Re: Out with the Old in with the New

nice rims!

look into H&R springs or Eibach Pro's. the H&R's have a bit more drop in the front and the Eibachs are a slight lower with great ride. i got the Pro's with 18's for a reference, but i would have rather gotten the H&R's after i learned more about them...

Re: Out with the Old in with the New

i got mine from wheeldiscount.com for $700 for 17's, 205/40/17 all 4 wheels and tires mount balanced and shipped. I wanted 215 45s but they were out of the good tires in that size, they only had some crappy of the wall brand that looked like crap. so i got these. how much did you pay for your lowering springs, how much does it lower it and how low can you drop on 17s without getting a camber kit and shit.

Re: Out with the Old in with the New

I have a set of Eibach Pro Kits I've been trying to sell for like 5 years. Well, I havent been trying that hard obviously... You dont have your profile filled out so I dont know where you are, but if its not too much to ship you're welcome to them for a decent price.

Dont bother with the camber kit, just have the toe set to zero as soon as you install the springs. See the thread in the performance section for more info on that.

Re: Out with the Old in with the New

Looks like 16 for shipping. I'll take 100 for the springs. If you're interested, shoot me a PM.

Re: Out with the Old in with the New

I got them b/c im painting my car in a few months and i like the way the black makes the silver 5star stand out. the tires are a little to narrow for them rim, they fit just not quit wide enough for my tast. i got 204/40s but next time i'll get 215 45s
