Finally dropped my ride (new pics)

Here it is. Everyone's been telling me to drop and it looks really nice. Drop is on eibach prokit with stock struts for now. Getting alignment in a few days with camber kit. These were just installed yesterday. Thanks Aaron and Tristan for doing the install!

Nice!!! Does it ride good? I have the sportlines with oem shocks... fixing to get some type of aftermarket shocks... I also have the eibach camber kit.... My rides excellent considering its been lowered on the oem shocks now for about 60,000ish miles..

Ride is a lil bumpy, but okay. I think the race seats make it alot worse. I'm running stock tire size. And if you can tell, it's a bit lower in the rear. Maybe after it settles it might be different.

My sportlines for my coupe did the same thing... they evened out for the most part... It takes about 3 days for them to fully settle...You should be fine on the sagging part

Looks good. I always thought sedans looked lower in the rear due the rear fender being lower then the front. The actual chassis should be the same height in the front and back. Good thing you didnt go with Sportlines, theyre even stiffer.
