Detroit Speed suspension package.....Awsome!

Just wanted to post a couple of pics of my car with the DS suspension package. It consists of 4 coil overs with approximately 1.5" of drop and larger diameter front and rear sway bars. the car looks great and the handling is improved as well. Great package and people to work with at Deroit Speed. Let me know what you think.

I think that stance is PERFECT for the stock wheels and tires! Great looking car!

We just put this kit on our project car. It was VERY easy to install. In fact the hardest part was removing the front stock swaybar.

The stance is great now. Not so low that it's a PITA to drive, but low enough so that it looks good.

There was also a marked improvement in handling and in how the car feels through turns. It's far less "wallowy" now.

Considering the cost and the time involved it's a great mod in my opinion.

Detroit Speed has coilovers?

What exactly did you change?

The kit is 975, labor is usually around 4 hours from most shops, and it does need an alignment when it's done. DSE provides you with the specs.
