...using Eibach sportlines.....1.5" in the front and 1.8" in the rear...just got done today, so i guess it will settle a bit more...nothing too drastic(sorry for the shitty pics)

What a difference! Looks 10x better than before and I'm sure handles nicely too *th-up*

sweet drop :)

you know you can get those body skirts the same colour as your body by simply removing the grey? *th-up* instructions and whatnot were posted on this forum somewhere

Nice drop, just did the same thing to mine. Do you notice any rubbing when you hit big bumps?

Now the fun starts.
Have you done an alignment?
Without one your tires will not last too long.

Having said that, the car looks 10x better.

i would like to look into doing this as well, as our cars are very similar..

what parts will i need, and how much will they cost?

i drive my car in the winter, so will it be possible to raise it back up again in the fall?

please remember that i'm new to modding, but i am eager to learn ,and you gotta start somewhere.

thanks,
dave
