Justin finally gets coilovers for the unicorn

Lighting was good today so I bravely wandered out onto the terrible roads around my neighborhood to an empty parking lot 3 blocks away and I scraped only once.

Went from this







To this!











And you can see the lowest part of my car, the FSWerks resonator






Also got one of these and installed today. Trunk is a mess as I am still dialing in the stiffness of the springs so I haven't put the liners back.








Love them love them love them!

I've spent too long looking into the abyss. It's starting to look back.

nice dude it looks good. I scrape every day, you just gotta figure out where you want your car and drive accordingly.

The parking lot at my work is littered with speed bumps and I avoid them like the plague.

Not a fan of the painted fuel door. Looks tacky.

But everything else is coooool.

Thanks guys, I am probably going to end up with spacers on the rear. Still getting used to the low driving and if there is someone other than me in the car it scrapes a lot worse, and since I have one of the only 4 doors I usually become the bus. So I need to raise it a little to accommodate that, last thing I need is a hole in the muffler or pull my exhaust out of the head.
