Remember that the rear wheel opening is shallower than the front on this body.

It may track straight, but I'd get the toe knocked back into line. Mine was a hair out on a Pro Kit drop.

Looks great, though! Perfect stance.

Nicely done sir! Ride height is lookin' good for sure!

Keep us updated. Looks like a pretty good alternative to the Pro-Kit if everything keeps working well.

haha so impatient... looks really good though. Did you cut the coil out of the top or bottom?

What is the width on the wheel spacers you're running? Front and back?

From what their post said, it looks like they cut the coil off from the bottom

No, I just happened to see that there was a new post in the thread. And, since I knew what the answer to the question was, based on the op's previous post I was trying to be helpful.

I'm not sure I like the end results, but its their car, and if they like the way it looks and rides then so be it. I think the rear looked a little too low now, but that's just me.

It's the way the body is made, but yea it looks that way. The front is settling though...

Update: The front and rear fender gap is evening out. I'll take pics this weekend. Handling is superb, and I am still amazed by the excellent ride quality.
