When I was not as low both front and rear ride great.

Now I am all the way down in the front and it is still smooth because our suspension allows full travel still, but the rear sucks because we do not have double wishbone and there is limited travel. So its pretty uncomfortable. I am going to raise it about 15mm next and see how it feels.

boomplustoys.net

their service is horrible though. Never answer phones or emails I am still trying to get in contact with them.

they said it would take 4-8 weeks to get to Canada then ship it so it should be time soon.

will update if they actually end up responding.

Once the wheel is off I followed https://youtu.be/6PPfqub7ZuE?t=644 to complete the task. Actually if you watch the whole video, it'll give you an idea of the whole process.

A few of you guys have installed steering wheels, and I believe another installed a wheel stitch on wrap

Has anyone had any gauge cluster lights light up .... afterwards?

I picked up the same wheel as bjosuesr/kitkat201 and I performed the install, (thanks for the vid kitkat201) ... and afterwards, after a good 30 mins/30 miles of driving on the highway ... my TPMS light began to blink at me... shortly after that, the VSA light came on, and right after that, the Electric Power Steering icon came on .... a few moments after all of that, the TPMS light stopped blinking but remained on


At this point, I am thinking 1 of 5 outcomes:
-Maybe I did not re tighten my negative on the battery, hard enough?
-Maybe I did something wrong while re installing the wheel?
-Maybe the 5 yr old oem battery itself is ready to die?
-Maybe the shop that did my bumper/radiator/ac condenser screwed something up back there, and I am getting these 3 lights as a result?
-Maybe something unrelated went wrong, and the wheel/battery has nothing to do with it?

ECF - See a thread I had where I had a similar situation after trying to install a subwoofer. I detailed what I did to "fix" it, but not sure if this has any bearing on your situation since I also had the ABS light. Lights have been off since the last post in that thread.

Cool What kind of tint you get here?

Did you get just the dyed tint? Ceramic? Brand? Which percentages for which windows? Inquiring minds want to know!

Cool steering wheel cover

It wasn't today, more like a month ago. Got off amazon (
Amazon Amazon
) for $18. See reviews for my actual pics (which are otherwise buried in my computer's hard drive). I like how this blue matches the blue color screen lighting I'd selected in the dash settings.

Amazon Amazon


I'm still hoping to get tinting on my windows, but not sure I want to go with crystalline or ceramic, which brands, which percentage, etc. I will be posting on all that later.
