They still aren't quite doing it for me but are growing on me a bit I think. LOVE the way they ride though. Bit of rubbing when turning hard and hitting a bump. Only on the fenderwell insert I believe. Might need to raise the front a bit.

from the wrench in your toolbox. all you have to do is twist the bolts at the end of the leafs & re-align




or you could get her some coil-overs

New rims look good PQ. Looks sharp with your setup.

Now tint the DRL's.

I suppose I could. I've actually realized that the new wheels being much less of the 'Car' visually makes a need to add a little more orange. I think maybe powdercoat the calipers?

Or hit them slowly. LOL My driveway I take too fast maybe? hahaha

PQ, just looking at the stance of your car and I love the raked look it has, if you don't mind me asking, How much is your front lowered, 1.5"?? Also what size tire are you running on the front?

Thanks

Not sure the drop in front. I lowered it with Pedders coilovers. I'll get the measurement on a stock car and compare and let you know.

The front tires are 275s on a rim that's 10" wide. Sidewall a/r is 40%.

275/40 R20 front. 315/35 R20 rear .
