    Before everyone says it:
    I know it'll look better when I lower it. - Omni Power "street" adj. coilovers.
    I know the sidewalls are kinda tall. - I went with 55's instead of 50's b/c I'm on stock susp height. I didn't want a 5" gap...

    Comments welcome!

    205/55/15's..

    I went with the larger sidewall b/c it's not lowered, and would look completely gay with the thinner tires.
    for example... this is with 195/45's

    It just looks gay to me.. so I went with a little bigger tire to even things out.

    You're going to kick yourself when you lower it and your tire takes out a fender when you hit a bump.

    Yes it is.

    Your right. but by the time I lower it, who's to say I won't have already worn these down, or perhaps just decided to get different wheels and stuff??
    I'll burn that bridge when i get to it... :D:D:D

    haha!!!! dude it really looks like a truck in one of those pics. In his defense though it rides like dream. Every bump is so smooth and not bouncy at all. I would trade my kyb/skunk2 springs to have my stock ride back. It freaking bottoms out everytime i hit some kinda dip or something. sucks ass. maybe its the kyb shocks. Andrew my offer still stands. i'll trade you my skunk2 springs for your stock ones:D

    Well actually it looks like the people I bought it from just recently had replaced the shocks... Thats probably why they feel so good and soft...

    Tell you what, find me a good deal on some 'street' model Omni-Power coilovers, and we'll work somethin out...
