Loool..
It will indeed run like a new car! I had recently changed my front Sway bars and Rear trailing arms and the car feels much more solid!

I guess this cost Santa about $2k ?

Given the printing on the boxes it looks like this is for right hand drive vehicles.

I was standing on the other side of the boxes when I took the picture.

Looks like a great project! I've done lots of suspension stuff on my 2000, just not all at once...pretty straightforward though. Enjoy!!

What brand of lower control arms (Coffin Arms) did you go with?
TRW seems to not be available anymore.
I see the front control arms are the hard Bushing, why not the rear trailing arms?

I have done most of my front (Took 6 months to find TRW lower control arms) I do need to do the rear now.

Maybe you can hire some elves in the off season to give you a hand

So... kind of like a mirror selfie of your sexy parts, rather than your sexy parts.

I see you went with the EPS front track arms. I heard some not so good things about them. What made you decide on them?
