rears were easy - fronts were annoying as the plastic cover had to come off to get to the last bolt

review:
ride is much better, less body roll than stock. In terms of comfort, i can feel that it is a touch harder *that's what she said* but it's still fine for a daily.

in terms of low - well if you want proper low then get coilovers and dont get springs... but for a nice reduction in gap then these will do fine.. i'm quite happy with them

I'm alot more confident around corners now but still you wouldnt want to scream around any corners in a cube

after alot of umming and ahhing i decided to polish a set of billets i bought and put them on to see what they would look like :)

key to polishing... fit the drill bit polishing pad to an angle grinder = powah!

my original idea was to go for a usdm/cali look which i reckon the wheels work with
