My BC coils arrive next week! This thread has me so excited now

Quick question... anything else I need to purchase beforehand to be ready for a quick install?

TIA

As far as being the lowest of the low...I know that myself on 20's and VIS25P on 18's are the lowest! I think Mashina is the lowest on 19's with his front lip almost scraping the floor but he has cups now. It all depends on where you are measuring. The front lip height or the fender/quarter panel.
You won't need anything else for your install.

I don't get it.
I don't know how you managed to tuck rear rim with only:
Fender rolling
Megans
Camber kit
Trimming of rear fender liner


You had to have had your rear fender pulled. Amongst other secrets... Just looks to damn good the way you're stanced NOT to have had heavey modification done.

Sick thread. I was just wondering with height like that and with stretched tires, would it be possible to scrape the rims itself while angling going up/down driveway? My new set of wheels are coming in soon, although I'm not that stretch, I'm always paranoid if that will happen. Anyone care to chime in?

I don't want to be an *** right now, but do we really need a new thread about this? I understand the fresh part thing, but does it really need it?

I can understand making a new thread about "2009 before and after" thread, but making a new thread of being low is just like making a new "Picture of your 2IS! RIGHT NOW" thread.

Rash come on man go with the flow... the reason I started this thread was to solve peoples curiousity and get out any questions that may need to be asked along the way... reason for this was when I purchased my 250 last may i had lots of questions and ran into dead ends with peoples responses and eventually found solutions from "doing **** my way" and a couple of members on here... some members responses are not very helpful and some just give there 2 cents just to get a post in lol (sad but true) but in all the this thread is to help all those who need guidance and whom have questions get them answered....


Special thanks to Sffd103 for being very informative as well... much appreciated...

Everybody else any questions I can help with I don't mind answering...
