**New wheels and drop before and after!**

Well I got the drop on the car last night, took about 2hrs 30min for all for springs (first time installing springs on a car). After I got the first front spring done and knew exactly what to do the install was smooth as can be. Well anyways enough talking ON WITH THE PICS!!!


Stock





New wheels








Wheels and drop










The springs will probably settle a little lower but I am very happy with the stance. I would have went out and put some effort into the photos but I wanted to use the same shots for all the pics to get an accurate perception of everything. I know someone is going to say "tint that bitch" and the itch to tint the car is there but I have had tint on all of my pervious cars and it has been nothing but problems from law enforcement (it is illegal afterall) Well anyways, let me know what you think! Comments and suggestions are always welcome!

Any tint on the front windows in IL is illegal and I don't like the looks of just the rears tinted.
