Oh and don't go by my pics at all, in need of new ones big time.

I did the finger test and took out a tape measure, rear 1 finger (3/4") front about 2 and half fingers (2"). So thats my gaps with the Tanabe GF210 springs.

Looks awesome man. thumbsup

Hey guys/girls... when I got my sportlines I was told by Eibach that there was no "settly time" so it was safe to go get an aligmnent right away so I did, the next day. Now it seemed wierd to me that there was no settle.

Now I'm thinkin my alignment is probably off cause of the apparent settle time which would put it out again confused

actually i had another question... whenever you raise ur car.. the aftermarket springs get decompressed.. and i know that when you drop it back down it takes a while for the springs to compress again.. and does this mean that they have to take 2 weeks again to settle?
