I also wanted to ask if anyone runs ZHP springs on theirs (i'm looking for some moderate springs so I can still use my tow hitch).


Congrats on your wagon purchase. I bought my bumpers through a local body shop that extended their cost to me - but Tischer has very competitive pricing including shipping. Call Jason or Evan.

Will you want to do a 5 speed swap or 6 speed swap? Which engine do you have?

The ZHP spings will work well - but they wont lower it much - but will be a good compromise. I have a tow hitch and my car is lowered and it pulls a trailer just fine. But my receiver does hit sometimes when i pull in or out of driveways.

I'll take some proper photos (well, best I'm able to manage) next week & hope Uncle Don can add me to the gallery. Exterior Mods include 18" HM2's, MTech II, Bi-Xenons, ACS rear add-on, Clears, Tint.

Love this thread!!!!
sounds great - and please forgive me if I came off wrong - I am in no way trying to make this a competition...I am an enthusiast just you and everyone else. I am sorry if I came across that way
