    But the view from the front looks good with the stance it has now.

    Time to open the headlights and mute / tint the chrome in them a little bit? (since everything else is smoked/tinted)
    Thank you for the compliment!!
    I've been hitting every little bump I can find just to make sure I don't have any issues. so far, so good. Yup, the front windshield is tinted 20% & the rest of the car is double 5%. I am considering the headlight mod. I think it would Definately complete the look.

    dont think 22s are too big, think their just perfect. 24s fit but i dont like the ride any rougher than what its riding like now.

    and i miss my old pearl 2000 dts on vogues, i wonder can i pull off 18 inch oem wheels and vogues on my sts, then i would say f 22s and 20s lol

    Is this really how your car sits with just the D3 lowering springs installed? Did you have to get the bypass program deal to modify the rear self leveling device?

    If that's the case then I might not need to go with the universal air struts :/ That's plenty flush for me...it would be different with 20's tho...

    Lol, Yes it is. On my 05 the rear shocks are the internally valved leveling shocks. I put the springs in & the car didnt lower in the rear, I was completely baffled because I knew it didnt have MRC & I didnt see any lines or wires going to the shocks so I thought I was good. I called D3 & they told me I had to use the adapter plates that came with the springs on the rear shocks. Basically it raises the shock up higher into the top mount so that the shock thinks the car is at the correct height. I absolutely Love it & the car still rides the same unless I get a little aggressive!! Lol

    Those white gfg wheels On that white sts are nice. I have some chrome Asanti's I want painted diamond white sitting in my garage

    ----------

    In my opinion 22's fit perfectly. The ride is a bit more rough but it's manageable. 24's are too big. 22's barely change the height of the vehicle and it looks normal. I kinda like when my 22's are on because I don't have to worry about pulling off the black rubber piece on the bottom of the front bumper when I park, as I have done over and over again with my factory wheels. What is that piece called I need a new one, mines is torn and chewed up from parking lot humps. Lol

    Nope, didnt need to, but Funny you ask. Cause it is going into my buddy's custom body shop next week. Flaring out a 1/2 inch on each rear wheel well so I can fit a 305 or 315 under the back & also finishing the center exhaust bezel & smoothing & color-matching the black panel where the old exhaust cutouts were located. Pics will Definately follow!!!

    Nope, didnt have to. But, funny that you ask. It is actually going into my buddy's Custom Shop next week. We are going to flare out the rear wheel wells 1/2 inch so I can fit a 305 or 315 under the back. Also going to finish the center exhaust trim & smooth & color match the black panel where the original exhaust cutouts were located. Pics will most Definately follow!!!!

    I def need some 305 or 315's in the back hell i had 295 but dummies gave me 285 kumhos when i took it to the shop. I think 285s can go on my front wheels since the 265s are still streched a tad but my backs are noticeably streched and belts keep breaking on the inside of the tire and this is because of the severe strech and i asked for road hazard but they said cant get it unless I asked before I paid for them. I'm just gonna buy a whole new set of tires eventually because I'm sick of cursing people out about what they think will work on my car, they dont listen and try and give you what they have in stock. Only good thing is my oem tires cost more than my 22 tires but I'm back on factory wheels until a carshow comes up, my other gfg's for my gtp would look nice on my sts except for their 20s =(

    I find anything larger than 20's make the ride ruff and limmits the weight you can put in the back seat (even with self leveling suspension). but.......22 adn 24 sure look sweet lol.
