    wasn't really a hassle, however 3 weeks later they just now seem to be getting around to transferring my plate, which I need ot pay $200 for since it's vanity. But it took them 3 weeks to get to it lol. and I'm supposed to get a pass to the harris hill raceway.. no one seems to know the details yet I know of another owner who bought his car and got his pass

    Installed my Auto EXE links today (Correctly I hope). Hopefully they hold up well with the CS sway bar and Hotchkiss brackets. I actually ended up making them slightly longer to use the stiffer setting, because when I had them short the angle was very acute and the bar was close to the axle.
    In Picture - White Ultra Racing Lower Front and Lower Rear arm bars, Dark Blue H&R Springs, Light Blue C/S Swaybar (stiffest, hopefully these $300 links don't break..), and red Auto EXE links. Hotckiss brackets not visible.

    Next item, going to grab the Mazda 6 adjustable camber arm and have it modified so I can use it.. I need to fix the camber before I buy new tires.

    Nice job Chris.
    I'm done with the audio on my car, except some minor tweaking.
    I will have to concentrate on the springs, camber and wheels.
    I will have to remove remove the camber arm and do some measurements. I'm thinking about plugging in the existing holes and drill new hole off center.
    I have to see the bushing, to see how much room is there to do this.
    If it's possible, I would do both ends. It won't be adjustable.

    Good luck. I just hope I can find a machine shop local that will not charge an arm and leg to extend the bushing out.

    Yes im probably going to have the end link middle changed. Ocassional clink even on soft at full length. I think its partly b/c the cs bar is not was wide as stock. I probably should re-examine the bracket mount too, I may need to add a shim or something under it., or it may be loose.

    Did you require any additional relays/wiring for the hellas or was what came in the kit sufficient?

    compared the mazda 6 camber arms I bought to the OEM arm (at the dealership) today. Figure I need at least 30mm of extra length.
