Na didnt take the lcas completly off so there's no risk of that.. god knows how its happened to be fair...
Ive just left them all to settle in for the night see if things look any better in the morning.. If not i'll have to take
The whole strut off again an see what the deal is.. Something cant be right, but to be fair when i dropped the front left side at first
That right rear was really high.. i thought it was just cause of the front opersite side being slammed but nope.. still isnt dropping properly
God knows to be honest.. i'll get to the bottom of it though! scratch

the thing is with ebays is that they never sit exactly the same as the front, the engine ways the front down more, i've see this problem a bunch of times with people rocking ebay's then it just turns out to be somethin stupid haha


if it is a mistake atleast you'll learn from it for the next time anyway so its all good i suppose.

I hear this.. the front have got a good 20mm to wind down id say.. backs are nearly wound down all the way,
backs way higher than the front, deffo cant get it slammed all round on ebays, well not from my experience anyway..
Minor though, never wanted the back too low anyway, and its deffo not about reverse rake lool
I aint to fussed at the minute anyway cause i cant wind everything down and level everything properly untill i have new tyres

Right..

Next thing i'll be doing is sticker bombing my spoiler and tilting it
Maybe the petrol cap too, and a few interior bits. will be all jdm stickers
Not random shit... not to everyones taste but i think it'll look sick,
Need a few light/white things on the car to go with the white wheels me thinks!
Thoughts?

Apart from that, ill be fitting the 4-2-1 tomorrow and sorting out my stereo n alla that crap
(can't believe how long it is to take out the standard headunit tbh,
dno why honda thought that was a ok thing to do..)

Im getting it mopped for pennys aswell, 30! profesional shizniz aswell,
main toyota dealership workshop

Basically.. its all coming together slowly Smile

just go at the stereo face witha hammer, the rest is a breeze.

imo dont go overboard with the white bits, it will look out of place.

Oh....The face lmao I'll have a try at the proper way, if it dont go to plan,
NATRUALLY i'll get the hammer out rabbit

And i know i know you're right. Just a bit though.. not to much
i deffo think it could do with abit of white though, and sticker bombing
is the only way i can do it without it lookin disgusting.. i.e white wing mirrors for christ sake.

there is a proper way to get out but i cant remmember it, i'll have a look for the link for you as it will save you loads of time, i was completely baffled when i saw the screws at the back.

if you manage how to fathem it out the proper way, do a little write up as this has been a problem i've seen loads on different forums.

Small Update

Got pissed off with the pinky'ness, it went to get mopped but to no avail, it was just making it shiny as hell, not red. Sad

So i went for the unthinkable and got wrap... its not a perminant fixture
just untill i've got the P For a respray!
been quoted about 250 for bonnet boot and side to be done which i don't think Is to bad..

Anyway, will let the pics do the talking, not to most peoples taste i know already!
(Petrol cap ain't staying i dont think, looks f*ckin chavy, will either just leave it red or
Sticker bomb it.. unsure yet)






And no yeah i do rub bad on the back. lol!

They are i think Smile EXIP Or "MIM 1400's" the guy i bought them off told me they were RA's but i knew RA's didn't have a dish so i looked into it!
They are pretty rare tbh, not many ek's around with them anyway! let alone ED2 sedans cheers

Keep them they are very rare, if you ever wanted to get them polished Rainbow polishers in Bham done mine 100.

Tyre suggestion 165 50 R15's would give you perfect fitment on these :-)
