Re: how much is lower is the ltuned front bumper from the st

how much is lower is the l-tuned front bumper from the stock bumper?
A little over 2 inches.

Here's how i measured...
You know those tabs under the front of the bumper where you screw into the plastic underliner with about 9 screws from side to side. Well on the normal bumper, that tabs are just a tiny bit up from the front underside of the bumper. On the L-Tuned they are 2 1/4 higher than the underside of the bumper. So I guestimated about 2 inches plus.

take this pic as your required study

sure, only time you have to be careful is dips and driveways and curves in front of you when parking.

so clearance is fine right?
no clearance probs for me. the place where you peal back the plastic to get to the side markers might not fit perfectly and it will always try to come past your bumper, but thats no biggie.

I've been wanting a brake upgrade. You've been spending your money wisely. were those rotora's a good deal? I've looked at brembo, endless, and some other companies. But its not a top priority. And I have emailed Steve Ganz about those Bilsteins. He gave me a good price but Im not touching my savings, so Im waiting for a few more checks before I look into that. Car is looking clean. You are the master of the pics.

sorry for the brief thread jack..

but thanks Don, that means alot coming from you...your still the L-tuned king, us STOLTED guys, we all aspire to be like you!! you were truly the first who documented it all.....

I always enjoy sharing the pics for everyone.....

as for the brakes, yeah, Steve hooked me up with the set up..I'm loving them.....and u definatly would be happy with the bilstein shock upgrade...no bouncy and smooth as silk with my springs....and tucks in the tires a tad bit more too....
