Pretty shocks..............I see ride height is adjustable, how about pre load and compression/rebound damping?

So.................with all this lowering (and it sounds like you did it for mostly cosmetic reasons); isn't there a substantial trade off in ground clearance?

Nice looking rims BTW.

Got my rims and tires in. Just waiting on the hub centric rings. I will post updated pics when I install them. I will be able to adjust the coils once they are installed.
