Default some upgrades

Today my 91 c2 is getting a few upgrades. When finished, it'll have a pss10 set up, H&R sway bars and new front bushings from Elephant. Also, a FabSpeed strut bar. The shop is being really cool and sending me photos as things get added. So, I'll reshare if anyone cares. I can't wait to get it back.

I am. Can you send me some pics? Are they the plastic cap that you force in and it clips in place? The original caps all cracked when I removed them to balance some new tires. I guess they were too old.

Looks nice. Do you have driveway issues?
How do the new bushings feel?
Was your old suspension original and clunky?

I've only got about 60 miles on this set up. So, I haven't run into too many driveways yet. I'm sure I will have to be way more careful.

The new set up feels great. Way more responsive. It is a harsher ride but more of what i feel a sports car should feel like. It's also not terribly harsh. It feels like you are more connected to the road and the car.

As for the bushings.....I don't get the steering wheel wobble at 40 mph any more. I'm not sure how much of the new handling aspects can be attributed to the bushings or the new set up as a whole. But, I do like it.

Looks very good, great upgrade. I am looking at the side shot, hard to tell with the shadows in the picture, but the front end seem higher than the rear, it should have a rake towards the front.

I see what you mean. I think it's an optical illusion because of the way the front wheel sits so far forward in the fender. There is a better pic from before this one from the shop that shows the angle better.
