so reading a little more about the terminology right now technically that is preloading what they are describing. I would call it more along the lines of ride height fine tuning since you aren't doing anything to adjust the load on that spring, it maintains it's compression ratio no matter what. I dunno, toMAYto = toMAto

Yeah, that makes a lot more sense. Guess I screwed up by just lowering the shock and not touching the spring at all. The rear feels like shit/bouncy after every little dip/bump in the road.

Going to add a second muffler to my car, because people seem to be taking it personally when I pass them. Also, people are always trying to race me and my car is slow as shit. lol

I would assume he's opting for a resonator, not literally a second muffler

Or, install a Y pipe and have left and right mufflers

Naw, I had my system done, and the dual pipes are too close to each other to put a resonator in each pipe. Im adding an 11 inch dual in and out muffler.
