Default Completed Coilover Install

So it has been about 2 months since I purchased My BC Coils from a friend of mine, and didnt have the time to put them in. I thought of taking it to a shop but they were quoting me about $400 to install So I decided to take a day off work and finally do it myself. Here are the results! My car is an 08 IS250 AWD. Currently, I am 24.7" ground to fender, and my vibrations are very minimal. For anyone with an AWD, If you set your dampers to a harder setting, it actually reduces the vibration / wobble. Anything below 24.5" and it starts to get pretty ****ty.

BEFORE: Terrible wheel gap.

Cool man, nice work.

I always a believer in doing most car related stuff myself. In the event that stuff doesn't work to my liking, or gets messed up, I can always be the one to blame and not to mention you kind of know what to look for when going back under.
