Jealousy...

I have been putting this off for quite sometime under the pretense of "waiting for full alignment to get them." But when one of your best friends finally gets his car on the ground, and you get to see it in the morning...

You realize that you need to do it before he gets back. I would like to consider my car slammed, and tough... but Martin's Jag just oozes with glory.

While Martin's car is in no way in drivable condition, the difference wont be substantial when he gets back and has the tools to roll the fenders.

I mean come on...

So in order for me to get my front clearance down to a single finger gap I purchased a pair of .25" (6.35mm) spacers. While I still wont be able to get it to SUPER MAXIMUM, it will be better than it is now. And if I tone down on the front camber, and lower it a good .25" - .5" it may just be perfect.

While I had the car in the air, and due to the talk I had with the guys and MSA, I removed my brake switch and replaced it with a union-T connector

And gave the Wilwood proportioning valve a bit more clearance; I couldn't get full brake pressure to the rear.

Later today I will have a buddy head over to the house to help me with bleeding the brakes. And maybe, just maybe, I will have a package arrive in the mail and something awesome will finally be documented for the Z community to see.
