A week ago, I took a day and did the suspension kit install. This is the Bilstein spring and shock package. Also installed braided steel brake lines.
The springs are definately stiffer. I just guessed on ride height and may have gone to low in the rear as I was hitting the bump stops on every ripple in the road. But huge difference in handling. Since this car is destined for the race track, I don't really care about the comfort of a soft ride.
The kit installed easily without any real hassels.
I also installed the Goodridge brake line kit. Minor fitment problems with the lower end of both rear lines. Nothing a couple minutes with a die grinder cound not fix.
Last Monday, I removed the AC assembly from under the hood, and installed the AC delete kit. Typical quick disconnect hoses, no surprises there. Removal of the condensor was a bit of a pain. The entire front end is held on by 6 bolts and a bunch of clips. Kinda like a jigsaw puzzle, with the last piece bolted in.
Saturday the interior came out. Up to removing the dash, everything was straight forward. Just like the bumper, everything clipped together with just a couple attaching screws.
The dash was a real pain. There are several hidden bolts, like the radio bolt. 2 bolts are under the hood coming into the car and 2 are from the drivers door jam.
Here are a handfull of pix. More pix will be posted to mz2speed.com
