Continuing the blue/yellow, plain white box saga...



What could possibly be inside???



Why it's a 3" -> 2x2" custom exhaust piece by who else?



Now this is a smooth transition Johann....




Other box was from Sweden...



Scott, I know the TME springs only drop about a 1/2", but this front spring seems awful sturdy. I'm a little concerned about the ride quality. Also, do you know when they are going to send the second one?

Almost have a complete set, ready for Friday.



Going to be spending Friday with my Volvo dealer. Full day scheduled.

Denso Iridium spark plugs
TME front/rear springs
22mm rear sway bar, IPD polyurethane grommets, mounting kit
4 wheel alignment, sum calibration
Takspeed stainless steel brakelines
Takspeed titanium shims
Takspeed aluminum pedals
ATE super blue race fluid
Hawk HPS pads
Powerflex strut brace pre-tensioner
Burns Stainless center collector exhaust piece
New custom CAI intake

You do have a complete set, but then I think you were kidding.

Yeah, you're kidding, right? You know . . . both front springs were merged together for shipping purposes and all . . . ?

You can't tell what a spring is like, let alone its spring rate, just by feel outside a car. The springs are only springs in your hand; you'll find out what they are REALLY like when you have them installed. Don't assume by feel; that one spring is stiffer than another, get them installed!!!

I'm getting mine installed on Thur. and will ride them for a few weeks + one track day, before I render an opinion.

Kevin,

I think he was referring to the two intermingled front springs that looked like one in the picture...he was kidding (I hope
).

Wow, having a degree in Psychology, always fascinating to see people's responses to self-depricating humor. Able to see who gets the joke, and even scarier, who has a very low opinion of your intelligence.

If you were really paying attention, you would notice the difference between the group pic of the springs and the single pic of the "double re-inforced spring". (I cut the tabs of the tie strings off to make it a better pic).

Yeah, I just think you're incredibly stupid.

LOL

RKelly, I'm TOTALLY kidding. I got the self-depricating humor . . . it's just that sometimes you can't be completely sure since some subtleties don't translate via internet.

When are you going to get them installed?

Nothing but
for you as well.

If you look, there is one person who responded to your joke, seemed to indicate that he didn't think I knew the difference.
