Along with all new bushings, control arms and brakes through out the car. I'd rather skimp a little on the coils over the control arms bushings and brakes. I only have so much money. As it stands I'm spending almost 3000 to refresh my suspension on a 900$ car.

    You don't need new gc's for stiffer springs...why not just find some used springs for the GCs in the rates you want and drop some koni yellows in them?

      I still need camber plates and and shock mounts wich would run me 500 then struts and new springs I'm looking at another 800. I'm getting the bc's already welded to hubs from another member here for 700. Id like to go the "proper" route but at this time it's not in the budget.

          Those look good. How are the cylinders paired?

                  I was looking at it on my phone. Looked like it might have had the opposing cylinders paired; (1&6, 2&5, 3&4). Nice header either way!

                        ^ Yup this is actually my second header from them. I sold the first one because I was planning on going 24v but, since I've reverting back to just building an M20. Solid product, can't wait to get them ceramic coated and installed. I got them with the mid pipe as well so , no cat. Now I just need to buy my Remus Cat back and my exhaust is finished.

                          Pretty sure I'm going to order Lemforder control arms, tie rods, etc. for my suspension refresh. Does anybody have any experience with the Meyle HD line? It's a little cheaper but I want whatever is going to last the longest.

                            Seth - the Lem's seemed to last a bit longer in my previous suspension.
