Worst statement evar. Is that why you've got 9" wheel gap after lowering? GTFO.

Looks bomb Manny. Drop the front moar!

Vice grips with a rag or towel would work fine. I might start rolling mines. They are starting to rust anyway.

Ouch.

Actually Gramps..the roads towards carlisle was pretty good and flat. well except one little bump there is rite in the middle of passing Dayton.but i should be ok.



Well im headed out to mess with the front coils.

It doesn't look right to me because the front wheel well is higher than the rear wheel well. Reminds me of the old Lincoln Town Cars with blown out air struts in the rear. Maybe once you lower the front more it will look better.

I know what you mean on the gap thing upfront.it didnt look good to me either.

Well see on the door moldings.i dont know yet.


Well the much anticipated pics.
This is what the final result is and will be for a while.
No more lowering unless i get 16s or something.

And i hate how the pictures do the ride height no justice..cause the car actually is really low and the bumper is like half a pop can from the ground. Tho i think this is really good slammedness for being on 17s.

Remove side moldings and vinyl eyelids, replace SRT spoiler with R/T spoiler and 17's with the stock 16's and it will be win.

Orrr you can just go wingless and throw a set of OEM style black housings on.

Did all my shit on $8.15 / hr, full time school w/ loans, and I think my shit is comin along pretty good with quality stuff.

Adam idk wtf ANF is, but you're a liar. You work with fucking ALF!


Just call me "dude".



Crystal - I thought the same thing about the Town Car look :rofl:

Manny - It looks good, but I know I'm gonna get flamed for this. I'm getting tired of the Supa Dump'd look people are going after. It's starting to just not look good to me anymore :sad: I thought it looked good an inch or so higher, but that's just me. And don't remove those door rub strips!
