Thanks, guys, for the extra perspective on the rear spring issue! W/o that, I really had no idea how much credence that explanation deserved.

Interesting theory...I'll have to check that out further!

On the rear spring, I was told that it is the natural torque reaction of the car when launching hard. The car tends to push down harder on...

Getting my suspension back "on-track"...questions?

It's really bugging me lately, so I want to start planning on how to get it back into shape w/o overkill measures or undue cost.

Wouldn't that be weird if there was a HAL in your car that was waiting for the right opportunity to execute you with an IED airbag?

May want to give the throttle just a little blip when orchestrating a 3-2. It will mesh the engine load change better. Got to remember, 2nd on the 8-spd is not that far off from being numerically...

I expect that, as well, which brings me to my other point...this is absolutely ridiculous that we will be drawn into the dealer to replace *each* airbag in the car one at a time!

So this is for real?...the car has to be brought in a *second* time to replace the passenger side airbag, now?

I think the air return ducts are under the seats? I spray under there, too, when I do the powerflush with lysol procedure. ;)

The more dust you have out there on the roads (hot, dry stretches in the weather and "lesser-urban" environments), the more is going to accumulate on the rear bodywork via static charge. That's just...

Niiice!!! Since you got the taller sidewall on the drive wheels, can you speak to any benefits toward wheel hop behavior?

Look at the charts...it's not hurting for rw torque, at all. That's the proper way to put the short gearing in that 8-spd to work! ;)
