    Managed to get a bit of a deal on a set of BC Racing coilovers....so I should get them in the mail in a couple days. Also, got the Powerflex rear suspension poly bushings ordered. So it looks like I will be busy next week getting some parts installed!

Bad news was that the internals were scuffed up pretty bad from when it was installed in the previous vehicle. The seller worked with me and refunded me some money. Peloquin is waiting on parts and then replacing all the internal gears and bearings. So good news is that I will be getting essentially a brand new LSD for a couple hundred bucks cheaper than a new one. Good thing I had Peloquin check it out! Whew

    Good thinking getting it looked at first Derek.
    I'll be interested to know how much of a difference the LSD makes over stock. Since I've had the work done to the Leon it's a nightmare trying to get power down mid corner, that said the geometry is absolutely shot at the moment too so a good suspension set up would probably help a great deal!

    I can't wait to see the difference as well!!!

    Yeah, I have already swapped all the front suspension bushings for the poly versions and have seen great results! If you are going to be re-freshing the bushings anyways then u should look into the Whiteline Anti-lift kit and 034 Density line front strut mounts. They help to keep traction to the front tires and reduce wheel hop as well. Worn out struts also make it difficult to put the power down.
