    Running tap water is still better than running an antifreeze mix, I just do not like the rust and scale it causes, especially in a brand new motor. Stewart pumps are what we use, really good pieces....

    A lot of that "hike" in in springs and shocks and how the car is scaled. I had a car with 12 hole locations so it allowed a bunch of angles for my lowers and nothing ever made the car hike up more.

    I agree with Dave. On metric 4-link leading a trailing is something not to mess with unless there is a very influential factor that makes you need to. Leave all that stuff with 4-link and 3-link guys.
