Thumbs up Looks Good!

The drop makes a big difference. Where'd you get the grill?

Thanks fellas, just got the car lowered yesterday, definitely happy with the drop.

@Rykster- I bought the grille from Sewell. I was planning on using my old emblem, but there was too many dent and scrathes, so i have a new one on the way.

Did you figure out the clunking issue?

BCR's, They ride like butter at this height and stock tires. It'll probably change after the 19's and low pro tires. I did get an alignment, the front ended up being -1.8 camber, zero toe all around, and the rear they said it was within factory specs, whatever that is.

Same as you, remember they sent me the wrong kit.

Your clunking problem might be with the swaybar, try tighting the bracket that holds the bushing. Hold up, were you having this problem before the sway bar install?
