Default Official Ray's Gram Light FXX57x J5 Coilovers

Ok so I finally got to post some pics of the new wheels and the coilovers, the first pic was taken by a friend and others are clearly me. My review on the coilovers, they are very well made and although they have a reputation in Korea I had not heard of them. I will say these coilovers are excellent and I had some rubbing issue's which have been fixed and now the ride is perfect no bouncing around just perfect ride and the AVS works with no warning lights. I would like to add that anyone thinking about these coilovers should get them, most coilovers are better than lowering springs but these just have a good balance they are in that same league as Tein in my view and trust me I have tested this no bottoming out and no noises.

Looks like you have fat people in the back, too low for my tastes. Thanks for telling us about the coilovers though.

Looks sweet man! Very nicely done.

What tire sizes did you go? I went with 245/20/35. 275/20/30 and rub in the front with Tanabe springs.

Since you blacked out the chrome on the grille surround, I think your car would flow better if you did the same with the window surround. Gloss black window surround would match your Gram Lights and wrapped roof too.

I see you, sweet. Don't forget to apply a couple of coats of H2 to those wheels.

Lol yes I actually thought about this last week, should have done it before they went on the car, most likely they will get done around winter when I take them off. For now the hydro-pro will have to do.
