  4. The plan is to get a set of coilovers and the JOM's seem to be a good deal but that will be next month as I have my brothers Stag do and wedding this month and i am the best man so funds tired up this month The pedal box was a PITA to get out and after figuring out if I took out the speedo so i could get more angle on the steering coloumn to remove it nearly 6 hours later i found out that they sent me the wrong one... argh.
