Yeah, but because of the shape of the interior and the fact that there is no trunk, I feel like the wagons have a LITTLE more room. just a smidge.

It's funny... people who drive anything expensive often get labeled by folks who drive less expensive cars. I have found, without exception, that douchebags cover all demographics and incomes. You can be an douchebag in either a Echo or an Escalade.

I dont know the meaning of those rivets, were there when I got the car (if you mean 2 rivets in top mounting point of CO?).
Yes, there is plenty of travel. I think the front still has about 2" to go, rear is in its top position in the pic above, in this attached pic it is half way down. So there IS plenty of travel!
And you can always take the adjusting rings off, so back goes even lower!

nice, very nice

I find it interesting that the europeans (and australians)....i guess other markets in general get a lot of stuff (suspension, engine, etc) that we dont even get an option for here in the u.s.

what brand are they anyway?

Yea so am I. I would be rolling around on them as summer wheels on my touring as well.

Oh a side note who here with a "xit" has lowered it? What suspension kit did you use and how low is the drop?

Sorry to disappoint you guys, but those ARE my summer wheels. I was testing these summer wheels when fitted the coils.

I am running 17" wheels in winter, here is a pic taken before CO's
