Default Droped the bonnie

I'm almost done dropping the bonnie. I still have to but in one shock on the drives side and some camber bolts in the rear. Heres what it looks like right now:

The springs are from coil spring specialties. The same place paulnold got his. I saw that his rear was kinda sagging with F41 spec 1.5" front and rear so I got F41 spec 1.5" rear and 2" front. It'* hard to tell but the front is about a finger lower than the rear which is pretty much how I wanted it.
The ride is a little rougher compared to the FE1 suspension but it'* lost it'* boat handling. I still have to install new endlinks and that one shock but so far I like it.
Please realize that the body is no where near finished. I'm hoping to start up on that on next month or so.

Looks good so far. Just a thought though. Now that I finally have seen a full shot of your car, the spoiler looks a little out of place on it. it doesn't seem wide enough. not sure what to recommend for it though. I was considering whether a 95-99 Monte Carlo Brickyard spoiler would fit but am not sure. i'm sure with your body skills you would get it to work. Rocker extensions would also look good to match the front bumper, but they'd have to be custom. Looks good though. keep up the good work.

Thanks guys.
The spoiler is for a mazda millenia.
The spoiler comes like an inch from either side of the end of the trunk lid so I can't really go too much wider on it. I'm not real sure if that'* what I'll definitely end up with but I'm open for other suggestions. I was maybe even thinking about the little spoilers that came on those bubble butt J30s??
After looking at corvettecrazy'* car I want to go with 96-99 SE rocker moldings. I think they would match up pretty good. I still have to shave the entire front bumper too. I was happy that the black strip on the SSE front bumber lined up with the body line on the door.
Another thing I want to change is the grill. It just looks too small IMO next to the headlights.

after seeing and driving behind his car I have to say the spoiler looks pretty sweet from behind and the side.

The first picture is the one that makes me not a fan of it. Just looks out of place with the rest of the car. Don't really have another suggestion. if you like the lip spoiler, a stock LTZ or Z34 spoiler for the 95-99 gen cars might work.
