Default Finished the C2 suspension refresh

Finally got the suspension updates done on my '96 C2. Been saving up parts for a while now, so it's great to finally get all these things done to the car:

-BBi RS uprights
-Full monoball suspension bushings
-Tarret/Rennline arms
-Solid subframe mounts
-KW V3 coilovers
-Rennline top mounts, camber plates, bushings, etc.
-SS brake lines
-Painted calipers to match the car
-Rebuilt the steering rack
-RS sways & end links
-SS clutch bleed line run into the engine bay
-RS heater bypass tube
-Removed rear window wiper properly (new glass, removed all wiper bits, recovered parcel shelf)
-New tires
-Alignment & corner balance
-Some PDR ding removal

Many thanks to the folks at BBi Autosport for their professional services in getting the car dialed in. Car feels good, went from crappy handling with lots of bump steer to crisp handling with excellent turn-in response. Here are some pics:

Sorry, don't have any before/after PDR pics. It was just something I thought could be done while the local PDR guy was visiting the shop. I had a ding on the engine lid between the "Carrera" script and the edge of the lid. It's gone now.

Very nice looking. IMHO, the MY02 wheels look outstanding on 993s.

Man that must be an unbelievable "night and day" difference. Enjoy the new ride!

Oh yeah, compared to before it's night and day. I've been too busy to be able to take it out for a full day's drive yet, so I don't have much to report on it yet other than turn in response is super crisp, bump steer is gone (previous owner had lowered it RS -10 without correcting for anything), and the handling is much tighter than before.

I'll put up a better "review" after I've been able to drive it for a bit up in the nearby mountains.

What balljoints have you used on your front wishbones?, are they specifically for the uprights or could they be used with standard uprights?.

Also does your ride height merit the use of RS uprights?, it doesn't look super low to me?.

Cheers

The RS uprights, ball joints, and inner/outer tie rods are all from BBI Autosport. The car is at RS height at the front & RS+10 at the rear
