Hey so I finally lowered the focus.

aaaaand with the worst cellphone camera quality in the world, I present to you Kevat, finally with some sort of a drop. My boyfriend stole my DSLR so I'm stuck with my phone on top of the fact it's currently snowing here and that's lame. So hang on tight for some actual pictures, but until then... here yah go!




Not as low as I was hoping, but it's a start.

Haha I know I know, planning on rocking this set up for a while then dropping it more most likely. Roads around my place suck.

What was used for the drop? Looks like SVT springs. Looks good though!

I sure hope that front settles some more. Looks like you got some rake going on.

your next setup should be so low that a credit card will be a challenge to fit inbetween

Thanks guys!

The set up is the Eibach prokit on stock struts and shocks. I know you aren't supposed to do that, but I'm low on cash at the moment and plan to replace them either the end of this summer or beginning of next.
I'm happy with where the back sits since I'm constantly driving my boyfriend's heavy speakers around for his shows and that makes me rub already, but that front kinda erks me.
Is there anything I can do to make it lower besides wait and see how much it settles?
