What up everyone.....finally got a chance to take a few pictures of my car with the coilovers on. I'm now running JIC Magic Coilovers. Dropped at about 2.5" all around, but have plenty more of a drop to go. Hopefully if I ever get a chance to trade my rims, I'll be able to go lower. Here you go....

This was right after I put the coilovers on....took this picture around 9 PM.



I was able to take these this morning. The front bumper sucks right now cuz of the damage on the front corner......Anyone know of a body shop that'll repaint the front bumper for cheap??? :D

Some changes made.....slapped on the bB emblem and took off the front plate.


Yes these are 2 different pictures :p


Close up of the drop. No finger gap in the rear and 1 in the front.



Enjoy

Thanks for the comment! The ride is alright....I have to adjust the softness a little more. Right now, the ride is a little stiff, but not too bad. All I need now is some new tires.

Can't wait to see how your ride is going to look with those MKIII's. I'm sure that's gonna look sick.

any rubbing issues?
Right now it's very minimal....I have to hit a dip at a pretty good speed to feel a rub. But that's by myself. I haven't really tried it with passengers in the car. But the reason for the rubbing is because I'm running stock tires (185/60/15) and dropped with a no finger gap in the rear and a 1 finger gap in the front.

I realized that Falken 512's which almost everyone and their great grandma is running on 002's, has a really bad tread wear. Hankook makes a sweet tires, and the tread wear is way higher rated than falkens.

Ayos, Pare! :) Hey, what if, instead of trading/getting rid of the wheels, just change the tires and add a bit of neg. camber to the front and back? Nitto makes a tire that's supposed to withstand up to -5 deg. of camber (Neogens). With my -2 front and -3 rear, I am now able to tuck 205/50s without rubbing. If I were to do it again though, I'd get 195/50s...

Check out the extra meat on the inner wall:

Normal price is at least $1000, depending on which model you get. But for these, I bought used and got it for a really really cheap price.
