Got the trim finished up. Painted the chin spoiler and blacked out the center metallic charcoal.

Thanks! Still up in the air (no pun) about lowering the rear. It's kinda growing on me. "The Wedge"

Looks like I am gonna dig into the rear this weekend. I'm getting bored already, so I'll keep tinkering til it sells.

Just out of curiosity how did you lower the front and how do you intend to lower the rear, I want to lower mine to fit the new 18" rims I got and I am not decided yet as to how to go about it. I want cheap but nice if that is possible... never is usually.... peace

For the front, I just pulled the spring out, and cut off 3 coils. Nothing like free! I can't get it to bottom out and it rides great. Little more bouncy than stock, but not bad at all. It is a little too low for everyday, any road driving, so I think 2 would be a good comprimise.

The "wedge" look is cool, but having a hug gap in the wheel well sorta spoils it. I'd lower it until the gap is even all the way around... it should still give the wedge style with the front as low as it is.

Haven't done it yet. Got a few things cooking. I picked up a spare set of rear struts that I will try it out on, in case I go too low. I am supposed to be on vacation the week after the 4th. Maybe I can get some things done around here!
