Update with Hotchkis Springs [PICS]

Finally got some pics guys. Enjoy. My setup is the Hotchkis Springs, rear camber links and Tokico shocks. I don't have pics with the neons installed yet, as I am not finished with my project. And in case you didn't get to read the review thread about them (install and results) here is the link: Review


This is a before picture

WOW very nice...Are you glad you got the camber links as well? I've been thinking about Hotchkis and some say you need the camber links but others say you'll be fine without them... Again, it looks sweet dude thumbsup

I'm glad I waited for the camber links. I bought everything one at a time and put them all on at once. I figured if I want a quality suspension, I'll do what it takes, so I bought the links. They are not necessary, but recommended.

Next on the list: I am putting my neons on tomorrow. Then I am looking into the emanage.

Thanks for the inputs. I appreciate it.

I just got my alignment done at the local shop. How can it not fit on the alignment rack? Too low? If it is too low maybe you could get them to extend the bottom part of the ramp with some wood or something.

I don;t know how my car will look without the pimstripe. But it will definitely come off if I get vinyl.

Thanks for all the feedback guys. I appreciate the compliments.
