave)

Rides like a dream now.. no more ungodly bouncing front end 5 minutes after I hit a bump

Pics (if anybody would like) will be coming this weekend

silenced alot of front end rattle and groans (due to the newer spring rubber mounts) :woot:

still have the original 84.5k endlinks on my ride too (next thing to get replaced)

Pssst... They're coil-over shocks.

Good job on getting them replaced. They'll get better after you get some miles on 'em. Mine are just getting broken in nicely now after about a month of driving, and somewhere in the neighborhood of 3000 miles. Some of the inital harshness is now removed -- just right IMO.

Yeah, I did the DJM 2/4 drop witch retained the stock front coil overs. The stance is great but I hate the way it bounces. Guess I'll have to keep my eyes open for a pair of the blue and yellow TBss bilstiens.

yeah i know.. but I only paid $115 shipped (included springs too) for the whole front setup

I doubt I am gonna get the DJM arms (crappy and overpriced).. probably gonna have arms fabbed up at a suspension shop
