    I seem to remember cross threading on my car and in lbs being tightened to ft lbs on another.

    New suspension came in. And then I decided after the track day I just went to and getting the gc’s on in a couple weeks I’d add to my to do list so I ordered these tonight.

    After I save some more race car funds I’ll move forward on getting the exhaust manifold and ewg added and retuned

    I should have posted these earlier. Took the car out for seat time and was definitely limited by the tires. Guess I’ll get my 595 rs-rr’s mounted soon

    Can't wait to see the track time progression as you get the suspension and tires installed and setup. Are you going to do everything at once or 1 at a time?

    Where did you find the gen2 AntiLift Kit? I was under the impression that whiteline stopped making them.

    He has a very persuasive mouth. He convinced them to start making it again.

    I'm pretty sure they still have it, but they moved everything to a single sku for all Speeds whether Juan or Pu.

    I got it through rpm after looking at white lines website they list under the part number that it fits the pu. We’ll see someone pm’d me and said they had trouble installing it. I hope I don’t run into issues.

    I know whiteline made one for the gen2, but I know they stopped for a little while.

    Anyway... the reason I ask is that I have a set of control arms with a gen1 kit (not installed yet) and I have a gen2. The bushing that mounts to the subframe is 1.5" tall (gen1 subframe is 1.5" thick at the control arm mount), while the gen2 subframe is 2" thick. (My measurements could be off, I'm going off of my memory.)

    A die grinder will fix it, I just decided to lower it on my priority list for now. Not sure if there are any other mounting differences, but the height difference in the subframe is due to the FSB mount change from stand alone straps to the control arm bolts.

    Not sure if they revised it, or decided to include spacers or something.

    I'm going to tackle that project in a month or so. I will keep you informed if I get to it first.

    Forgive my grammar, I had a long day at work.

    All good, I’ll be doing the install hopefully in the next week or two. I’ll report back what I find
