^^I use wonder wafers and some of them lasted up to two years. The "long lasting" one was a Cherry. I buy them in bulk and use them in the car's I clean and detail.

Megan EZ Coilover's came in today. Probably do the ball joints and coilovers on the same day within the next week or two.

glad your happy bro. i did the same thing you did with coilovers and suspension. let me tell you this.... i have megan Ez too and striaght out the box installed without adjustment... it sits low. i had to raise up the front because of rubbing and UCA banging the shock tower. i have my settings 8 clicks from full soft and it rides like stock. Trying messing with the settings on the coils.. you'll love it! Clean whip BTW.

^ definitely. thanks for the info. did you install yours? i heard that they go low. I will probably also have to raise them up in the front. isn't there a way to cut away in there to clear the UCA's when they bang like that?

I'm tellin you, searching, finding and figuring out these DIY's makes this forum for me. Today's DIY was by "SZA".Re-Wrapping your worn out or cracked and nasty Leather Center Armrest.

Before



Factory Foam was fine enough for me still



I guess the important part was molding and stretching until it was about as tight as i could get without ripping. I paid $40 for mine on eBay and the stitching wasn't perfect so no matter how tight you pull it, it isn't factory perfect seams. 2 Screwdrivers, Super Glue and Binder Clips from Wal Mart. I only had 12 so i would just do pieces and sections at a time.



After: Installed back on.



Took just over an hour total from the time i started taking the armrest off the car.
Oh, and of course, here is the DIY i used. Super helpful.
