    Hey all. I will be returning my car back to stock suspension from my FK Silverline X coils. I need to make sure I have all my stock components before I bring it to the shop.

    Give me your opinions on these tire sizes

    Okay so Im coming from some cheap 205/40/18 tires that almost ruined my brand new rims when they leaked from 37 PSI to 10 PSI over night. Im on an 18x8.5 VB3s from VMR So now I need new tires, and Im not sure about sticking with a 205/40 anymore unless it was the cheapness of the tires that...

    Cleaning up a bit of surface rust

    How can I clean off the thin layer of rust on my suspension components such as threaded struts and swaybar endlinks? I wanted to sell my coils that I have just taken off and want to shine them up. Its only light rust and probably mostly dirt.

    A bolt

    My heatshield that came with my EvoMS intake is pissing me off. The stock grommits with the threads at the bottom come loose, even when I used a nut at the bottom. They actually fell out, and I was able to get the heatshield before it fell down deeper into the bay. What (size) bolts can I use to...

    Before I put on my new coils....

    Before I put on my new coils I need to know what this noise is. I currently run K-Sports and a lot of us know that they do make certain noises due to certain design flaws. I understand this and I have read about them. The noise that I am wondering about is something I have not seen discussed...

    Tire pressure Sensor Q

    Are the stock sensor pre-set for stock tire pressure? I bought my car with 17 denvers on 225/45 tires, upgraded to 18x8 RS4 reps on 225/40 tires and used the same sensors no problem (because the tire pressures werent too off I guess) Next week I will be putting on some 18x8.5 CSL reps on...
