Veilside
what does every1 think about the veilside 1 kit and the FFGT kit on the celi n the celi being daily driven. I personally LOVE tasty tasty both kits but i dun wanna end up scraping everywhere. Is it that bad? i dun plan on lowering the car, but do plan on gettin 17/18 inch rims. Is the kit able to handle the stock 15s well or should i get rims be4 the kit?? confused

kit is daily drivable except..
the front bumper can be a b*tch, it hits the curbs very easily if you dont go at an angle and you cant drive to fast on bumpy roads or your suspension will make ur car hop and kit will hit floor, i would suggest the rims before kit thumbsup

if you get rims, get 18's and only lower an inch

it's not that hard driving with it, just be smart and know where you can or cannot go...
if all your roads are mostly shitty or have big slopes/hills, then the front bumper is not the right choice

Billy had the kit... so his above statement is probably the one to listen to.

I would offer though... if you get 17 or 18 inch rims, you NEED to lower the car or it'll look flat stupid. Get the TRD springs, they lower it the least of any I know of.

VS is driveable, but like already mentioned you gotta go on an angle on steep banks & just use common sence. It's gonna look dumb having 18" wheels, a kit, and no drop. Go with a 225/40/18 tire & a 1" drop.
