Funny. The prokit/Koni yellow are too hard for me too! Sometimes the dumps gets on my nerves, thus I might go to 17" summer rims this year (will see, economic down turn and all, and those falken 417 I have on there only had one summer on them).

Johnny... what do you have your Koni's set too? Because to be honest I've been in other Koni cars and while they are firm... they weren't that stiff.

Could it be your wheels as well?

Yup, wheel size does play a big part in ride quality. With my setup (pro-kit + koni's on full soft + trd yellow sways + 19's) the ride is fairly smooth until I hit a rough road... then it can get scary!

When I drove my car to storage with the stock 17's I was amazed with how smooth it road.

BTW, nice list of plans!

Koni yellow are on full soft, and I'm on 17" oem for the winter @ 33 psi. Trust me, it's the prokits/Koni's.

weird. Prokits w/ Koni on full soft should be the same as stock. Same spring rate. virtually the same dampening rates at full soft..... weird.

Nice List redline.gt

I like the carbon pillars idea!!

Use MOTUL!

Wouldn't it be funny if Johnny has been driving around all this time with his shocks cranked to full stiff?

That would only be true if one direction is full stiff, and the other direction is full stiff stiffer.

Nice list of plans. Hope you will be able to get through them all!

My plans are minor compared to your list.

1) JDM window visors (on order)

2) Maybe IS-F tail lights

2) CDD Delete via Figs
3) Fix newly acquired dent on hood or replace with CF hood.
4) Install Front&Rear OBX clear corners
Maybe:
5) Replace swaybar endlinks, if needed
6) New summer tires (Dunlop Direzza Z1 Starspecs)
