Did you follow these?
If not and if you don’t mind can you let me know your measurements for A,B,C,D for front and rear?

No don't think so. I literally just installed it and set it up..

It's going to be a while before I have the car up on the hoist again with the wheels off to be able to get the measurements.

Going to be replacing the rear brakes in a month or two.

So for me I have about 1 inch gap left for drop in the rear.

The fronts I have a 1 inch gap between the thread spacing from the preload perch to the height adjustment perch

Little bit of track prep was done a week ago.

Replaced the rear brake pads and rotors with Stoptech slotted rotors and hawk performance 5.0 street pads.

Swapped in Hawk DTC 70 front pads thanks to @evildoer_fk7 for lending me his as it was a last minute change up.

Flushed with Motul RBF600

Raised vehicle slightly

Overall car felt great on track, have a bit of tweaking to do before next event. But was an awesome day out. Track pics coming soon.

Also installed my 4 bar map sensors from @[email protected] (Waiting to go in for a custom tune)

All parts can be acquired through us at @Unity Performance installation also available if you are local. Send us a DM for inquires!

Here is a small photo dump of the last track session. It was the first time the Si was put on track to see how everything worked.

Everything was great just found that the tires weren't enough so that'll be the next change. ...now trying to decide which setup and size to go with haha!.

Overall had an amazing time at the event. Our @Unity Performance CTR is being featured and details of that will be coming out in a few weeks.! Look out for that.

The @[email protected] BBK did amazing! We swapped out the original pads to Hawk DTC 70 and man it stopped aggressively rear end bias was a little off so going to do some more digging to improve that. Or maybe do a less aggressive pad in the front to compensate for the rear as well. We shall see.

Along with all the chassis bracing from Ultra Racing played a big roll on reducing body roll! Car felt solid!

Who makes that front grill and did it come with the H emblem? This perfect to clean up the front.

Is there any benefit to the control arms themselves vs just using the ball joints and ALK? Or is it just for ease of install with not needing a press etc.?

It does come with new compliance bushings pressecd in already compared to the oem bushings in the stock arm. Also the install is a lot smoother as you don't have to remove the old bushings.

But if you already have the ALK and the Balljoint then you don't need the arm.

Bushing on my HB physically look different, was liquid filled, and it will fail eventually. Glad I changed out with Whiteline ALK.

I am surprise to see your front sway bar still connected to OEM link. I have stock front sway but connects to Whiteline's link and improvement is very noticeable and supportive even compliments nicely with both Whiteline's 22/26 mm RSB. I feel Whiteline front link and OEM sway bar combo is good enough for my use.

How's the bushings for you? Is it a really noticable change when driving? Mainly asking about the ALK since the balljoints just give more camber

I had the whiteline links as well but I ran into some issue where I would get constant squeaking so I swapped back to oem but noise still there. Realized my sway bar was shifting to the right so I ended up getting the swaybar locks so it stays in place.

Haven't gotten around to swapping back yet.

Actually the balljoint does more than add camber to the lower half. The overall steering feel is tighter/heavier and feels more direct and returns faster.

The alk definitely is noticeable and I feel it completed my front end. Feels more planted and solid around corners.

Glad it does more and makes it tighter. Def another thing to do now
