      Lol yes and no, because something always breaks, but when.I race I know I'm going to work on it to make sure it's running right. But yes in 5yrs I plan on buying a Porsche and retire from the cb game at that point.

        You never retire from the CB game, it's with you for life whether you want it to be or not.

            True.

            For now the build has slowed down some. I did get another piece of the daily suspension in. But need 2 more things, also got a ridgid flaring tool. So now I can do my brake lines.

            Also still tearing down my blue cb. Since I don't have a lift yet I'll be doing the engine pulling by Jack and muscle yay

              Slow work has been done so far had to pick.up these coils just for the sleeves, ordered the swift springs have a set at home. I went 8k front and rear with a taller spring for the rear. Later on I will change the perches out for better quality ones. Again this is my daily setup til I get fortune autos or amr coilovers

                I never knew fortune auto made coilovers for our cars. I had to go see for myself.

                  Yep they are on my to buy list for Lola. I just couldn't afford them for this summer. So hopefully this winter I can get my set. Af_1132 has them on his Accord and has written a review on them. Suspension setup is looking good Darkcloud.

                      Good luck with brake flaring tool. Make sure to clean the lines first or you have no grip.

                          Nice! Have fun adjusting the height... Took me over an hour of fine tuning (after letting them settle for almost two weeks). My Ground-Control sleeves are 1/8" per full rotation of the perch so I was able to dial in within a 1/16" variance all around (1/2 rotation of the perch, could have been as precise as 1/32" with 1/4 turns, but that was too much for my brain to calculate).

                          Edit: Just noticed the previous post had pictures showing the height markings on your sleeves... that should come in handy!

                            Ah you my friend have just started following me , I'm used to.lowering. So I preset the ride height every time I get voiceovers. This would be setup number #7 for the cbs I've owned and setup 15 or 16 since I've owned a civic and crx before owning a cb. Lol. But I know it's a headache luckily I'm not planning to go lower than 3in

                            Set my rear camber

                              Your experience truly exceeds mine! How do you preset the ride height?? I wish I could figure that out before installation!

                                Depends on the coil over which most are the same,I find out the spring length and how much they drop, at most 4in. So I set the fronts all the way down then spin them up to where I think I'll.have the perfect height and install them if they are still lower then I think I just adjust a few turn and done. Max time with install 30mins
