Talking Before & After - Phastek X5 Springs (B&G)

Had these installed yesterday. Never driven any kind of car with a suspension upgrade. For "just springs" the handling improvement is amazing. Looks are nice too with 1.5" in the front and 1.4" in the rear. I really don't have anything to compare it to but so far I'm happy and they only set me back $210. Just have to watch out for those curbs.

First picture is a before and after (after is a very dirty car ) and the second one just shows the afterwards wheel gap.
