Thanks dude! I try lol.
A word of advice if you do try it. I had more luck lining the lip up using the existing holes where the fender guards bolt up closest to the front (after removing the factory bumper guard). I tried using the existing "center hole" on the bumper matching it with the center hole on the lip but it pulled too much and looked funny. The center needs to be mounted a little further back than that existing hole. Just my opinion from troubleshooting it.

That is the perfect complement to the front end of that model. Loving that drop as well. I would love to drop my '99 but I don't think my 20"s would agree. Do you have any tire wear issues with it being dropped?

I'd say I have minimal tire wear for the very moderate amount of camber, moderate tire stretch and alignment. I run a 225/35 on a 9" and 245/35 on 10". I get about a year and a half or more out of a set of tires. I flip them about every 6 months and run my stock wheels in the winter months. Not too bad, I'd say. I know a lot of honda and nissan guys that run through tires every few months and Idk how they can afford it. lol

Is this the lip you bought? Don't want to get one that is super thin. The one you got looks thick and beefy.

Taffy, a year and a half is relative. Do you drive 10k miles in that time or 60k miles?

I do 1500 miles a month on my setup. Just put new tires on 2k miles ago, well see how they do.

Nichles3, yes, that looks like the one I bought. I think it is more the angle of the pic than anything.

Greg5OH, that is with me driving approximately 20k miles a year.

Taffy, thanks for the reply and the details. In my opinion these cars beg for a nice subtle front lip.
