Default Post up pics of your lowered Trans-Am please!!

I'm in the market for springs. I'd like to see many pictures of lowered Trans-Ams.

I have 17"x9.5/11" Fikse FM/5 Wheels. I'd prefer pictures of T/A's with this size combo and lowered. I'd like variety of examples like DMS, BMR, Hotchis, G2, Eibach, etc.

The pictures you guys post for me will greatly influence my decision!!! As far as how I want the car to look, I'd prefer a little raked look, (Hotckis springs) but I don't want the springs to not lower the car enough.

this is how the car sits now...

Please help me slam my car!! (C'mon just post ONE pic for me!!!)

Here are three for ya
I don't have 17x11's but maybe this helps.
I have QA1's on all four corners in these pics other than the stock one. For some reason the oil filled shocks allow the car to sit lower than the gas charged shocks. The pic with the Prokit looks more like sportlines. The pic from 4-24-05 has the stock rear spring in there with a heater hose on the top coil. I also had BMR's in the rear for a while but didn't get any pics. It measured about 1/4" to 1/2" lower in the rear than it sits now but the ride was much harsher.

I have Granatelli springs, w/Koni SA's up front and revalved Bilsteins out back. 17x9.5 & 17x11 wheels. There are several pics in this album, but here's one that shows the stance pretty well:

Good luck...

I hope this helps some. It seems that most go with the Pro kit from Eibach, or the Ground Control set-ups, but those are quite expensive, i will do those hopefully some day!

BMR springs. For some reason mine looks lower than others that have BMR springs. These pics were the day after install so they hadn't settled yet so it looks a little higher than they are now. I'll get some new pics once it stops raining and I can get the car cleaned up

01 red ws6, those look pretty close to what my BMR's are like. I still have my stock shocks. How about you.
