It does sit a tad higher in the rear & as Hybrid stated its ebay coilovers on 3 blown tokico's & 1 tokico that has ZERO fluid left in it! It looks like the ass sits higher in the pic cause of the way it was parked,there's a lil hump/hill. I have a stock suspension from a 01' neon that'll be put on when im not bein lazy lol

do you ever have anything positive to say? if i cared about whether cutting springs were bad or not i would ask. but i dont give a shit soo... and please dont tell me that cutting springs will cause a car to crash and cause a pileup.


sorry for crapping up your thread nick

Yes, I actually do have good things to say. In fact, read above when I said I like the fucking car before jumping on my shit. Fact is CUTTING SPRINGS IS FUCKING STUPID! You should know this by now, you seem like an intelligent person.

Now get back on the fucking driveway and work on this kids car instead of jumping on me over fucking nothing.

Please dont cut the springs.... only springs i ever cut were in my 1gn when i was doing my srt swap... i knew i was getting coilovers and needed my fenders rolled so i cut em to where i wanted the car to sit with coilovers... but it NEVER saw the road like that.... cut them and bad things will happen...

The Trans cooler is leaking jus a tad...you can see it in the pic,its leakin from the bottom right corner...Any reccomendations as to a good one 2 replace it with? That one is a or is supose 2 be a B&M :dunno:

Image

Image

Went to the Junkyard last weekend 2 look for a passenger axle...found a 01 LX with some nice wheels...picked the wheels up for 45 a peice! the front 2 need tires...

I put the stock suspension on it for now. It sits like a monster truck LOL but it rides smooth which is nice for a DD. On to the pics of the wheels

Image


Plan on powdercoating them sometime soon...Any input as to a color?
Image

Next weekend im pickin up a SRT-4 Rear disc swap :twisted: so those puny drums will be goin bye bye :thumbup:

Got the axle replaced. Went and got a new one at the parts store for 25$ more then what the junkyard wanted for it & the store has a 1 year warranty. Replaced the passenger side front LCA aswell as the balljoint was leakin all the grease out of it. Also replaced the front sway with a SRT-4 aswell.

Its a slow process i know but its getting there 1 part errr paycheck at a time haha

theyre Niche wheels,my mom hella loves those rims on it...i cant stand um haha. Theyre ridiculously heavy.the Enkies are wayyyy lighter. If i were to go after the ol school look id like into some 16inch Cragar SS`s :D

anybody have any ideas as to what color the wheels should be? I like the gold/bronze color of Sullivan wheels in his sig above. What kind of rims are those Sullivan?

looks good... much better than drums! ya i think the color you have would look good with some gold rims if not something that sticks out, idk i think the lip on yours helps out and they look great now... but you should lower it it looks 10x better...( get some tien stechs they were a dream come true with an srt rear sway bar)

FINALLY got new tires for the rims :twisted: so i was able to throw the front ones on. It sits like a 4x4 i kno i kno....But itll sit like that til i can afford some C.O.

All 4 rims FINALLY mounted!!
Image

Got some kick ass Gold PowderCoated rear LCA with urathane bushings from Hybridsrt2001 & installed um along with the Hotchkis sway from my 2005.
Image

Also got some ACR door panels from Hybrid(Sean) aswell which is a HUGE improvment over the ugly brown ones,plus the passenger door grabhandle was broken on the old one.
Image

Will be awhile until i can afford to powdercoat the wheels,need 2 pay off some bills and then i can play around the car some :thumbup:
