Yup. To late for this time. All futur shipments will b sent there. I honestly thought it would b best if I just paid more to have it shipped directly to the garage.

It's unfortunate the eBay seller opted to use the Global Shipping Program... Too bad it'll be late.

Did you get the input bearing and sleeve from Rodney Dickman?

1) mans trans(eBay) says he has no choice in the shipping, eBay forces him to do what happened to me.
2) yup Rodney's dickmans parts arrived yesterday at 4 pm.

Unless Ebay is the drop shipping service provider, the seller is obligated to designate the carrier of choice.

That's about as close as one would want to be when it comes to getting ready on time.

Over the last 18 months.
Purchased group (Kimmitt) eibach and Addco sway bar.

Had them powder coated red, today they are getting installed.
The newer springs appear to b 1/2" plus higher.

Measured the car b4 the swap, the car was 1/4" lower on the drivers side compared to passengers side.

Also installed my brand spanking new rad juice a wind shield washer resevoirs.

Also installed those little plastic parts that go between the inside upper door grab handle and the panel. Old ones cracked to pieces.

Alignment to b done later this week.

I experienced the same thing... the Eibach's appear to be taller than the FE7 springs but the car height ends about the same IIRC... I never did measure exactly. FE7 appears to be a linear spring vs the eibach which is progressive so the first few coils take on the load and level the car to the same point but under compression they will get stiffer... May handle a bit better in the end.
