I think they are very well made. I went with Megan because I wanted rubber joints instead of heim joints like on Figs and Battle Version because they are quieter. They have plenty of adjustability too.

I like that Fabulous grille too. Keep up the good work man!
Thanks! I've always thought the SP1 was such a plain looking wheel but I think it fits my car perfectly.

Thanks

I'm running -5 all around for now. I think I can get -6 if I play with the eccentric bolts in the front. The rear can get way more but I just want it to match all around.

Yeah, I thought the SP1 would look weird on the LS so I went with Works instead.

The brushed aluminum finish makes your wheels stand out a lot and look amazing on your car.

Look to see where it's banging and drill a pilot hole to the top.

Then use that hole you made to guide the holesaw down.

Use some sandpaper and smooth out the edges. I made a slight mistake so I had to touch up a few spots.

I covered the top with some tape and sprayed it with some paint so it won't rust. Then I used touchup paint for the top. I'm looking for a rubber gasket that fits the hole to keep the dust out. It's nice because the LS has engine covers to hide the holes. I have no more UCA banging problems.

I should have more updates coming soon.
When doing this... does this weaking the body of the car at all? I want to do this but I am worried about ruining the strength of the frame/body by drilling a hole next to where all contact from the suspension to the car is absorbed.

If not, then this shall be my new project this week!

Installed my Junction Produce Type 2 quad exhaust. I had to cut the stock bumper to fit them.
