I tinted my windows about 2 weeks ago. Then I bought some Tokico Illuminaties <sp?> adjustable shocks. And at Luxury Motor Fest I bought a set of TEINS lowering springs. About .75 in the front and 1.00 in the back. I brought the shocks and springs to LMW to get put on last saturday, but found out that they sold me the wrong springs. The springs were suppose to be fitted on the GS300/400. I also wanted a lower drop. So they switched it with a set of Tanabe's which drops it 1.25" in front and 1.50" back. They also painted my calibers for me. Wanted to say thanks to LMW for the install and the paint. No more yapping here are the pixs.

Before the drop.

After the drop.



painted calibers black.

Ride quality is pretty good. Just a little bit stiffer but it feels a lot better than stock. Not sure what model.

i believe those are black Manaray Evo's?

and also, LMW..do u know if the springs are orange? that would be the GF210's....

those are the ones i might look into...and i might also get the same shocks as you..how is the stiffness on the springs? around corners? let me know..i might go thr same route as u..

Yea they are the orange ones. The not as stiff with the shocks on soft. it turns a lot better then stock. And the drive just feels a lot better.
