Looks fantastic!
Thanks! Looks like we're going to have clear skies for the next week, so I might clean her up and take some more pics with other angles. I'll post them here if I do. There are a few more pics on my IG @alxsti too!

No those are the OE sports (and konis) with the TT pads.

The setup is great overall. Only complaint is it being firmer than I would like on crappy roads. Really can’t complain too much overall though. It checks a lot of boxes for me.

Just a ~1500 mile follow-up: It's been a couple months and the springs have been great. A couple weeks ago, I did notice a slight clunking noise from the front driver's side when coming out of my driveway and when going over slow speed bumpy turns or dips in the road. I thought it might have been my front swaybar bushings needing lube, but I took a shot and ordered the proper strut nut socket to try that first. I used that to properly torque that driver's side to 60 Nm and no more clunks! It was an easy fix and I should have used the proper tool to begin with (I "gently" used a battery powered impact driver originally :eek:).

If anyone is interested, this is the socket you need: Schwaben 21mm Strut Nut Socket

Can't you use an o2 sensor wrench for that?

Hey guys - Just threw on my winter wheels and wanted to post another update. It's been ~8 months since installing the springs. Since then, she's been driven daily in the city, taken on a couple road trips, and raced a few track days at NJMP and Watkins Glen. The springs have been performing very nicely and I've got no complaints! ? ?
