    It's all subjective man.

    I'm into American trucks (Ford, Chevy, Jeep) and some people don't see the point in lifts. I like functional lifts for wheeling; better clearance on trails.

    As for lowering; not a fan of low riders my self, but I'm not one to bag on anybody for spending their own money how they see fit. However, I am genuinely interested if lowering does anything good for performance? Is it purely for show or is there functional benefit?

    that white

    very nice. great stance too. i prefer nothing less than tuckage on a beautiful wheel combo such as this. mine is a clear illustration of that.

    Not really, -2 is still within factory spec. It is the toe that effects the tires.

    Exactly, do you mind posting your alignment specs?

    Was behind this guy in a slammed G37 coupe. The douchetard was slowing down and swerving around every manhole cover and bump. It was ridiculous.

    My '09 V is the first car in 20 years I haven't lowered, so I appreciate a nicely stanced car.

    But when you're going for look over function and it looks like the top of your tires are your bumpstops, that's annoying.

    I think this set up is ideal. I cannot believe the coupe can fit 345's. Hat's off to you for working through this.

    I still have a great amount of shock travel for street use, my girl drives this car sometimes, and she has no problems at all, the 21" wheels kill the gap between the wheels and the car making it look lower then it really is, I have a lot more room on the KWs to go lower. Daily driver for me, I live in Los Angeles, no problems at all.
