    I wish our coilover kits put the springs over the rear shocks instead of maintaining the stock, separate position for the springs. I guess it's a clearance issue.

    It would make calculations easier, and strange things happen with the rear motion ratio and the springs.

    Overall, not a big deal.

    Maybe if you ask really nicely. And send nudes. Nudes always help.

    A lot of the images are still in photofuckers here I believe: http://s64.photobucket.com/user/phate1985/library/phate MS6/Suspension?sort=3&page=1

    I'm able to grab the images through some magic (ctrl+shift+c, find the real image link, wget it to my desktop... ok, so not really magic). I was planning to go through the posts here from @phate and try to correlate the images I found to the post, and then upload the images here. Not sure if that's effective though. I could maybe grab a list, upload them to the forum, and a moderator could just change the links?

    This is one of the more useful posts I've read.

    Sorry guys. I've been meaning to do this, but have been going full bore getting the car ready for the season. I should have time to upload everything to the MSO server in the next couple weeks and add the pics back in.

    Awesome read. Once third car is in my driveway, I am going to start diving down this rabbit hole.
