The brown truck dropped these off today. Steeda subframe support braces. I'll be installing tomorrow.

Got them installed. Driver side took about 10 min. The passenger side took almost 40 due to having to adjust the front subframe bracket. While I was under there I noticed I'm missing an exhaust clamp and my exhaust is dented. I'm pretty sure this is from the construction around here where the car bottomed out the other day on a road with a high center crown.







The dent.

I just took the car for a quick spin and did a few launches from idle. Very minimum amount of wheel hop left. I didn't even notice any. The car is definitely more planted to the ground.

I just took the car out for another spin and the rear feels much more planted in the corners.

Got the front sway bar on. Took about 2 hours and an hour of it was the damn rear bolt on the driver side mount.

Passenger side.



Driver side from the top. The excuse for my drinking tonight is right under the alternator.



Driver side.



The back is all done. Much easier. Ended up dropping the exhaust to reach the bolts for the mounts easier. I think not using the billet mounts would cut this whole install front and back down by an hour.

Rear passenger



Rear driver



The back


Bonus shot of jacking rails in action.

Ok so after a couple days of driving and finally getting some spirited driving in today I think the sway bars made a significant improvement in handling. The car feels very nimble and neutral compared to before. I went with the middle hole in the rear and the 2nd stiffest setting up front.

Would recommend this to anyone looking to feel more contacted to the car in the corners.

Those jacking rails are pretty nifty. The billet mounts look nice and beefy. What's next on the mod list?

This is pretty sweet looking:

The grilles look great but I just can't justify the expense of them when I can do 2 or 3 other mods that are functional for the price.

Next on the list will be vertical links and adjustable toe links.

Then a little cosmetics in the engine

carbon fiber radiator cover and fuse box cover.
painted coil and engine cover as well as strut covers.

UNDERHOOD DRESS UP : JLT PERFORMANCE, Home of the JLT TRUE COLD AIR KIT


then steel braided brake lines and better break fluid. Going to sign up for an HPDE hopefully before summer.
