Struts don't drop the ride. They look like just replacements.

I'm not really into hatchbacks but your car makes me have a crap ton more respect for hatchbacks. The car looks beast as hell.

Dropping your ride will require you to get struts that more accepting of drops, ie shorter travel or stiffer themselves. I have kyb agx adjustables to match my megan racing springs (about 2" drop)

Just the fronts for now. If anything, I'm hoping they will pick up the front end a little bit for more ground clearance, but I know it won't be much.

I put this in the the Roadtrip thread but I'll also drop it in here.

A small section of Aspen Hollow Rd.



The drop off point for my bike. It was pretty dusty.



On the bike by this point. I followed a nice trail/4x4 road that ran along some power lines. It had some great views and demonstrates what the western side of the Adirondack Park looks like under all the trees.






An old dried up beaver dam.





It's obvious that I'm still going to have the same dust "problems" with my new EAP's. lol



Now driving home on Texas Rd: another one of those great dirt roads that doesn't know what a straight line is.






Found a little "ford" for the Ford.



And last stop before I hit the pavement again was a beaver dam.



After about 10 minutes at the beaver dam, this bird barely moved once.

Today is the first day I've been able to work on the car in a while. I'm in the process of lightly sanding the roof in preparation to painting it black.

I have question if anyone else knows or has an opinion. I'm only lightly sanding the clear coat so the paint has a rougher surface to cling to and I'm wondering if it's alright to skip priming and start right with the black (it will most likely be Krylon Gloss Black). The paint's not going on bare metal so I think it will be alright. Right?

it would stick but usually it doesnt hold up under direct sunlight (i.e. the top of your roof) without fading b/c there is no clear coat protection.
