if you ask, you shall receive.

toeb: nice work on the install!! thats pretty low with the bushings. when i installed the air and left the bushings in.. the car sat SUPER high. but all the bushings are removed in the rear as of yesterday.

car info. gs400. 19x9 +24 19x10+20 with a extra 15mm spacer all around. Tires: 245 30 or 35 (dont remember)fronts and 275-30 for the rear. fender shaved, pulled (pretty much a flare). UAS kit with Bilstein sports Struts. any other info just ask.

here are some pics.
i need to get a smaller exhaust pipes. rear of the car is almost resting on exhaust pipes.


keep in mind i ONLY worked on the rears.. fronts are still kinda high.






Drive height.


My main goal for this was to drive at a low height and park even lower
(if there are typos please excuse me, didnt bother proof read)

Now Im going to be using my stock struts with the UAS kit, not my HKS's. When I called UAS they said that they need my HKS's so they could make a bracket. I said nevermind, I'll go ahead and use my factory struts. Will I still be able to get as low as lightwave???

hehe. thanks guys.
i like the 2 tone look for now. i think its different.

as for being able to go low. my rears are on bilstein Sports and i am custom making some brackets to replace the lower spring (bag) mount for my car to sit about another 1 inch lower. these pieces will just slide right onto the strut. getting CNC done as we speak.

BippuPxr: set up a hangout day! and i will be there.
