Initial pics of Tein SS install

Got them from hopupracing.com $950 shipped(excellent shipping time btw!). (fyi)

Sorry for the medicore pics and dirty as crap car. Clean car and much better pics coming tomorrow.

This is 2 hours after install. I didn't really tell the guy exactally what height i wanted to be at. He basically said, "so you want it right on the tire?". I said, "yeah pretty much". So thats what he did. The back i still too high; but me and my friend are adjusting them in the morning to go about anoth 1/2 inch lower in the back or so. Only problem is i think there is a chance that my tires will scrub the finder wheel lip. But whatev. By body shop guy said he can shave about 1/4" or so off the lip if need be. I also might want to raise the front up a hair. I don't know about that yet though; i'm going to see how it looks with the back dropped a little more first. But i'm thinking that i will raise the front maybe 1/4"? Probably will.

And the ride quality is far better than i expected. I had before Neuspeed Race with the HFP shocks(i did have HFP springs and shocks but i swapped springs). I did not like the ride it gave me with the HFP and Neuspeed. Especially sine a few months ago. Maybe they were blown? idk. i just know i really really like the ride on the SS's. They're set to 8 on the damper. Nothing crazy stiff at all about it.

Like i said, more pics of adjusted ride height and clean car pics tomorrow.

Maybe about 1 more inch for me. Two more and i'd have tail sag maybe. I think the front's going up a hair too soooo... but maybe not. I'm about to go adjust it in a few mins.


They're 18x7.5. Had them for about 2 1/2 years. One day i'm uping to 19's.
