Not to discredit the car or the awesome look or anything, that's just the first thing I think of when I see cars dragging subframe on stretched 17s.

It's a lot harder to be slammed with big daddy wheels, like sin3 or that one 'siniztr' steel grey coupe with CCWs, which isn't too slammed, but he could.

I thought I would add my contribution. I also wanted to ask your guys' opinions of my height. The front is as low as it can go with out rubbing issues, but I just dropped the rear 3/8" because it was too high. The fender was above the tire completely, but I liked the raked look. Now I think it might be too low though in the rear

What do you guys think?

Here was before



And here is now after the rear dropped 3/8" more

The rear is lower than the front by default on any kit

I know but with coilovers that doesn't mean that you have to keep it that way. I was just asking opinions if I should raise my rear or not.

I think everyone on here should post up measurements from fender to ground, and see who the real slammed boys are
