    Sorry man I'm never on here.... The way the rear should be is.... The perch with the locking rings sits on the lower control arm, the springs sits on top of that. You should have a really long bolt with two washers and a nut. The bolt goes through the perch and LCA. The full washer sits ontop the lca and the washer that's cut on both sides goes underneath the lca where there's room to slide it in... That's a pain though then lastly the washer...hope that helps

    Youll be fine dude, no problem.
    You're better off just using the screws provided because if you use bigger screws, and the skid plate gets caught on something, you'll end up damaging the car more as opposed to just having the skid plate ripping off.
    skidplate > car.

    You would have to go about buying an R18 skid plate, SI ones dont fit.
    I didnt install it, I sold mine cause it was an SI skidplate and didnt wanna dish out the money. You have to drill holes, four of them.

    hmmm.. not sure? I definitely didn't ask for any discount. That just happened to be what they charged me that day I guess. Wish I had a better answer for you!

    Hey David,
    Yeah it was awesome meeting everybody that day! Thanks you know what, I've been getting a lot of questions about it. I got it made. I went to this place in Metrotown "Overdrive" (it's upstairs by the sushi place/arcade/movie theatre) and I bought a basic metal black plate and had them create the graphic for me on the spot. Only took 5 minutes and $18 all in. Hope that helps and hope to see you both again soon!

    Hi David nice to meet you too, and thx for the nice comment on my ride.
    here is the link to suspension spec. Try to read more article about suspension setting, as everyone have a different style and needs.

    You can make them fit, neg camber, 205/40 or smaller tires, rolled/shaved fenders and it's do able if that's what you want.

    Google maps says 2hrs 15 mins. I'd say give yourself 2-2.5hrs.
