Transformation is complete....(2 step process (pics))
Finally I have reached a stopping point...and I must say that I agree Tein CS compared to the Stock suspension is night and day. I installed my coilovers my self and treated those ABS lines like they were trip wires to explosives (especially since they cost $360 at the dealer if you damage them), an alignment is in my near future as soon as I decide whether I want to bring it up a hair or leave it the way it is...

The car looks really nice! I would drop it a little lower as well,but I would ride with it that way to allow the car to settle with the new set up! (A one finger gap all around would look nice!) -wringo
Nice job on the suspension and can't go wrong with 5 spoke wheels. I am also currently installing my own Tein CS's too. Like you said the wheel sensor are being treated extra careful. I have a question on the attacking the rear shocks. Did you have to remove the lower suspension arm or was there enough play that the rear suspension drop low enough and the shocks just slipped out altogether. In the fronts I did not have to disconnect the ball joint since the suspension dropped enought to slip out the shocks and
I was hoping for the same results in the removal of the rear shocks. Thanks
