Removed the pin striping this weekend and dropped my car on eibach sportlines. I'm assuming it still will end up with a little sag in the end after this. These pic's are less than 24 hours after the drop.

um that would be the extra 100 pounds of stereo equipment in the back sorry man.

not bad for weight, but again at this point my car is more of a show car than anything. It's something I enjoy and that's all that matters to me.

In all honesty, it looks good as is. The rims flow w/the car. Love the color. I would drop it maybe 1" more, and call it done! :thumbs up

Nice look. Been reluctant to remove the pinstriping myself. Yours came out nicely.

My buddy had an air tool that was similar to a cutting wheel, but had a head with like a buffer, basically it just removes glue,pinstriping,emblems and so on. It turned out nice.

I think that hes referring to the fact that hes more into how his rims look than how light weight they are.

Sportlines claim a 1.4 inch drop all around but with sag most people say it's closer to 2 inches. I'm letting them settle before I make any more decisions to drop more or whatever. Yes those are 17 inch rim's too

Thanks man. Hows your's coming along pm me sometime on azht

actually I was planning on it. I was going to do stock struts for a month or so to give me enough time not to rush on the tokicos but it ended up both front struts were done for so I said fuck it. springs were already installed and next week hopefully i'll have a set of tokico's for my buddy to put on. It was next to free for install anyway.

oh and not me taking them apart so I really don't mind all that much. It's nice to know people.

Originally I had 3 different people. Two people fell through their wrapping deal never got off the ground. The other guy I just really haven't approached recently to ask. He has all the materials, but i'm having him do my tail lights this weekend so I might talk to him about it then.

You can get an SPC front and rear camber combo for just over $150, don't waste your time spending more.

Looks man! The eibach's shouldn't sag. It should be an even drop. how do you like the ride?? Stiffer huh??

Rear camber is poly urethane and i'm going with skunk 2. The others are just a regular rubber. I already have the ingalls front camber bolts picked up
