      ... to Accuair Switch Speed management. Airlift XL fronts and rears.

      Finished the install over the weekend, in the rain. Heres a pic of the car unwashed and the wheels dirty as hell, still needs a frame notch, and my tires arent helping at all.



      Ive already picked out the new wheels, but ill be running these for dust off. They are being refinished in white again, hopefully by next week

      Updated Pics/wheels Pg. 2

      thanks man, I really like the white as well. new wheels should be on shortly, I might consider continuing the white wheel theme and color match some other goodies.

      haha, the rears actually sit amazing IMO. I reused my spacers from when i was on coils and i was nervous, but the fitment is about as perfect as It could get without stretch... and with a 7.5" thats not gonna happen

      i didnt modify the rear bracket... care to elaborate?

      You have airlift rears right?

      Aired out I was at 23.5" FTG (higher than my coils). I cut up the bracket to go lower.

      Ah, how much did you gain from it?

      as it is now, my rears are like a 1/4" away from the lip and i feel like its my tires holding me back from going even lower.

      the big thing bugging me now is getting a frame notch, ive just been self notching when the roads are smooth lol.

      Seems like you are able to go much lower than I was able to.

      This is how I sit now.
