I interpreted taking a torch to my springs as just sarcastic input, nothing more. However it is scary to think there are those that attempt that kind of thing....luckily Im cheap, but Im not easy.

I run eibach/bilstein on my Porsche and, while a completely differnt driving experience than the F, I do think its worthy of a try on the F as well. Thanks Sam, appriciate that input.

Matter of fact the input on this thread has been exceptional, appriciate the time and patience of all contributors.

I remember a neighbor who had a shop do this very same thing to his year old Supra. But it was 1983.

That looks pretty good Sam. Im not sure if those spacers on the rear will work out on mine, I can barely get a finger between the tire and fender lip. Love that it kicked the rears out but not sure Ill have the clearance to run them...

You car looks great, and I love the fitment of your wheels 👍👌👊 if you keep your rear oem springs it shouldn't change anything as long as you dont trim your bumb stops
Your front should not have any issues .... What are your wheels specs?
