Finally, I get to see the stock 17" on a drop. Thanks, and it looks great!

I'm sold on the stock rims and the drop. I still think I'll be picking up the H & R's though.

   Question: Is there retaining bolts to keep the spring in place, if you get the car air born?

There is no need for them. The front uses a coilover shock setup, and the rears won't come out unless you remove the bolt from the lower suspension arm.

wow thats great looking, did it improve the handling? and did you change the sway bars too. I need details, all help is appreciated.
[/quote]

Thanks for the compliment. Handling is greatly improved. Body roll is controlled better, brake dive is HUGELY reduced, and the rear drops MUCH less on acceleration. All these things make it feel a lot quicker overall, as it reacts to inputs faster, and surprisingly the ride hasn't changed much either.

Right now it's on the stock swaybars, but the new rear bar will be here Tuesday. I ended up changing my order from the 24mm Progress bar to the 27mm Racing Beat bar. That should make it a whole new car.

HWM3,
          The car looks real nice.   8)
           Your pictures are great too. 
         Where about's were they taken?

Thanks. The pictures were taken on the little mountain about 10 miles from my house. Here's a couple to compare it in the driveway.

Before.



After.



Coming after the weather cools will be a front swaybar, and either Tokico or Koni shocks.

That's hot. I know my next mod. I don't know, it's a tossup between the H&R and the Magnaflow. Can't decide.

Pretty easy decision. From what I've read so far, catbacks on the V6 do nothing more than increase noise unless combined with headers.
