I dropped my car off shortly after my last post ,I forgot to take pics of the springs before hand,anyways I didnt go for the colour option ,I chose to go with black(60 bucks cheaper),A buddy of mine works at the local pontiac dealership and is getting me a nice discount on the installation of the struts and springs.I'll take picks when i get her back .

Kyb Gr2'* and 1-1/2 drop springs installed,I kept my ccr'* and stock springs for emergency'*.The car now handles like a car and not a cruise ship. Looks also improved just but getting rid of a little of the wheel gap.I have tested car on the highway doing a 100 plus,high speed cornering and pilon style swerving,I can honestly say that I enjoy driving my car more than ever now,The gr2'* are pretty impressive and combined with the new springs and poly sway bar bushings the ride is pretty tight. I feel the road now !Unfortunately the only downside is you feels the bumps more too. But I Prefer it this way,handling has imrpoved 10 fold. ,I'll get some pics up when this torrential rains stop :(

The car sits a little lower in the rear,due the the extra weight of the stereo system,I recommend anybody that going to lower their car to get the rear springs a tad higher depending on trunk contents,My freaken sub with box is like a 120 pounds and then the amps are pretty heavy too ,the finish on the springs to me looks kinda cheap ,but then the powder coat was 100 extra canadian dollars.

Can you trick your ELC to keep the rear jacked up a hair? Or did the KYB'* bypass the Load Level?
