    Looks very good. I suggest tinting your windows. As for the drop, I think it will just set it off more. The car already is lifted higher in the back, so a 1" drop will help ALOT! Any one care to Photoshop this?

    I would never trust a + size tire for any long trip.

    Looks better than I expected in white.

    Take care with your lowewring project; these cars all have automatic leveling systems! If you have MRC, there's a different system. D3 is spendy but know their stuff.

    That looks REALLY good. So how did the ride change from the 20's going to the 22's? I have been looking at 20's & 22's but afraid the ride quailty will be horrible with the 22's. Let us know how it rides...thanks!

    Well i really had no problems when i had the 20's. Of course the bigger you go the more you have to sacrifice on the drive. It is a lil more bumpier BUT not to the point where i cant enjoy it. Really no complaints on my side. The ride is still comfy and luxurious. And of course you always have an eye out for those potholes.

    Re: New 22" wheels on my baby

    How about letting me know offsets and tire sizes... I'm looking at some 20" kmc's now but your ride looks sick on 22'. I was a little leary about running the black face wheel with chrome lip on my white sts, but now I'm sure it will look good.

    look way better than your ghetto wheels from before, but still looks like its 10 feet in the air and those wheels are just too big.

    Your right the rims from before did suck. Thats why i got these and really in person they arent too big. I ordered the D3 springs and it should sit perfectly removing the gap between the well and tires. Springs should be on in a few days.
