Default Hellaflush

I recently bought my GS400 like a month ago. I just wanna do the usual mods to it. Slammed on 19's But... I want it hellaflush. I know most of you guys know what hellaflush is right. Anyways, First off I wanna buy Weds Kranze for my car. I wanna go super deep dish. I'm talking about negative off sets, front and back. It'll look crazy, however, Idk the step process to making the car the way I want it... helladumped

For suspension, I was thinking Stance GR plus... I wanna go really low, I had teins before on my other car, but I didn't really like the ride.

Peep the pics

Your gs is clean, ever thought about BC racing coilovers. I think it's good suspension.

Stance are really good coils that go real low.. but you will also need to shave roll and possibly pull your finders if you want nice wide wheels to sit flush.. you will also need to stretch tires to fit the wheels.. being hellaflush isn't just getting wheels and slamming the car with lots of negative camber.. it takes a lot of calcualtions of wheel size width/offset how low what kind of tires.. if its pulled or not. How much camber you want. But good luck!

what is hellaflushed and helladumped?

If you want a super deep dish wheel with negative offsets, then prepare to spend some more money. I really don't know how much negative offsets we are talking about here, but it will be at least a fender pull that you will need.

Hella....that term has gone nationwide. I remember living in the bay saying "hella" and nobody from Socal knew what the hell I was talking about.

Hellaflush and helladumped? I think you're going to have problems turning if you're planning on running on coilovers.

You can be flush and still drive around. Hell you can be hellaflush and still drive around. Its about how you mod your fenders and how bad the road condition is
