Default Still Wednesday, Feb, 13 Update...

We installed it. Needed to cut chop and re-weld some parts but it bolt up! Just kidding... Absolutely no issues with the install. Everything went in perfectly. Its raining out and cant really do much but the car felt better than on 2008 stock or the swift springs. Bumps get soaked up a bit better, its more nimble. I have no regrets. I will look for more updated parts. bushing etc out of 2012. I will give extensive review as I drive more.

Its better than 08, I drove some more today...My review isn't going to help you since I cant compare the 08 suspension to 2012 back to bak . I drove on Swift-springs for a whole year. I like it so far and would do it again. Seriously 2012 can not be worse than 2008 so no matter how you slice it it will be better regardless. Also I had Bridgestones before and now I have Michelins so that alone is an upgrade.

Congrats, very cool to see this all worked out. This might be a nice compromise with my wife for a better ride but not going with a firmer coilover setup. Thanks so much for all of the info!
