    Coilovers Are pretty much maxed out and some spring tention let off just for a little extra drop will prob get helper spring just to keep tention but over all doesnt handle all that bad

    Im The same guys had planned on turboing it but just added extra appeal to me being NA with the style i wanted to go and with the 4:4 diff it can slide pretty good so happy enough to leave it as is being honest

    This is awesome... Where can I get that front bumper from? Im presuming it's a GTR rep made to fit GTST or is it a full GTR front end conversion?

    Ah really? I was under the impression I needed to change the bonnet, wings, bonnet catch, indicators and grille just to get the GTR bumper to fit

    Rear left half shaft is ready to kick the bucket booth is split and joint has become notchy so needs replacing

    Front bumper needs attention after a little off but not major
