They will use a high quality paint that will prevent discoloration and sticking of break dust. If your in the Los...

    Roadster 3.0 Tires

    Smorgasbord, What Urethane bushings did you go with? Did it add any additional noise or vibration to the car? I added the RaceUprights for more negative camber and it dropped 9Lbs from the unsprung weight. (It requires modification of the brakes so not for the weary)
