Thanks for the kind words guys. Took out for a drive yesterday after the alignment. She drives really great. Feels good to be behind the wheel after all the work. She gets into boost really nice. I do need to update the stereo as it sounds like all speakers are blown. I did have a few small leaks, but they where easy fixes. I have a couple other plans for the car and painting a few parts next year. I should have the wheels in Jan.



Great deal on BC coilovers. Hit me up.

Awesome work! You have inspired me to do some work under my car also! What did you use for paint on the rear subframe & trailing arms?

Trailing arms where new from the dealer. The rear subframe I used regular black rustoleum paint.

Any reason why you powder coated the front subframe verus painting? I was thinking of powder coating my rear suspension, but not sure if the bushing would have to be removed.

It was easier to powdercoat it then paint I guess. Bushings would have to be removed.

The balance is just right. It is not too much and it is not over kill. Very nice and simple with a twist. The e39a at its best!
