Wow looks really good! I'm in Edmonton so I know what you mean by bipolar weather lol.
I'll be lowered soon with some other tasty treats but I shied away from body kit parts due to the amount of snow, clearance, etc...

How do you find tire wear on your bc's? I noticed that you mentioned that camber is all natural on your setup.. I recently just received camber kits for my front and rear, but don't know if i actually need them--- should i sell them? Just curious on how your tires are feeling with no camber correction!

Also, you gotta come up here for the 780tuners meets! Our season closer last year was incredible. I think the opener is set again for May...
I'm going to try and come down to Calgary for Illmotion's Sunday School meet.... just gotta get all my things installed before they start!

Haha sick! Do you have an instagram I can follow you and check your updates and stuff?

I did go to the Season Closer Meet last year and it was pretty awesome even though it snowed a bit near the end and got super cold lol. The drive back was the worse thing ever. Yeah definitely come down for the Illmotion show and I took part in it last year :P.

Well, I tucked 19's and was running with no camber kit because the TE37s I had weren't really aggressive at all. To be honest, it all depends on your wheel size on whether you need it or not. What camber kit did you buy? Hmm, not sure but they were okay. If you were to buy new tires, you can possibly use them for two seasons. But for me, I had a bunch of tires that blew out on me about three times lol! But I am not sure if its because of camber or not, or its just because the tires I got had ****ty sidewall support.

no instagram (yet) as my first round of mods were pretty basic.., waiting until spring to lower and then we'll see!

Thats scary on sidewall blowouts. I got the spc balljoints up front and the figs mega arms for the rear.
The roads in Alberta aren't the greatest so I can imagine that potholes etc will help cause damage.

How are you liking your spring rates? I'm going with 14k/10k... I have an AWD so I was told that theres about 200lbs of extra weight up front, so to avoid bottoming out, go with 14k up front (I was originally going with 12k/10k)... - Do you find it too rough with our roads? Or just right?

tbh it all depends on you. I have stiffer rates than yours and mine rides like OEM but better

Im still not sure haha. I probably should have bought my Coilovers first, but I got a good deal on my camber kits.
Now I'm coilover-less until I save up enough money. But I've got all the alignment I need :/

I may end up selling my camber pieces on the marketplace so I can have enough for my coils. I believe AWD has camber adjustment up front on a stock suspension? If so I'll resell my ball joints

Not sure if I missed it in the first couple of posts, but what are the specs on the TEs and tires?

Thanks

Picked up some new arms. Front and rear camber arms from CircuitMS. Great people to deal with!

Don't know how I missed this build. Everything looks great so far. I've always been a fan of the vinyl roof... everyone does it... but it always looks good every single time.
