I'm the biggest IDIOT on MAX! hahaha...

My dad had put a spare tire under the front of the car (as a back up in case it fell off the jack stands).

So I didn't know it was there and was tired last night and just let the car down... Didn't realize there was a god damn wheel holding the front up!

Hahaha....

The ride height is good now And I'm sure it'll settle a little more too...

Gawd!

Car looks nice!
What's wrong with it? Why does it need a tow?

R_Jay - I think I mentioned it earlier in the post, but my stock breaklines won't undo from the chasis. The 11mm nuts won't budge. So to get my stainless steel lines on, and hence have working breaks, I need to get the shop to get those nuts undone!

Ah, I must have missed that one
At least it's in the final stages. It must be killing you to see it look so good and not be able to drive it.

Good news about the tire! There is a certain amount of stress relief in realizing it was something stupid and not a REAL problem after all!

Not sure how much of a drop the springs are supposed to give you, but once the suspension settles, the rear tires will tuck nicely.
