Borrowed some coil spring compressors this afternoon. Chop chop!

While I have no ABA testing for lowering the Firefly, just comparing trip-by-trip results showed it made a big difference in combination with the air dam.

While the Flea got purpose made race car springs, I'm hoping to keep the Metro just a little higher and softer.
