New Suspension Set Up


So finally had the time to have my buddy help me install all my new goodies:

MM C/C Plates
MM Bump-steer
MM CO kit with Bilstein's
GMS K member and A arms

Everything fit fine, was worried about the GMS K member but it ended up lining up good. First time adjusting the CO and it was pretty slammed to the ground and took it for a test spin after bolting everything up and it ripped my fender lining out Is the lining really necessary?! Anything else I should look into replacing for the front end? My car is just a DD and I use it to commute to work.




Currently sits up about an inch higher then it is in this pic and I don't have any rubbing issues or issues with my tires ripping my liner out. . .

Couple things. One, I want more pictures! Two, did you roll your fenders? Lastly, the inner well liner keeps dirt, mud and debris from flinging into everything.

If it makes you feel better, I haven't had the liners up front for the two years I've owned mine. Did as well through rain, snow etc. It gets dirty much faster which sucks, and be careful with the doors. It allows gunk, rocks, sniw, salt, etc to enter where your hinge is. Hard to clean and depending on what is there will scratch your paint or make it creak when you open your door.

Just the ones already on the gms arms. My buddy says he had those ball joints and it didnt seem like it dropped his car at all. he didnt use the spacer either. Only problem going that low is setting the bump steer and obviously rubbing.

Had to baby it home since the alignment was way off. Going in this afternoon and I'll let you know after. So far with 175lb springs it was smooth though

Ugh look like they are unable to to align it to spec. Something must be wrong. The guy said if I lower it more it'll help with adjustment lol... I guess I'll get a small spacer so I don't rub when I lower even more now

My buddy had a little trouble drilling through but other than that it was easy.
