The superior suspension setup consisting of Koni Yellows with Eibach springs were taken out of the Integrale Evo a couple nights ago, from the car to it’s final resting place, the trash bin. For it’s replacement the Evo was given a brand new set of custom made 24-way adjustable bound and rebound Leda coilovers paired to some Eibach springs.
Because spending money on expensive pretty lug nuts are a must, extended studs were installed to the front and rear hubs, replacing the traditional European concept of using wheel bolts.
A bunch of new parts came in over the weekend which included a complete new set of headlights with bezel.
Group A side mirrors… they are completely useless if you are wondering, they are there just because they look so damn good!
Momo steering wheel which was gifted by a dear friend.
Derlin ball shift knob, boot and bezel.
Lastly for this show and tell, Speedline Corse Montecarlo magnesium wheels.
Shortly after the Evo arrived, there was always this question of why does this car not stop as it should. Last night the calipers were taken apart for a deep clean and service, not so surprised to see one of the rears were seized, luckily it was able to be saved. The lack of braking performance was also caused by three of the four lines being semi to completely clogged, luckily there was already a set of Goodridge stainless brake lines here. The Endless pads that went into the car earlier this year were chucked in place for Ferodo DS2500s, Brembo sport slotted rotors were also installed.
