    sorry my Engrish no gewd.:e

    anyway it's not going to work any lower, any lower will result in the followings:
    1) messed up front suspension geometry - lower control arm is at horizontal at rest - and that's after installing an RCA unit already
    2) the sway bar hits the blocks that space the engine down - even right now the sway bar endlinks need its spacer (between higher and lower sets of bushings) taken out to clear.
    3) excessive stress on the radius bars.

    it's in better shape now than if it's forced to slam...in fact I don't want to slam it: no more suspension travel = not happy daily driver.

    Haha, Narfy just hit the nail on the head. With any swap like that you're going to have problems. I also don't think adamturbo really appreciates the comments.

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    ebay reclinable bucket seats FTW? They are quite a lot lighter than the OEM seats but I need to gain all that weight back in my guts to fit snug in them.... they are now too loose for me.

    Comes together 500 dollars a pair including toyota brackets from overseas auto. I don't know why they come with toyota brackets they just do. Heads up for those who want to replace their either worn out or too heavy OE seats at a reasonable price.....
