Default My ufc20 build(more like keeping it clean and simple)

Hi guys, ive been doing some progress of my ls400, and im almost complete. Ive recently installed my megan(ez's) and i must say, i love the ride. Its more solid but still comfortable at the same time. It was also an really easy install. I also had to change my tranny mount, and it really makes a difference if ur old one is busted. Mine was in two pieces lol

The pics are progressing from stock to modded. Right out the box the rear height was perfect for the time being, but the front was a 4 inch drop, so i was tucking stock tire size and i couldnt turn my wheel, so i raised it up 2in, and im happy with the look for stock wheels. Wheels will be coming soon. I'm doing test fits this week, so stay tuned for pics.

Looking great!

I've had my Megan EZ's now for 5 months, and no signs of abnormal ride quality or wear. Great bang for the buck.

Eager to see what wheels you do.

alright i got a new batch of pics of my test fits. my front is sticking out more than i would like it, but i think a lil camber and fender roll and pull should fix that. The rear i think will be fine with just a roll and a lil camber as well.

Btw im going to use a smaller tire, the tires in this pick were 245's and were only used to see my clearance with my current drop.

Smaller tires & fender roll should take care of it. The natural camber should take care of the rest.
Don't do any fender rolling until you put the smaller tires on. Oh ya, don't forget to cut the tabs before you roll them too.

^^+1 I didn't cut the tabs on mine because I didn't know about them and it slightly dimpled when I rolled the fender. It isn't very noticable but if you do cut the tabs you wont have to deal with that minor imperfection. The build is looking good so far!
