Not the greatest pic but i just got my D2 coilovers installed, still kinda adjusting everything since teh rears seem to have settled lower then the fronts. Also i got some pretty good rear camber and toe that i have to address but this is how shes sitting now!! I will be putting my new clutch and flywheel in soon!! WHOOT also ill be fixing the horrible rim condition. More pics to come.

yep that's pretty low lol, good job man. I'd definitely recommend an alignment asap though, could cause premature wear of your tires and suspension components.

Haha so true, the fronts are in good order i had the sheet of paper, idk where it is now. Probably at The Piles house with my motor mount. Anyway the rear camber is -2.35 degrees:wow: and about a half of degree on toe! So the rears pretty angled wheels. Pile thinks the coilovers could be on backwards, never heard of it but im down to try and swap the rears, if not im getting Protege lateral bars with King 6 fab adapters for my sway bar. Then back for an alingment because the front sits to high rit now anyway, drop that a tad and should be all down and aligned soon.

are the fronts/rears even interchangeable? wasn't aware they'd even bolt in

no no, i mean the rears are on teh wrong side. i dont know if tahts even possible but its very little work since my trunk hasnt been put back togather. And i know, i just bought these Falken Ziex 512s and im not trying to kill them

ahhh, gotcha. Ya they would be able to change left to right, I BELIEVE the only different should be the flex line tab, but I could be mistaken!

You should be able to adjust your toe tho on a rack, the back has a few ways to adjust all that crap out, OEM cam bolts, ect.

Yea they're seized tho....but i do believe your right, i think the only diffterence is the tab. But its worth a try! But like i said if this doesnt work im gettin the Protege adjustable lateral bars. But im thinkin with those if i fix the toe and the camber that its goign to suck in my wheel...

Well you can fix the camber with some crash bolts if it really bothers you that much...bring it to around -1.5 degrees or so, it seems tolerable on the streets. It'll only bring the top of your wheel a wee bit closer to the fender lip lol.

Never knew about the Protege rear adjustable arm swap, pretty neat!
