FINALLY dropped it (updated with new pic)

04 VP with neuspeed sports, blues, spc and ingalls.





I'll post some more pictures after it gets aligned tomorrow. It's pretty scary to drive now....

The car looks high because I had JUST lowered it and the springs hadn't setted at all. After I wash it this afternoon, I'm gonna update the pics. It had the perfect stance now in my opinion. THe install wasn't that bad. It took a long time because I had hand tools and a crappy jack. I could do it in an hour with a lift and air tools. Anyone around Augusta that's getting lowered just holler at me and I'd be glad to help. The ride is stiffer than stock now, but it handles a WHOLE lot better.

Yea just give it a bit, i know when i had my Neuspeed Sports on there it took them a few weeks and they settled, making it look alot nicer. When you get in it and drive it the first time the difference is awesome, looks good man!

oic...i did mine myself with a heavy duty hammer drill and a 16mm masonry/metal/hard surface bit...worked like a charm...came out clean...i love the d-specs just cuz of how soft or hard u can make the ride...i have it set on stiff because i noticed i get better gas mileage cuz my camber alignment doesnt change as much giving me better mileage...when i had it on soft it would burn gas like mad

the drop should look better after the settlement. good for you man. when you run at about 80 on the highway, turning is a little smoother. nice
