Thanks again to Jon for the help and use of the garage for my suspension install. I just had my snows put on today and decided to take some pics of both upgrades at once.

Suspension: Koni coilovers rear: 2" (of thread - highest setting), front: 1.5" *winter mode* :D

Snows! Gislaved EuroFrost 2 directional snow tires:

looks good Charles.  I could have used your help on Thursday with my coil overs...I had the same problem we had on yours with adjusting the height.  It took me 2 hours to adjust just one corner.  The others were really easy, turned by hand, but one was just not moving...what a pain.

How do you like those snows?  I put some dolop graspic ds2's on mine, but they are kinda soft in the side wall, but I can't complain too much, they were dirt cheap.

those Dunlops are exactly what i had on my infiniti - they were great in the snow and ice but got a little shaky on grooved pavement. I think i paid $55 a corner for mine, so yeah, can't complain about the price!!

These Gislaveds seem good so far on dry pavement - maybe i'll get to try them out in some white stuff sometime soon...
