Vert Shock Upgrade

I redid my suspemsion about 6 months ago. Mine is a 02 330CiC with non-sport suspension. I used the H and R Touring Cup package. H and R is a nice quality package that I have used on other projects so I didn't hesitate when making the choice. It lowered the car approx 2" from the non-sport height. which is about the same exact height as my stepsons 05 ZHP. Car also has a nice subtle rake to it. The ride is excellent. Couldn't be happier. BTW, If you have any kind of mileage on your other suspension parts I would use this ocassion to replace/upgrade. My car has approx 72K and I replaced the control arms, bushings etc.etc. at the same time. I have attached some "after" pics.

Lastly, my wheels are OZ Ultralegerras 18X8 in Front and 18X9 in rear. Both have a 40mm offset.
