    then we took it to a shop to have them ACTUAL alignment, and replace the inner tie rods, the next day. then one day later: i was on the track, seeing how much better it was. (but the 2 painter's tape stripes on the fender may have been the reason it was better... who knows? :P )

    and it was a LOT better. i am talking night and day. it took all day for me realize just how much more i could push out of the car. from the first run (me driving how i did before the upgrades) to the last run i cut 8 seconds off.... because i realized i didn't actually have to slow down for some of the turns, and could just power through them.

    this year i plan to do the front swaybar, and get some adjustable toe bars for the year (my car is toeing in too much in the rear, thus making it hard to get the rear to rotate like i want.)

    well, D2's are not top of the line... nut neither is an eclipse/stratus. i did not preload, but i keep thinking about it. adjustments are pretty simple, though.

    on installation... it was 3 hours, but i also did a lot more work (it was fast repair after an accident, before a race.) it was just me and my best friend... in a driveway. 2 jacks, 4 jackstands (so we could work at the same time), some wrenches... and an air compressor with an impact hammer (just makes it easier). oh, and an anglegrinder (for rusted parts) and the stock catback (GREAT breaker bar :) ).

    on that day we:
    removed the old suspension
    installed, and leveled the D2's
    upgraded the rear swaybar (to an ST)
    upgraded the swaybar endlinks (all 4) (to moogs)
    replaced the outer tie rods (with moogs... i like moog parts)
    replaced the fender
    replaced the wheelwell
    realigned the hood and a headlight
    duct taped my front bumper back together
    and did a pathetic "eyeballing" alignment
