I might end up going with the sportlines then. I can always switch back to stock i i dont like the way that they ride. They will also save me some money over the prro kit springs too.

Finally got the rally armor flaps installed. They weren't too bad to do. This isn't the best pic in the world so I will take more in a bit and give a write up on how I installed it. They look great though and work great. They catch a lot of dirt and rocks so they don't damage any paint.

install of the front flaps is fairly straight foward. Your first step is to get new hardware. I got mine from Lowes. All you need are longer clips to hold the flap in the factory holes that are already there. You will need three new clips for each flap. Once you have aquired new clips you must drill the holes in the flaps. I simply measured how much of the flap I wanted to stick out on each side. I did about half inch. For actually marking where to drill I eyeballed it. ( only hard part) Once you have drilled one flap and done a test fit you can just use that flap to drill holes for the other flap. Everything should fit evenly on each side after this. The back flaps were a little more tricky as there is only one factory hole to use for figment. Also the fender liner in the back is recessed so you will need some long screws. About a 2 1/2 inch ones will do fine. This is the one factory hole already there. Remove the torx screw that is already there and toss it. It won't be needed anymore. Also pull off the silver clip you see in the picture or the new screw wont go through. Use this hole to mark where you need to drill the first hole in the flap. The second hole I drilled I had to eyeball. I drilled into the fender liner as well. Make sure you get screws with a nut that goes on the end as they will help keep the screw from coming loose. Once you get all your holes drilled then use that flap to mirror the other side and drill those holes. Last but not least put all the screw in and make sure everything is tight and wont fall off. Then just sit back and enjoy!

Finally got my exhaust and have it installed. I took it to a local shop and had it done. Didn't feel like messing with it lol. They only charged me 90 bucks and it took 20 minutes. Well worth the convienence. As far as the system goes its awesome! Sounds amazing. Has a great sound under acceleration. And great sound at idle. Highly reccomend it.
