A few weeks ago I installed a 3" exhaust on and mocking it up. When I jacked up one side of the car to get a jack stand in there I notice the other tire was off the ground.

Now I know why this car rides on a rail through the twisties !

No frame connectors and everything looks stock, just new shocks but no kicker shocks.

I like to follow everything happening on the site.
I'm sorry for probably a stupid question, but what am I seeing? Why is this not right? I guess i get that the one wheel should stay on the ground to an extent...

Rob, no stupid questions here, we all try to educate each other. Usually when you jack one side, the opposite side will still be on the ground, especially only jacked up a little. Meaning, it's got a pretty tight suspension to hang up the side too.
