Well, not quite slammed , but I did get my SSC Lowering Springs installed today. They still have yet to settle in, but there is already a nice stance from the car. They gave about a 1.5" drop.





Here are some pics from before the car was dropped. I couldn't get any good comparison shots since it is rainy out, so I just took some from a whlie ago.

It is hard to tell from the pics, but there is a significant drop.

I also had my front strut mounts replaced since they were pretty much destroyed, and I also put in the anti-pogo washers. So far the ride is really nice ... even better than before ... probably because of the new strut mounts. The bumps are absorbed much better, but you can definitly feel them. The ride is a tad harder than with the stock springs, but it is still very comfortable.

I am going to wait a couple weeks for them to settle all the way, then I can fully 'test' them out. I also am going to get an alignment once they settle in.

So far, I'm very happy with the new look.

I haven't driven the car hard yet to really find out how it handles. I'm gonna wait a week or so for things to settle in.

No, I haven't measured anything. I really should have done that before I got these on.
