You see, I am mature and responsible.

Woo hoo I gots my internet tethering back after being on the phone with Apple Suport for over an hour & finding out AT&T does not offer tethering I still was kinda ok eh ! because I'm in Canada and my carrier is Rogers & my data plan is 6 gigs when I got my contract so after numerous restores and such I get a free i-phone corse of what to's so if anything keep your phone backed up , contact's etc as you can always add stuff down the road.

Oh I know... it's what runs through my mind too any time I feel like putting the hurt on someone.... well, except for the Chris parts

My mac keeps the iPhone and all data backed up automatically, so restoring is never a problem

Glad it's back working

Must be old school management how is a business suppose to survive with dumb azz guidlines like that. As far as I could tell the group was pretty behaved. The city of Rossmoor is the same way overcontroling if you don't look like a local expect to get pulled over.

No more SUV!

Took the Stang to Stillen for H&R coilover and brake pad install today. Got there about 8:15 am and they started about 9:00. They finished most of the hardware installation by noon and then put it on the alignment rack after lunch for height adjustment, panhard bar adjustment and wheel alignment. That took about 4 & 1/2 hours and I left there at 5:00, a total of about 6 & 1/2 hours labor. They also put in a heavier adjustable front swaybar. It was a long day but it didn't drag on too long because they allowed me to take pictures and watch the install.

I love the ride height and it really doesn't feel overly harsh on the road. I can feel a definite jolt going over larger cracks and holes but for some reason (and I'm not complaining) regular freeway chatter seems slightly smoother now.

I had all the original parts bouncing around in the back seat and trunk making a bunch of noise so I still need to do a "real" street test. I also have not tested the handling properties because of all the loose parts in the car. I did scrape the front spoiler going out of Stillen's parking lot. But I did not scrape going into my own driveway. I didn't get the exact drop dimensions, I think it was about 1 & 1/2" all around. I'll try and get those measurements tomorrow. I don't think I will be able to make it over your speed bump Jed. We'll see!

Yikes! 6.5 hrs x shop rate =


New stance looks awesome!

This is the the way it should come from the factory.
