    OK, just found out that there was a FB post about things being delayed for a day, etc.

    Holy cow. Cone station 2 might not be picking up many cones, but they sure will be *involved*.

    So I’ve got it pretty much figured out that the convex washer on the bottom is the wrong one, so I’ve ordered both top and bottom washers as well as new nuts. The only thing I’m unsure of is the bump-stop being longer that what was on there. The rear suspension does seem to sit a bit lower than stock, so maybe what was there is harder rubber but shorter to allow for more shock travel before hitting the stop?

    I made them public in my feed. Honestly, FB makes me feel really old.

    Anyway, I figured out that the new dust tube “snaps” onto the new bump stops. In the process, I had to take the shocks out again. So I’ll be ordering new mounting nuts, and while I’m in there, I might as well get the proper washer for the top. At least I can do that with everything still installed.

    It seems the lower cupped washer really is just a free floating “cap” for the bump-stop. The RSM sits directly on the lip of the shock rod. I’m getting pretty good at taking the shocks in and out.

    Well, I’m an image failure it seems. They are on my Facebook timeline. Hopefully the curious can see them.

    Hrm… the image tags aren’t fully working. Let me try again. Here is the new setup:

    Hrm… I hadn’t thought about going up to 245. My car may be sitting a little bit lower (I think its got some Dinan suspension bits on it); do you have any issue with rubbing? I’m also curious about the taller sidewall. I’m really new to autox so I’m sure I don’t have things set up very well, but I’ve been having trouble keeping the fronts from rolling too far onto their sides (those little wear triangles are gone). At the last event, I had them up to 44lbs, which seems kind of nutty to me. Toyo Proxes R1R’s come in 245/35, but I haven’t heard enough good things about them to warrant choosing them over the Falken RT615K+. And just to make things extra complicated, if I do consider 245/40, that size includes Michelin Pilot Super Sports (which have much better wet handling). So… very curious about sidewall height!

    Thanks for the thoughts on the SSpecs. The Falken RT615K+ seem to be pretty well liked, and $50/tire cheaper. Any idea if either of these tires would be worse than the Yokohama SDrives I have for wet weather? Or have I been nuts all along driving in the rain with the SDrives…?

    If Dave’s ride falls through for any reason, consider me a backup.
