i was wondering if i install eibach with ground control how much will it drop?
and is the best way to go? i have done many thread reading and just want to see a picture with 19's installed with that setup. I want to see how the car sits.

The point of Ground Control sleeves is that the ride height is adjustable, so the answer to, "How much will it drop?" is, "How much do you want it to drop?"

This is the look I am going for, but I am going to tweak it just a bit to make my car different. I already have all the equipment on my car to mimic this look, I just need to get the next size smaller sidewall tires and I will be set. Although I don't know if I will ever go quite that low in the front, maybe 1/8"-1/4" higher...If everything goes as planned, I will have my car done by the first or second week in April...:devil:

By the way, here is a link to my pix...I have all the parts on my car that you were requesting pix of.

I actually really like the tan interior. With the bottom half and the dash being black, it creates kindof a two-tone look, which is cool. Also, a big thing I have noticed is that dust doesn't show up on the tan at all. I have a TBSS with a black interior and it always looks much worse compared to my V. The one huge downside though is that I have had some stupid techs put greasy fingerprints on my interior door sills and roof, but they can be brushed and cleaned off.

The polished aluminum wheels are the biggest pain the ass ever. I don't polish them very often, except before a car show or something, so usually they don't look very shiny. That is one of the biggest reasons for me wanting to get them powdercoated, so that I won't have hardly any maintenance to do to keep them looking good.

Never thought I would see a V owner with those sticker, magnet, fake vent holes things on the front fender. All you need now is the bling sticker stating what size your rims are.

Okay, let me stop. Not trying to be mean I just don't think they belong on a V ( or any car). You are in a different class from the Tahoe's and 80's Chevrolets with 24" rims.

A lot of people on this forum feel very strongly about the fender vent decals. I actually like them, and the way I have my car set up currently, they match the lit bits of chrome (and polished wheels) well, but since I am going to be blacking my car out, they are coming off, never to be stuck on again.
