if anything lower it a little, but do it with new springs.

Honestly, I really like the look of your car as it is. I think that it has the perfect ride height, and the rims, even though they are 20'*, aren't overbearing at all. I would leave the ride height just like it is.


I agree with tinting the tails, clear corners, and painted brake calipers and drums.

We all know what we're aiming for when we use the word "lowering" however I cannot imagine or know why you want to raise the car a few inches? I don't see any explanation of that, could you elaborate?

cb32, in response to your PM, no, I don't even have time to THINK about tinting your tails for you. I have far too much work stacked up here already, and don't even really have time for that.

There are enough topics here (over a dozen at least) for you to get a good understanding of how to get the best results.
