Default Slammed my vert :)

Springs are Intrax front and Sportline rear. Shocks are Stagg shocks off ebay. Perfect ride height IMO.

Looks great. And they handle so much better that low. I had eibach sport springs on my '98. Problem was, I drug everything with the longtubes and spohn torque arm and relocation mount.

I'll have to get some. As far as the springs I have no idea other than the Intraxs are advertised at 2 inches and the Sportlines are 1.8"

Thank you. I really didn't think much of them, they were on my 96. The drop completely changed my opinion on them though

Overall I like it but it looks a tad to low in the front, IMO.

Did you get the alignment done? I would imagine that you will need to elongate the holes for more camber adjust or go with some aftermarket adjustable control arms.

Looks bad *** but I cringe as it is when driving in an unfamiliar area lol, almost got stuck a few times and I am not even close to being that low.
