      Timing belt kit and oxygen sensors. U made the right choice with those rims. They have the bbs style and that's all that matters, the name doesn't mean anything to me at least! Sick rims!

      in that photo i had 1/14 inch left of threads left. the lowest part was probably a few inches off the ground. i raised it back up when i scrapped it twice driving to spots. i dont have a skid plate and i need a clutch before i buy one so it will be at a drivable hieght

      Yours seems pretty low for only 1 1/4. Just placed an order for my Coilovers. I was thinking 2 in front and 1.5 in back. Hopefully, It's not too low.
