Eibach Prokit before and after

Here are before and after pictures of my 02 sportx. I went with Prokits and Tokico blues. I'm very pleased with the ride. Just like stock, only lower.

The front doesn't look dropped much at all. The reason: I replaced all of the spring isolators\shock bushings. The wagoon has 120k on it, all of that rubber was shot. I highly recommend changing them, it really reduces the road noise.

Looks way better man. The rear looked so much higher than the front before.

Definitely should have some from the factory this way, it was completely raked out before. No way I'm making a meet within the next 2 weeks, some idiot hit my car over the weekend. It's not too bad, I'll post pics shortly.
