I like the new look... but did you only lower the front? the rear still looks like it's at stock height

Yeah, the rear hasn't been drop. Will be done soon though, I suppose. heheh.

Yeah, the edges sucked but I had gloves on the whole time or else that aircraft remover would've taken out my hands.

I didn't paint those rims. I bought them "copper" colored. I just stripped off all the paint and the sanded and polished it. The only coat over the rims is just polish.

The springs are Eibach Sportline. I'm thinking of waiting until i get some shocks before i put in the rear springs? Eibach says that this particular spring will drop my car 1.4'' but it looks a little more than that. Rims are 16x7.5 and the tires are 205/45/16. I think once these ware out, I will go thicker and wider... probably 225/45 or 215/50.

I like that color paint, the car paint that is.

Wow!!! me too me too I also have damage to that same spot on the rear bumper thats so freeking weird man!

Although looks more like a small split rather than a scratch.

Or maybe its just a smudge, we might never know

Hey DXR how were you only able to get a pair of front coils? Dont they usually come in a set? And how much were they? Thanks for the rim information... I actually am REALLY liking your setup... our sedans look great with 5 spoke rims!

Thanks a lot! I gotta search up pix of ur car on here. I have the whole set of Eibach Sportlines, I just didn't put the rears on yet. I'll probably do that today. I got the set from a local guy for $100. Great price, I love 'em so far.

Oh and I may go ahead and put on the rear springs... hopefully it won't be as bumpy as i imagine it to be :cross fingers:

Moar Drop Request Satifaction.


oh man, i think i wanna do that for real now... and then not go anywhere near houston. :gonk:

$100 oh man... I wish I could find a deal like that... so getting those springs on are pretty tough? I have actually never tried touching my suspension other than upper strut bars, but if I can get a kit like the one you have on your car right now (well front so far ) I'd be a happy man!

springs weren't too hard. I did suspension stuff on my old EK, so I was used to it. Just be careful cuz the hat of the shocks (struts???) have these tiny ball bearing thingies that can fall out easily... annoying. There are like 35 or so little itty bitty *****. There are a few how-tos online out there somewhere. Check it out. Lower'd cars always look better. Goodluck on urs!

Dude, that's my car.
But seriously, besides the rim and drop we would be the same.
As for the scratches .. I HAVE THEM TOO ..
