    I'm running the Comp Cam Mustang springs, and I'm getting loud valve train noise. It seems as if the springs are too stiff, and over taking the hydraulic lifters on the intake side of the rockers..... anyone else have this experience?

  6. 4G Eclipse GS/SE Specific
    So since I have owned my 4g eclipse for the past 3 or so months, the shifter has been stiff and giving my a weird sort of issue. When you go and sit in the car in the morning, the shifter will be "Normal" and return back to center, still relatively stiff but it does return to center. After...

    I have Tein H Techs. They lowered the car like 2 inches which was perfect for me. My issue is the ride quality which is horrid. They are stiff and I feel every crack which I expected but what I didnt expect was the bounce. I figured the spring rate was too high for the stock struts. I have been...
