Aside from a tuneup, I have just basically driven it. At first I hadn't decided if I was going to keep it, based on the miles, and wanting to see how it was holding up. But after several month, I have found it is a great useful car that makes a great parts hauler, and gives the Formula a bit more garage time. My other car is starting to ride the edge of what can be considered a fun daily driver.
Anyways, this weekend, I adjusted the preload and raised the suspension as high as it will safely adjust. On both the front and the back, it is all the way on the lowest setting before. I got the better part of two additional inches of clearance.
I also switched to a set of 185/80-13 tires, to replace the 7-8 year old rubber on the car. The car new sits MUCH higher. I eyballed in a bit of camber adjustment for now, as raising it did change the geomerty by quite a bit. But for some cheap easy work, the car is now much more off road capable.
Next week, I'm taking it up camping in the Collegiate Peaks, which should be my first real off road experience. Should be fun times...
