Here you go, about 2 inches up front and just under 2 in back.



That's My Housing Complex in the Background. I have some pics of ti when I was dropped about the same as Skuce too. Looked better, but a bit harder on the driveability.

i like that^^^ what springs?
Ground Control Coilovers with the standard Eibachs that they send out. Very nice, adjustable, and not too stiff. I've never caught a complain about ride quality from a normal passenger. Only the car people I know notice that there is a big difference. Oh yeah I used hte ZX2 Struts too, but htose don't affect the height, just have shorter rods to prevent punching the strut housing out.

Oh yeah, click my sig and check out the pics on my cardomain... there are some from when I first lowered it and had a 2.5 drop all around... looked great, but speedbumps around here were owning my car and I hated having to take them at angles.

Is that a carbon Fibre hood?

Nope, just a blcak primed Tracer Hood... I am thinking of color options for the car and happened to have black primer sitting around my garage, so I hit hte hood up, it was "Real Teal" before and it looked funny on my car, I didn't actually do the whole underside, just around the edges.... it looks kinda funny when I pop the hood to work on the car. I think I might end up giving the car a "panda" paintjob like the old AE86's.... My friend Steve yould love that... he's a panda fanatic. Anyways, moral of the Story is... I have a Tracer Hood!!! (which feelssurprisibgly lighter than my Stock one did) I can lift it without much effort whereas the Scort hood actually needed a bit of muscle to hold up when I was pulling it off. Although the top skin doesn't feel as thick on the Tracer hood, it takes less pressure ot push it down.

and misfit i dont know that i would call that a 2 inch all around drop... i would say more like 1 in the rear and 2 in the front... if you look at mine the rear i have 1 inch drop springs and i sit lower, but you sit lower in the front than me... the pros to coilovers eh? on mine i kinda dislike the huge fender gap difference from front to rear but, whatever gets me through the twisties faster.

Umm... I never said it was 2 all around in that pic. I said, "Under 2 in the back" I dropped it originally 2.5 all around... then raised the back by just under 1 incho for clearance and the fron about half an inch.

If you'd like I can get a closer pic of each fender and see how the rar tire is tucking rubber... and I can barely get my finger between the front tire and the fender. I would love to drop it back down but until California outlaws Speedbumps that ain't gonna happen. (and I'm sure those damn hills aren't going anywhere)
