Re: 19x9.5 et35 275/30 SQUARE?

Most popular is 265/35/18 squared on 9.5 et 35 with a 15mm in the rear. You'll be fine, but it might feel a hair heavier than 265s, a little more effort to drive.

Re: Stiffer Sway Bars, Mid pipes, Racebrace Strut Bar, 18" ARC-8's

I have euro headers and turner front bar and bushings. Was looking for $550 headers and $250 sway, but would do $740 and we're near each other. Pm me if interested, thanks.

Re: Supersprint Twin Pipe exhaust sect.2

Wouldn't an X (a real X, not the 2 into 1 back to 2) be better than the h pipe for our 8,200+ screamers? I say 8200+ assuming most people doing this mod would be making big power and have extended...

Re: Exhaust Opinions (thread #1,634,328)

Greatest mod ever for the $ IMO if you love motorsports sound, especially if you can scoop one up for like $600 or so. Gives 13hp and better throttle response. Much more fun and powerful than any...

Right behind the grill in the big middle opening of bumper, OE or CSL like in the case of the SC's current owner who has a VCSL front bumper.

I'll get more pics too!

Re: Aggressive alignment spec for daily

IF they're maxed out and you're pretty low - remember the wheel's vertical movement is along an arc. I'm low but not too low and I max out at about 1.5-1.6

Re: Exhaust Opinions, looking for input on a specific setup

Ya took mine out even when I had stock intake. Just got more engine noise then. Still get more engine noise now, perhaps more induction as you would assume, but I don't actually know.

Re: Exhaust Opinions (thread #1,634,328)

Both can be installed by yourself with basic enough tools imo. Buy the parts online to save a lot of $ and install it yourself!

There's a sensor in the gad pedal as well, but start at the front one first and work your way back.

Re: Subframe surprise

Yes, this area is very tricky as there are ridges and seams that can look like cracks. You need to really clean it and closely inspect it.
