Your car looks really clean! You've got a great platform to build on.

its pretty straight forward only problem you might have is getting in to the rear strut top mount
might have to remove the panel, **** i just pulled it up to fit the ratchet.

BC's huh hope you ordered the ultra slammed one been hear they dont go that LOW on the rear

The EZ's look good. Bags would be awesome but they are too expensive for a good setup.

If you plan on slamming the car on wide wheels/tires I would highly recommend going with a custom set of BC's. The EZ's were fine when I ran 18"s but when I moved up to 20"s I had a lot of rubbing issues. The EZ's are too soft for me to ride low and now I have to sell them to buy BC's.

It seems that stiffer springs may not be enough. I'm going to order custom BC's with higher spring rates and Swift Springs since my setup was too aggressive.

If your wheels aren't overly aggressive you could get some stiffer springs for your EZ's and be alright.
