Thanks man. Im going to drive it tomorrow. The front tires look weird the way they settled on the cement. It need to move a few feet to get them looking straight. They are all 255s now I want to go to 275s on rear. There's plenty of room.

I'm normally not a fan of newer wheels on older cars, but this really works! Nice choice!

And they're big, but not pimp blingy, which is nice.

That's what I wanted to hear Mark. Are those springs stiff? I put big bars on it from a limo and it still floats on the highway, it still needs tightened up in the corners.

sprints

Yes bro, they are pretty stiff. It put me on the bumpstops up front so i replaced them with a set of coned style like used on the Extreme S10 trucks, (direct bolt on part available at your local gm dealer)

Now it rides really low and good although i will admit, you occasionally hit the right bump and it will bottom out hard. 95 % of the time it still is very comfortable to drive,,,,until you hit the wrong spot that is... would nt change it back for nothing however!

I still had really good ground clearance until i changed over to afterburner headers and full american thunder flowmaster exhaust,(impala ss kit)

The H pipe made it necessary to leave the pipes a little lower to keep from rubbing the driveshaft which compromised ground clearance. If i am careful about approach angles into and out of parking lots and such, it isnt bad. Scrapes a little but hasnt hurt the exhaust any to date and its been on there for about a year and a half now. I drive it every day.

Its been to Ocean City Maryland and several long trips lowered and hasnt been bad to live with.

I really like the Sprints to recap,

i paid $100 for this car four years ago and positively abuse it. Even with the lowering,rims,window tint,audio system and exhaust, i am still under $3k and it gets attention when i drive it.

Pulled in to RFK stadium one night to watch the Cowboys kick some red azz and the big bro directing traffic was like,"come on in big tyme, come on in." I was a proud poppa.

Have a tune on it now compliments of Rocco and next step is a impala ss disc brake posi rear swap that i have been sitting on for nearly a year now.

Then i want to get a repaint.

If you send me a text to my cell i will send you a couple pics of it lowered in that color scheme if you want to see it. I dont know how to post it here or i already would have.
