The KYBs didn't really keep up with the springs though..
Needed 1* camber bolts for the rear too.

just a word on air ride. I've had 7 cars on bags and 2 currently. I would not recomend them to any one that uses their car as a daily driver. Especialy in northern states where it gets cold, and your compressor and valves freeze up. They are very high maintenance and if not installed properly can leave your car incompasitated with no warning what so ever.

Our opinions may differ on the cause of the failure, but jr's3800 and I warned you about it in advance, and called the diagnosis after the failure.

I don't feel like arguing until the cows come home, but I can tell you from my experience with cars, those bags cost you your trans.
