Default Just lowered my car (LOTS of pics)

I don't believe I've ever posted pics on here, so I figured right after I lowered it would be a good time.

Enjoy

245/45/17 in front 275/40/18 in back, they're replicas.

As for the lowering, it has Sportlines with SLP Bilstein shocks. I also have adjustable Ground Control cups in the rear, so I can get as much or as little rake as I'd like. Also went with UMI relocation brackets.
I may drop the back like 1/8th to a 1/4 inch or so in the future. It just seems like it may be a tad to high for me. Maybe it'll grow on me

Thanks for the comments!

How much did the springs advertise they would drop the car and how much did you really see? Also hows the ride?

I think they advertise like 1.8 all around. I didn't measure either, but I would guess it's close to that, maybe a bit more in front. The rear, when all the way down is definitely 1.8 or more, yet I can raise it up to nearly stock height if I want.

The ride is actually much better than before. Keep in mind I replaced 180,000 mile shocks/springs. I can "feel the road" more, in other words it doesn't "float" over bumps as much. It's much flatter in corners as well, MUCH less body roll. I'm actually very pleased with these, it's not a terrible ride in any sense, actually not bad at all.

Awesome stance. I need to buy some springs and finally do mine the right way. This hose mod I have in the back isn't near low enough

Thanks for not saying the typical response "oh, looks good for a V6" lol

And thanks to everyone else, I really appreciate it.

Keep in mind it's a DD, so you KNOW I keep it clean
