      Is that with the H+R's or the Vmaxx? I can't decide whether to go with just the springs or spend an extra 250 and grab some coil overs. I have the Votex kit so I don't really wanna drop it too much lower for my daily driver, I already scrape all over the place. Just need to get rid of that horrible fender gap

      That picture is like exactly the ride height I want, at least for a while. If i can save myself the extra money I definitely will, so I'm hoping you say those are the HRs

      go with coils, i got springs put in at the end of last summer and they were ok for a little while but you will wanna go lower and you have to replace the shocks and struts or they will eventually be shot after 8-10 thousand miles as mine have

      probably just better to spend the money for coils
      If winter was only shorter... and my jet was a little bit lower...


      great paarts, great service ked

      The HRs wore down your shocks and struts? Damn, thanks for the feedback though I think I probably will just go for coils

      Those are the h&r springs, i only had them for 2,000 miles so I wouldn't know about the wear and tear they have... I would go coils, just so you have the option to go lower

      Na i have B&G springs which go lower than H&R springs so that could be why, i got my ST's in a couple weeks ago, and should be installing them as soon as the snow and the frost heaves go away
      If winter was only shorter... and my jet was a little bit lower...


      great paarts, great service ked

      Good luck with that man I ran only a euro plate in the rear of my B3 wagon and had the regular plate right above it and still got pulled over. The rear plate needs to have a light on it for night driving. Just a heads up, I was pulled over here in Franklin on 51st & Rawson.

      I got off lucky and got a 10 day compliance ticket, it was no big thing. It just turned into an invitation to get pulled over. You never know who will pull you over either, I got lucky and the guy that pulled me over thought it was kinda cool and was a decent human being. I know others in the area are not like him at all.

      In PA, driving without state legal tags is a huge no-no... Just a heads up -- you are spreading your legs wide open and giving a bullseye to the full force pounding of a huge legal weewee.
