Got around to getting everything installed this weekend. New wheels are 20x9 ET40 Forgestar F10's with Nankang NS-II 235/35/20 tires. Springs are Ark lowering springs.

Thank you to Concept 3 for hooking it up on the springs. Went to their shop yesterday and picked these up. Was greeted by all the guys there and was a pleasure to do business with them. Can't wait to check out their exhaust soon.

Did some measuring before and after of the Ground to Fender.
Before Front- About 28"
After- Front- 26 1/2"
Before Rear- 28"
After Rear- 26 3/4"

So Total was 1.5" drop in the front and 1 1/4" rear. The springs will probably settle a bit more, but hopefully not a lot as I like it where it is at.

I will post the DIY to install the suspension tonight.

Pics :)

BONER!!! really nice man. If it were me, id add 15mmR, 10mmF, but thats just me. I like a good bit of poke.
Already on top of it! hahah. Gonna play around to get a bit more poke. It is pretty much dead flush now but wouldn't mind about 5-10mm more.

They are about the same as stock. I have them on my wagon as well. They are great for the price. Also, I abused the crap out of them around the track in my wagon and they seem to hold up decent.

Was reaching out to some people about coilovers and I will get them soon. But needed something for the time being.

Appreciate the compliments guys!

Sonofabitch... that looks good. :thumbsup: Just like Evil said, it's definitely boner-inspiring.

You better run for COTM next month, you're sure to give some stiff competition. (See what I did there :lol:)
