I thought some may like to see the difference of the two vehicles with and without the tow package. The package is factory installed, RPO code V4P, and includes heavier springs and shocks all around, and I think the sway bars may be heavier. I plan to measure the bars for comparison, but never remember to do it.

The stiffer springs cause the one car to sit a little lower by about 1.5 to 2 inches. I took some pictures today, unfortuately the lighting was late afternoon. I included a picture comparing of the wheels where the skirt cuts across abouve the center line. The shadows in that picture decieve the eye on where the skirt actually hits the wheel.

Hope your find this interesting.

One more picture to get a better perspective. Both cars are sitting side by side on the driveway with engines off. No, those aren't cool looking lights in the bumper. It's only the flash reflection.
