I installed my sprints yesterday morning. I like the stance of it, but I am less impressed with the ride. It feels like you are bottoming out the whole length of the road. But for $138 to my door, I can't complain too much.

Here are the pics, you will have to excuse my car being dirty, it rained yesterday.

Looks nice. In the pics where you can see the front of the car, it looks like the rear is lower than the front. It probably just looks that way to me though cause I'm used to the rake on my Hotchkis. It seems like you're going mod crazy lately!

I think your right...it does look a little saggy....did you position the rear springs right? I had my hotchkis turned the wrong way when I first put them in, and the rear was sitting the wrong height.....but if you like it low, I guess the sprints are the way to go....cuz it sure is LOW.

The back does look lower...or maybe it's just the pics :confused:

I dunno but I wouldnt want mine sitting lower in the rear...IMO, it needs to be even or have a lil rake.

Did you trim the front bump stops?
If not it is resting on those, I cut one set for my cousins 9C1 and it rides so much better.
On my other cousins car we just used the pancake style red ones.

yes, the rear is a tad lower than the front, but I have a trunk full of tools, the old springs, cases of soda (I own a vending machine) and of course the spare tire. I noticed that all most all of the sprints sag in the back. Trancemins sagged so he took out his spare to even it out. After awhile the front settle and the car evens out.

fester- i ordered the carpet, so I will get you my new interor pics as soon as it comes in

jimmer- Thats a good idea for the bumpstops, I think i will pick up a set.

Well the fronts will settle down some in about 500 or so miles....man that is low.... I like the racked look, but of course thats just my opinion. Looks good....
