Excellent pics! I died laughing at the damn bolt... just figures something like that would get in the way of a perfectly flawless install.

Car looks nice too! By the way, I'm getting springs, and it's a toss up between the pro and the sportlines. My car has the stock sideskirts with MUD FLAPS. I'm concerned the flaps would be too low with the sportlines frown

The attached picture is my stock ride height (which seems unusually low for some reason).

Done! You've single handedly decided for me... Thanks smile

I think I can take the flaps off if they cause problems... Not sure if the front flaps are molded onto the sideskirt or not.

Have you noticed any camber problems? That was one thing I was worried about getting a 2" drop. I didn't want to have to shell out more cash to get a camber kit.

sweet bro! wait until those sportlines settle...installs on the front springs were easy and the only problems on the rear are the bolts and bending the rear strut to get the entire shock assembly out, other than that, simple!

Yea that bolt is a piece of shit isnt it rofl I started with an impact and it didnt work so switched it up w/ a 20" breaker and some WD and it came off like a hot knife through butter thumbsup For the Pro kit, it looks sweet, just enough of a drop to be noticed and not too much in order to drive on Michigan roads thumbsup + the kit looks baller w/ the brand new 19" ADR M Sports, they take up the gap like a huge drop but w/o the real rough ride of both rims and giant drop.
P.S. ride looks great w/ the drop thumbsup
