I'm not sure I want to do the back. I kind of like that raked look - lowered front end and rear up in the air. Harks back to the muscle car days!

you completely took off your sway bar and didnt put it back on??? any problems faced with doing that?

i took my car to JR electronics here in miami to install the front springs and they ended up not doing it but now my sway bar is loose on the driver side. i tried tightening it but its as tight as it gets and its still loose.. should i just take it off?

Problem With Google

You may want to speak to Google about your site because there is an alert on it at Google. Hopefully this link will work correctly:
Google Safe Browsing diagnostic page for randyzimmer.com

With the springs I have put on, the bar is unnecessary.
With stock springs, you should keep it on.

The "bolt" part of the sway bar link has a torx fitting on the end.
You will need a tool to hold the stem while you tighten the nut.
Find the right tool by sizing it to the one on the strut end of the link as it is easier to see.

Thanks for the tool, I'll see if I can use it.

I found a sitemap that I never put there, so hopefully, removing that file will do it.

Pretty sure its fixed now.
Besides the sitemap.
I found an entry in my index.html that went to .ru!
Scary stuff.
Chrome says it's all better now.
Thanks for the info!
