    If you are a supporting vendor I think all you have to do is post a new thread with the title "group buy" in it. Not entirely sure though...

    is it possible to retain stock ride height with this setup? i run ground controls (custom setup not hack-a-strut) on my WRX and i can get very close to stock ride height with that setup which i need due to some dirt roads i drive on. ground control struts have a collar that you can adjust ride height with.

    A half inch more for me and im happy. Not looking for a tuck but for a flush look maybe 1 finger gap. But im afraid my 205 45 series will rub. Maybe if i push the wheels out more with spacers? What you think Joe?

    I agree -- the members asked you to create this. I don't see a problem continuing the discussion here while we sort it out.

    I'd go with stock ride height too. I may have missed it, but I posed a similar question related to effective travel.

    Are the inverted shock bodies and remote reservoirs available too? Do we have the room for this?

    That reminds me to ask the SOCAL group -- anyone want to have an "installation party"? It sounds like we can knock out the coil-over sets in a couple hours each. I don't have power tools, but I have the space and necessary tools. My old favorite alignment shop is gone. Anyone have a local recommendation?

    I would avoid an installation party...I want whoever is installing my suspension to focus and concentrate to make sure everything is put back correctly.

    This is really the perfect kind of group gathering, it's easy work and fun to hang out. Build camaraderie and save a few bucks What could go wrong? :) Seriously, it's a comfort level thing, and a piece of cake with a little experience under your belt. If I had more time, I'd do all the work on my car, every time. About the only thing I won't tackle is welding! When the zombies come, sure, but not until then!

    We can even eyeball and measure the alignment good enough to get to the shop. This, a brake upgrade, exhaust, cold air intake, and similar are perfect candidates.

    Right, I'm wondering the same thing. We need to know who's committed to being in, what they want, and what our final price will be.

    Since I suggested it, I'll start a thread. If a moderator wants it somewhere else, please let me know.

    The install is very straight forward - actually almost too easy. Just remember not to go crazy with the camber. Although the BCs dont have camber plates (no room exists under the strut mount), the upright attachment is slotted and you can get over -2.5. Way too much for the street. Use the settings I posted on the first page and the hints/tips.

    Keep in mind the BCs allow for much wider wheels and tires since they dont extend as far outboard as the stock struts/spring perches. So your concern about rubbing wont even be a problem. There is probably enough room to run 17x9s if you wanted. << dont quote me.

    Tomorrow I hit the track with these.

    Lets start a list - who is in?
