here's my car (dropped) updated (erased the old one)

updated pic

i recently adjusted the height of the car. now, front and back has no finger gap and im so happy because it doesnt rub. i still have the mudflaps and will get rid of them. ill post pictures once i get rid of the mudflaps.

also, i want to take this oppurtunity to thank each one of you for the advice....i really appreciate it.

i want to make the car look alright and at the same time keep it clean because the police are kinda crazy in my area.

the first quote was 75 per hour. then they estimated the time it will take for them to install it. they said, about 2 hours. so its about 140....but....they hook me up and i only paid 80 bucks for them to install it and get rid of my old suspension...not only that, they also did alignment and adjusted my camber.

i bought the coilovers for 800 w/o tax but paid shipping. they also bought the 01 mounts for 20 bucks each. the camber was for 150

I dont have any mudflaps and my paint is in perfect condition back there. Dont worry about damage. When you get a body kit (if you do) it'll cover up whatever anyways-- but then u know where the damage is going to go! Might as well use it as a test period to see what affects your driving has on your paint.

Your drop looks perfect in those pictures!

Your car has a very clean look to it.

Lookin' good.

How many inches did you drop ur vic? I am thinkin' about lowering my car about 1-1.5 inches maybe. Just want to get rid of the fender gap. I am worried that the handling might get affected so i'm thinkin' bout tokico shocks. I also have a front lip, don't want it rubbing pavement.
