Excuse my ignorance but do those bags just bolt on or is some fab work involved?

Well the fronts all I need to do is weld a sleeve around the bottom end of the strut to make it 52mm instead of the 50mm the struts come in. The rear is basically a bolt in lol

I know what you guys are thinking "doesn't look bagged/he was lower static". I may be bagged but my car won't let me go any lower lol, I have some pretty big tires on these wheels so they hold me up so much more compared to my style 5s and won't let me lay frame at all Hopefully next week I will order some new tires so the car can lay frame! I'll post some more pics when I wash the car hahaha!

Yeah I like them a lot but they have to much meat on them! Once I get tires they should look a lot better and the car should be able to come down a lot more!
