Thanks! Yeah I will lower it this upcoming weekend hopefully. I bought this:

It fits a 1000 times better than the other one.

It will hopefully be on next weekend! Me and my buddy are going to try doing it. If we dont get it, we will have his dad help us. But im sure we can do it. lol We enjoy these sort of projects. He is currently at college, but will be home next weekend for summer. He works at subway and starts as soon as he gets back, so whenever we both have a day off we will work on it for sure. Im hoping it all goes well. All the research I did nobody said they had problems rubbing, but with my luck I will. lol

Your car being dropped will pick you up a few votes on ROTM I think. You will have some issues with bolts being seized in our area, just be prepared. Maybe hit them with some spray the day or two before. I could not get my LCA's off, had to just squeeze the springs in there.
