so this past weekend, we installed my airrex struts, and accuair management. This was our first time doing an air install, and honestly it was that bad. The accuair kits are complete, and installation is very basic. Total labor time was about 10 hours, andd that includes: breaks, lunch, and f'ing around.


I also forgot to mention that we did this on the ground in front of my house lol


fronts installed



rears installed, we also threw on my megan camber arms, traction arms, and toe arms which i had purchased previously.


and heres a random picture of the UL rear seat brackets and junk.


the outcome.....

later on today i have an appoointment for an alignment. hopefully i can get more negative camber with these arms, and get these wheels to tuck

You should be able to achieve a decent amount of negative camber. I had mine dialed in to around -6 in the rear with more adjustment available.
