Everyone has their price. 🙄
Joking aside, Pierce bracing arrived today. Haven’t had a chance to inspect it yet, but it was packed well. I got them used so we will see.

More photos coming soon.

Also, I’m now team dizzytuned. I’ll give an update once the time comes, and I have the tune.

Figured I’ll ride the lightning a bit on stock until I can get some funds to go big.

Rear torsion bar in. Went in a bit smoothly. Almost loose like. Even had a rubber mallet I was waiting to use. Wondering if the ends are a wear item as I bought it used? They don’t seem as thick as the photos.... 2091DA91-30B4-4414-8F41-17163883D747.jpeg

Rear trunk brAce is in. Driver side was a pain to get loose. Pretty sure I cross threaded it taking it out and putting it in. Oh well. It’s in there tight anyway.
Next up is the strut bar and 4 point brace. E5356629-28F1-4E23-8F39-85854B983C0F.jpeg

Strut bar is in. Was a bit bent as I got it used, but the mounting points were mailable enough that it went right on. Torque wrench broke have way through the install, so some of those bolts are in pretty tight. Whoops.
Oh well, I am not sure that it made a huge difference or not. I want to say the front does not rock side to side too much now, but I’m not convinced. I think the 4 point brace will make the biggest difference.

Pierce Motorsports 4-point is in. Installation was a bit of a hassle. The bar was bent I think slightly causing an alignment issue. I could get 2 bolts to line up at a time. After several hours with ratchet straps to get the bar where I needed it was in.
I think I may have cross threaded the rear bolt on the passenger side though. Who knows. It went in anyway and I torqued it to the 46lbs Whoosh recommended. 113k miles and several winters do not do any favors when it comes to rusting.
I am seriously reconsidering my desire to replace the downpipe and exhaust after seeing the condition they are in.

I am unclear what my next steps will be. I think perhaps rims and tires. Not sure.

Which projectors did you end up going with?
I went with Mini H1. The D2S would have been a tight fit back in the housing and in the engine bay. These fit great. I could have extended them a hair more towards the engine bay, but they function great and are leaps and bounds better than the poor excuse for headlights we had before.
