Call me crazy, but this might be related to your AFR issue

You're crazy man. I totally agree and on my list is a new header install which has enough sensor bungs.

New wheels looks great!
The wheel has already sold locally.

This was my main reason. When Installed that first wheel I was 26 and didn't have a Fiance. I can't mess up my face or she'll leave me!

Engine bay pix...? Looks good and sounds like it shouldn't be too hard to shake down these issues.

What are you doing with your old car? I may be interested in it. Just down the road in Vancouver, WA.

I was able to get some work on the car done last weekend. The suspension that was on it was some 14 year old ground control suspension that was rusty as can be, super hard and just generally pretty tired. I had some new ground control coilovers that I had planned for the last car that I installed along with 12.5mm spacers, apex race studs, new sway bar links and 4 front M Roadsters

Parts ready to roll


quickjack set up


Rear suspension






Studs


Studs and spacers




Suspension parts


Sway Bar Links


Front Suspension


I was under the impression that you could adjust the front suspension with it installed but that doesn't seem to be the case. Did I install this incorrectly?


I like the car raked a bit so I've got the back raised up but I'm still playing with the ride height



Nice to get under the car and back to wrenching.

Thanks!

In regards to adjustment what are you referring to? I see the tab that the Koni adjuster would lock into and 3 nuts should allow you to adjust camber?

Not the camber the adjuster on the top of the shock that does the firmness of the shock.

Koni makes a little tool that just slides on and allows you to adjust that, there is another version with a longer neck that would allow for more clearance, but if the adjuster is under the lip of the hole yeah that might be hard to adjust without moving the camber plate.

I have that adjuster. Its just in a position under the strut tower that makes it more awkward than I expected. Glad to hear that its installed correctly though and jsut the way it is.
