Huge Update: All the latest goodies (Lowered, rotors, +more)

Post by bdmski » Fri Mar 28, 2008 2:01 am

I just lowered the car TODAY! It looks great and turns like butter. :D Today I installed Progress Lowering Springs (1.8 drop) Tokico HP struts, and a Progress 22mm rear sway bar. Until today my car wasn't even equipped with a rear sway bar. Also pictured are the SP Performance rotors and Mopar airbag delete I recently installed too. Please let me know what you think of my ride and the new drop! :thumbup: Next up, I'm saving up for a carbon fiber SRT-4 hood, then will finally be able to start saving up for an engine swap!

It's definitely a bit bumpier than stock. But it's not a big deal for me, I love the way it feels. It truly does feel like butter going into the turns, no matter how fast. It grips what ever turn I throw at it like a panther, compared to before. :occasion9: The sway bar probably helped a lot too though.

looks good, my only suggestion is get matching door handles, black looks great with that color, but my opinion the handles pop out too much. everything else look really good, i love the way the ass looks lol

^^ I was going to say the same things. First I thought his redline was at 2.5k, then I thought maybe he revved it.

Looking good man! I noticed you have the same slight dimness at the 3K mark on your tach that I do. Did you use the Vamp Design kit as well?
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

Looks real good man. I had that same suspension set up on my old car and I loved it. It will settle slightly, so it ends up being a little more than 1.8", personally, I thought it was a perfect drop.

nice, clean CG you have there. my only suggestion would be to color match the handles (which has been mentioned a few times). they stand out just a bit too much. might also look good if you painted the black part of the taillights.

keep up the good work!

Noice... I like it a lot, really clean. I say get the mopar lip kit instead, and not go with the CF Srt4 hood... if you swap the engine, just get it cut a little underneath. I think the CF would throw off a very nice clean look you have going on.

Yep :thumbup: He lives here in Vegas and is really cool. I was installing my defroster light and it broke. He drove to meet up with me to give me a free replacement and gave me a ultra bright license plate light for the trouble. I ended up putting it in my dome light. Very cool guy, and sweet SRT-4.

Yeah I hate the handles. I get upset every time I see a gold SXT with the color matched handles. If I ever catch any on ebay or something, I'll grab them. Also what is "CG" I've never heard of that before...

I got mine from topbrakes.com , just put in your make and model and mine will be the first rotors under SP Performance. only $132 :D

I think it's the perfect drop too. How long do you think it will take to settle completely?

I thought about it. The mopar kit does look pretty good, but I'm gonna keep the stock look as far as ground effects and stuff for now. I really love the SRT-4 sideskirts. Maybe srt-4 skirts and a mopar front and rear one day. But I need to save my money for some power, this is taking too long!

As for the hood...I donno I love the look! Here's a PS I made not too long ago.

CG is Cinnamon Glaze.

Even though I've always been a 1st gen guy until now, I think TNK is right about the '03-'05 being a slightly different color than CG.


The car does look pretty sharp, and I agree 100% that painted handles and a Mopar lip kit on that unit would be tits!
