I loved doing this stuff until AEM left me without my car for 2 weeks with no parts. I might warm back up to this but would appreciate you moving here (quickly) so it doesn't always have to be my car. ;-p

It will also be good to have a Forte "buddie" in the area.

I'll be somewhere in the area of Pendleton (where I'll be stationed). It sounds like there is alot of companies in that area that are looking to develop parts for the Forte. Really excited!

I'll look you up when I get down there.

Orders got bumped, so I'll be in California by June. If you haven't found a vehicle by then, I'm game!

Thats Great!

Tein in Korea had released DKF16-Q1746-R for Forte. I'm curious if Tein US would be the same.

well i picked up my car today. they said they got all the dimensions and everything they need. but its gonna take like 3 - 4 months til they get everything developed for me to go back so they can test it.

only downfall i have right now, is something in my suspension is really messed up. its making a very bad clunking noise as i drive and turn. i dont wanna say its teins fault, but they were the only ones that worked on my suspension. no big deal tho. the car is still bone stock so imma just take it into the dealer on monday and have them look at it. lets hope its nothing major, and lets hope nothing happens til i get there.

im sure it couldnt be your axle. maybe the upper strut mount not tightened properly.

since its still all stock nothing should be stressed, like on my jetta its so low the frame is sitting on the axle ha so it clunks..
