Plans to lower it? Careful on how tall you go
running stock now, not sure on plans to lower, depends on the spring kit i go with, looking for fairly specific spring rates. Dont plan on going much taller at all, just enough to mostly correct speedo, which currently reads about 54@50 and 80@75. Could be the snow tires ive been running, could be guage. Not totally sure yet.

My gauge is fine. Is the car tuned? Tuned before you owned? Someone could have changed it. I know Rob had to adjust his with xcal I believe

If stock I know that some times from the factory the gauge indicates faster than you actually are going on purpose to make you think your going faster than you really are.

yes, this is a common practice, and components are often designed to wear in such a way as to achieve this effect.

The car was bone stock when i bought it, and remains so today aside from tom's tune.

Doesn't Tom's tune use the Xcal? You should be able to correct your speedometer with that.
