Just a couple of snaps after fitting the new suspension

I feel like it is a lil too low in the rear, maybe it will level out. Also these wheels are temporary until my Style 95's get done being refinished

just lower the front a bit more. get actual coilovers instead of some mismatched springs.

Nice. I'm about that low. Impossible to get over speed bumps without going over them at a crazy angle...

After having a closer look at the ride height today, i believe the car is perfectly level...my pictures look like there is some reverse rake going on, but i think its just the angle of the pictures taken. As for the ride it is a lil bouncy, I may need firmer shocks up front eventually. But nothing thats crazy intolerable. The worst is dealing with speedbumps. They should be banned

Why didn't you just go with the Race's in the rear as well. Those are really low too, and I think a slight "rake" makes our cars look great!

Re: Just a couple of snaps after fitting the new suspension

The H&R fronts were given to me. After trying to locate just the rear, I gave up and found a good local deal on adjustable fk rear springs and shocks. I may throw the adjusters in when I get my new wheels fitted, just was curious to see how low I could go without the adjusters... And I agree I do like a bit of rake as well, so I guess final stance rests on how my next wheels fit

Nice but I think you are right. Little to low in the rear.
