    :mad: damn my car sits too low, especially with the longtubes. tonight the driver side flange where the midpipe connects to the mufflers got pulled apart. havnt really looked at it too much, i just hope i can tap the part back onto the midpipe and just tighten everything back down......

    How many inches is your exhaust off the ground?

    I agree, your car seems to be sitting lower than the normal Eibach Pro Kit, do you have the spring isolators on there? I'd hate to see you lift it up, your car looks amazing, but I know what you mean about hitting stuff under there.

    no spring isolators..... when i was putting the long tubes in i fig i would try it to see what it looked like, and i love the stance. i dont have any noise complaints, but with the long tubes it is just too low. just gonna end up putting some new isolators back in and see if it helps, i dont drive the car too often so it really isnt a big deal. but i am just afraid i will really mess up something. last month leaving a car show, someone had tossed some sort of electronic device out on the road downtown. lets just say it was about the size of a vcr. i knocked the shit out of it with the k member and drug it for a few...

    The polyurethane isolators look nice and arent too expensive. Did you take out both the top and bottom isolators? That would definitely expalin the low look. I was thinking bout taking just one out off my front springs, but I already have trouble getting the jack under the front. They just look so sexy when they're low though...
