Why not start a build thread, once the build has started???

sometimes one simply cannot wait for the build to start, and needs to share right away. i understand the excitement.

what model vossens? sizing?

But we should get at least ONE picture... of the car or at least the springs he buys (which is the exact same old set of df210s I have in my garage collecting dust) bust something visual should be posted... not a "Stay Tuned"

Its only because I got blue ***** thats all... haha sounds like a good build, but for a better build Id do coilovers (like I just did) speaking from experience, those Tanabes arent gonna drop enough to do those Vossens justice... spend the extra few hundred and get a better and more adjustible suspension.

if he goes 20" vossens i think the mild drop the tanabe will give should look decent.

Wats funny is when I did this yesterday I was tryna load pics up from my phone and for some reason wouldnt do it so I have to use the computer tonight so when I get home im goin to plug up the PC and do it like that. So by tonight ill have my pics of the parts im bout to put in. And of my car stock.
So the stay tuned is jus temperary.
But my question is why do u have Df210s in the garage collecting dust? Why not install them or sell them?
