Nice! The Black roof looks pretty dope. Any other pics where is is easier to see?

Also with the lowering of your STS, How is the ride? I just put 20" on my 05 STS AWD. It still rides great, maybe better but the gap on above the back tire is killing me! It just looks too high. I'm thinking of lowering but Im scared it is going to kill the smoothness of the ride.

Honestly i do not feel much of a difference after lowering it. You actually feel more of a difference going to larger wheels with smaller tires. but again no difference its actually very comfortable.

That looks amazing! Is that the lowered height after just the D3 springs?

actually no thats not the lowered height just after the springs. My buddy owns a suspension shop and we had the d3 springs slightly compressed. Also removed the self leveling sensors in the rear. The ride is still very comfortable and the handling is great....just a tad bit bumpier but thats what you normally get with lowered vehicles the lower you go anyways. I love the look and get a lot of compliments.

Wanna sell your factory springs?


I'm looking for a set of used springs... I think I'm gonna try to slam the piss outta mine.

did you have the fenders rolled? almost looks like it? would you have had rubbing issues if you didnt roll them?

Yes the 5x114.3 will work. Its only .7 of a mm off but it fits.

If it's not right, it's wrong.

Are looks more important than safety?

Does anyone you care about ever drive the car?

Im not stupid to think that looks are more important. But if i didnt think it was safe i would not put them on there. I did my research. There is no shaking or shimmer what so ever on the drive. Yes my wife drives the car as well. Obviously i wouldnt do it if i didnt think it was safe.
