Well, fordgt08 wasnt any indication of you being a stang fan/owner lol. Nice build thus far man. P.S just giving you a quick heads up you where selling your rear gfx lip. Make the price more intriguing. Sewell.com has that piece painted to match which the color is spot on at the same pr. If your car was starfire pearl or ultra sonic blue those are three stage colors $$$. Anyways keep up the good work man and Ive heard nothing but good things on the megan ez coils. Check out the classifieds.

What do you think about the BC racing coil overs? I know those are much more expensive right?

Honestly I am waiting for them to come in still lol. I had the custom spring rate 12/10 and upgraded to swift springs. I also went with the spc front and rear camber kit. For just the coilovers your looking at about 995 from circuitmotorsports great vendor. I talked to Tristan about the megans vs the bc he told me bc is the way to go. Alot of people go with megan because of the cost and thats not taking away from the quality of their product cause its still a solid product. I only went with bc because they're solid company and every major alignment and guy who ive spoken with who have owned tien, to megan have told me if you got the extra money to go with bc.

It will be awhile till I buy mine. Currently I'm on f-sport springs but my front end is high. I have other things I want to do before coil overs. I live in Texas with a bunch of construction and messed up roads anyway so I'm in no rush lol
