Haha installing those springs took us 4 hours! The results are damn nice! Love that no finger gap at the back and about one finger gap at the front.:thmsup: Now get that camber kit!

alright pic is coming up in like 10 mins!

anddd its been a day since installation and i can already see my rear wheels bent, as in.. uh negative camber?

so i guess you DO need a camber correction for the sportline like "glen e" mentioned.

but my question is, would one arm kit do the job or would i need to buy the 3 piece kit?
anyone have the answer?

just depends on how low you go if you need just the Camber Arm or all 3 (Camber,Toe, and Trailing Arms)

uh.. various angle shots:





well so far handling is AMAZING. i dont know if its because i just feel that way or not but i love it so far.
only downside is... my uh.. exhaust pipe gets stuck everytime i go in to my garage... i gotta figure out how to get in without scraping it or just park my car outside.... sighhhh :l
*sorry for different settings for all the pictures and.. before shot was taken at my friend's house, after shot was taken at my dorm parking lot and other shots were taken from my home garage.

*also sorry for my fail skill of photography hahahaha

I feel you bro, my driveway have a 60 dgree incline, so I can't slam my car, even I have a coilovers:D, I can only lower about 1 inch 70, and still have the car scrape everytime I go in and out of the driveway.:biggrin:

wtf????? is it just me..?

anyways,

"bkzdragon" - ride comfort is bit compromised when i go over speedbumps or like little cracks on the road. but im guessing that's the trade off for lowering cars right? as far as u-turning or cornering, im just gonna say its beautiful. hahaha sorry i just cant think of any other words to describe this feeling.


BTW! i figured out how to go into my garage without scraping! yay!
