Dropped her finally on some Race springs. :)
 
Also painted the front outer rings on the grill a satin black.

Looks awesome! Ever thought about painting the headlight trim black?

NumbaOneNewb 10-06-2012 12:29 AM

Yeah man, that's sick. Like dude said, get that bezel blacked out and that window trim as well. I'll hook you up with my vinyl if you want. It should be enough for the bottom straight trims but that long upper one piece, I'd recommend plasti dip. Much easier.

Looks really good! Could you take more pictures of the kidney grilles?

Looks great dude!

Never quite understood all the hype about dropping cars though... wont you just scrape ass going over bumps and getting onto inclines and what not? How do you avoid that? My 323CI isnt dropped but she is low to the ground and even she scrapes the ground every once it a while - it drives me nuts.

What springs and dampers? Looks great!

H&R race springs that i got used on here. currently using the oem sport shocks. i didnt plan on using the springs after new years. since i had planned on some BC coils. but i think im pretty happy with the ride height even with springs. just need to get me some new shocks/struts now.

I'm running the same springs. Yours were red right? What's the part number on them? What dampers are you leaning towards?

E40SICK 10-06-2012 11:56 AM

yup mine were red. Bilsteins is what i have in mind.

Yikes. I wouldn't drive on that combination any longer than it takes to pick up a set of Bilstein Sports and get them swapped in immediately. Race springs/stock shocks is a horrendous combo. But once you do the shocks, you'll have a killer setup.

Sometimes I think my H&R race springs are too low for my Bilstein sport shocks & struts :eeps:

Thank you sir! I was super confused because it looked so similar but haven't been able to find the name of that lip!
