I'd just scuff & paint the area that needs it. & yes you'll see it from the front. Thats why I went w/ a black one= blends in more that any other color.

Whats wrong w/ Eibach? I replaced my FRPP's w/ the Eibach system last yr. I also like the H&R sport cup kit too. What do you run? A torsen helps alot too. If I didn't have to deal w/ slight snow a few days of the yr. I'd be running Z1 Star Spec's also.
