looks good man. expect it to drop a tad bit more once the springs settle. i know with my sportlines, i can maybe get one finger between the wheel and fender.

Is that 2.0" F / 2.2" R ??

I went with H&R Sport Springs....1.5" FR......As per the FSWerks site....The H&R website says like 1.3" F / 1.4" R...I am more apt to go with the H&R site as my rear end sits a little lower....probably about 1cn than the front
