Oh dont worry, it will be perfect before she gets it.

I dont think that a couple items like springs and a needing a wheel qualifies it as a piece of ****************. Already had a shop look over all the suspension and the springs were the only thing suspect.

Just wait till you see the finished product in a couple weeks and let me know if you still think its a piece of ****************.

BTW, drives perfect and rides amazing till 60-70 mph, probably because of the alignment so far out due to being so low.

Update, everything checked out ok except for one of the rear struts was busted and leaking. So while I am getting all 4 factory springs replaced throwing 2 new struts on the rear, getting an alignment, and should take care of the symptoms and ride like new again soon!

Yup, now is the time since you have to remove them to replace the springs...
