Artik Spring
 
Got the new wheels mounted.

They are 18x9s et35 CSL Reps all around.
Common I know, but i had to have a set least for a little while.
Plus i haven't seen anyone do 9s all around.


Took her for a small shoot, didn't have much time to find any scenic backdrop or do anything creative, plus all the grass is light brown and muddy, so these will have to do until everything starts to blossom.

Clear tails are coming just haven't put them on yet.

There is bearly any wheel gap!!, I consider that really good for stock height. I'm actaully quite happy with it.
The car is pretty low as it is, I don't really think I'll be lowering it until I have to replace shocks/stuts if they get blown, but right now it handles great and rides decent.

But I have been pricing out coil-overs so who knows, I just don't think it's needed as bad as you guys make it out to be! Now an e30 at stock height now that's bad, you can fit your head in the wheel gap.

Suck it! It's staying like that for now.

:( ... So I guess you'd make a good foster parent...

Here's your problem. Throw on a set of lowering springs if you don't want to spend the cheeze on coilovers.

Otherwise it looks good *th-up*

What I'm trying to say is that the stock height doesn't bother me at all.
I'm thinking of throwing a set of konis on n keep the stock springs. I don't want to slam it just for looks and have it ride rough.

If there were a set of coilovers that rode like stock, then I'd gladly spend the money, but koni stopped making coilovers. I preferred the koni's over the PSSs /bilstien I've driven.

Talk to doogee. He just dropped some coin on a coilover set-up.

Remove front spring pads like Jay?
