It was a Lot lower than what i was expecting on the fronts. But it does seem to be around 1.5" f / 1.0" r.

I do scrape those plastic things at the bottom of my front bumber. But it pays off with the look.

/\ /\ ditto on Dada. I have them right now, the settle much more, close to 2" total drop on stock shocks. I am thinking about getting HTechs/Eibachs (again).

Actually I have had it on for about 3 mos. now. So hopefully its settled enough. It hurts me to hear it scrape on those dang steep driveways!!

I took it to a shop out in Bellflower, Ranchill Tires. $130. Did a good job.

Thanks!!!

When I saw it at the dealer lot glistening in the sun with the SportDesign rims- I could not Resist and fell in Love With It.

I totally agree with you Boman. If they were black they would look sick!!!

If I were to get new rims, they will be black or polished. Maybe when my tires get worn out.

Dude, good luck on the rear for you setup. The rear springs are really soft. I had one person sit on the back seat and you can definitely tell how soft the spring is. With two people, the rear tire almost tucks in.

Post Some pics!!

You know what, the ride is of course a little stiffer.

There was at some point, i wanted to just take them off and go back to stock.

But screw it!!! It looks too sick to put back to stock!!
