I will be ordering smaller tires 165/50R or 185/45 this weekend. Current tires are 205/60.
Going to be dropped in few weeks, svt dampers with rod cut off 1 inch and rewelded for more low height clearance. I will be getting adjustable coil over sleeves with cut progressive springs. I am not sure how much camber I will be running yet because it will be daily mostly on highway, probably -2 rear and -1 to -1.5 front. I am excited to roll this shit out with rubber mallet and heat gun [gunfire]

I know it needs a lip badly! Eventually look for svt ones and I am contemplating to create similar to hofele grille :) the mesh looks exactly same as expanded aluminum mesh..

[welcome] to FF [ffrocks]

Right now, they don't look right. Maybe I'll change my mind about how I feel about this car when it get stanced. When you do stance it, please post better quality pics[thumb]

I was not going hellaflush or slammed, just nice low ride height. Slap on 205/45 and run it like autox style would be better for low offset. Maybe run fender flares for moar low heh.

If you're not gonna stance it, then you need a V8 to pull off that offset. Or do an RS conversion if you want to keep the wide look(but if you do an RS conversion, then the wheels have to go:)

I wouldn't cut a "rod" specifically on a SVT spring or strut that's just asking for trouble. Get some real coil overs and save your self money, time, and headache.
