    Be gone, heathen. She's wonderful

    I have always thought that metal has soul. It's cheesy and retarded but how else would you explain that four previous cars I tried to sell would randomly not open their bonnet when customers would come inspect them? Every. Damn. Time.

    I never thought of myself as a petrolhead, but I always developed a deep connection with the vehicle driven. Be it a rental or mine to own, it tends to become an intimate relationship. You come to know their limits and in turn to explore yours, you feel the bumps in the road and when the tires want to lose traction just as well as you feel your lover's coffee preferences and hand squeezes during sex.

    So excuse is for naming our cars or pampering them. It isn't antromorphising iron, just developing a connection. I'm not naming my refrigerator or washing machine, just my car

    Gave HER an oil change today, and jacked HEEEEERRR up about three quarter of an inch on all 4 corners. If you have a look at the threads of the coils they where sitting at 2.5 turns from the bottom before I touched em'.

    And suddenly I dont hit the roof when I hit a pothole... It's amazing what 2.5cm of ride eight does. I can feel the suspension working now it's great!

    next thing I need to do is the V spring for the rear brake. I need to find a mazda dealer with that part in stock cause jim ellis only ship to canada on an order of over 100$ and the springs are 3$ a piece....

    They look like tein super street. Hate that design of coilover. No adjustable lower bracket at the hub (or lowere a-arm in your case). When you drop the ride height you reduce the bump travel end up riding the bumpstops
    and the bumpstops on cheap coilovers are never matched to the spring / progressive and you just bounce around.

    To do it properly you need a coilover with adjustment on the lower bracket. Then you can remove the spring from the coilover, reasemble the mount and refit the wheel. Then you jack the wheel up
    until the top of the shock hits the bumpstop before the wheel comes in to contact with the inner arch. That sets your bump travel. Mark it off. Re-assemble the coilover with spring, adjust the lower
    bracket by the amount you wish to lower the ride height. Refit the wheel. Test drive. Let it settle. Readjust if need be. Then corner weight. Then geometry. You can't just bolt these fuckers on and hope the car will handle.

    Good call on the tein super sports, that's what they are supposed to be. The previous owner bought em' from a JDM shop used with unknown miles in montréal used and then promptly lowered it as much as he possibly could making the ride overly harsh.

    well I set them up to .85 inch from the lowermost thread at the bottom of the adjustment screw on all corners. They where 2 threads from the bottom and obviously the suspension had something like .3 of a inch of travel as it was set up. The back left was lower by about half a turn than the back right. Right now it rides much better, I obviously didnt do anything very complicated except rise it up but it makes it much more civilized around town. I ain't tracking the thing aniway, for the moment it'll be more than enough. eventually i'll probably put a nice set of coils on it and fuck around with the settings but I'll drop 1k$ on something else first before going for that.

    I've owned a few SAAB's and the worst thing that ever happened to that brand was being bought by GM. They went from being well built with decent reliability to cars designed by accountants but at least decently screwed together. It would have been better if the brand died in the 90's tbh.

    That said, my chipped 00 9-3 was a bundle of fun. Proper fun car with way too much HP for the chassis and it's still running in some dark woods in Småland with 190k kilometers behind it.

    I'll say this for SAAB's though, there still isn't an ACC on the market that handles cold weather climate as well as the old SAAB units. No need to fiddle with electric heating, directing air towards the windscreen in a timely manner, that stuff just _worked_.

    More recent Saabs use a lot of Opel/Vauxhall parts. They're solid cars, overengineered to last, albeit "using" the Opel platforms they managed to come up with completely different cars.
