ASA JH9 18x8" with 245/45ZR18 tires. Eibach Pro Kit.

A few pics using a video camera. Terrible, I know.









Next up is 20% tint all around and painting calipers silver or black.

That is a very clean setup you have. I usually dig the larger rims, but those are sharp looking rims for the CTS.

Is the eibach spring conversion easy to do and did you have to get the front end re-aligned? How harsh did it affect the ride?

The car looks really nice and clean the way you have it set up.

Thanks for the comments, guys (and gals?).

Well, I did not do the spring work, I had a National Tire & Battery shop do it. Took them 4 hours since they had to remove the shocks and stuff. I don't think you can do it unless you REALLY know what you are doing. They cautioned that unless the car is fairly new, removing the struts to get access to the springs can literally break the brushings and have to be replaced. Luckily, my car is pretty new and none broke.

Ride quality was noticeable, bumps are felt much more and cornering is stiffer-feeling, which is a plus.
