I'm back with lots of updates that I haven't showed.
So I decided to go a bit experimental for education/curiosity reasons. I have done a full suspension upgrade using some of the cheapest parts I've ever purchased LOL (guys don't BM me, I have plenty of money to go legit if I wanted to). BTW most of these mods have been done 3 months ago, so I'll post a review on whats good and what's bad on my next post.
Generic ebay coilovers - $40
Eibach pro shocks(used but never installed) - $100
DNA extended tops hats - $56
other suspension components:
rdt upper camber arm & rear toe bar - $71
rdt rear camber arm - $25
emusa rear control arm, subframe brace, and sway tie brace - $90
emusa front lower control arm - $70
$452 total for every single suspension component possible .......LOL SO CHEAP!!!!!
Here are most of the parts lined up and I went ahead and assembled one coilover.
Getting the car up
New suspension setup installed (notice the coilovers are a little short, sadly the ebay coilovers are only 6 inches and integras ideally need 7-8 inch long coilover springs)
Originally I wasn't going to buy any control arms, but sadly the bolts on the OEM braces literally welded themselves to the OEM shock assembly so I had no choice but to purchases new control arms.
bent the lower shock mount before that bolt would back out LOL
Finally got all the rear suspension components on, I hate when parts are seized.
Sooo after everything was done, I realized I had a few more parts that needed replacing...... Time for reinforcements!!!!
I ended up need all new tie rods (inner and outer), new boots, and trailing arm bushings (they were shot).
Moog parts - $129
Sadly I haven't taken pictures of these yet bc I actually didn't install them. I was tired guys lol.
AFTER everything was done and installed, Here is the first picture of Oji-san with his new wheels finally mounted on. Looking like a smooth oldskool gansta (show some respect).
