    Everyone was yelling at my telling me to lower my car. The funny thing was it was already lowered with the Eibach pro kit. I pulled it apart and found that they didn't install the spring correctly and it made the springs sit about as high as stock in the front and lower in the back. The first pic is what it looked like before. I reinstalled the front springs "correctly" and I took out the isolators.

    Should I take out the rear isolators to even it out??




    EDIT: should I get Black mustanggt inserts or stainless???



    Another edit, Pics and question and pics?

    I think it looks good now man... not so low that you scrape, but not high enough to go rock climbing :)

    I like the stance that you have right now. Your car looks great. :thumb: Do you like your chin spoiler that you have on your car? I was thinking about installing one on my car.

    I don't have lower isolator's on the rear, and upper's on the front. My car squeeks badly and it is very embarassing in parking lot's. People look around for an antique pickup and only see me.

    I like the stance! Has a bit of a retro rake to it. But these days we don't raise the ass as high as in the old days. I'll bet that slight rake will help your weight transfer. My car is too low. It's settled even lower than my pic below (click link). My weight transfer sucks bad for the horse power I have and the tires I have. I'm going to raise her about an inch (she's 2 inches lowered now. My "K Member has been taking a beating.) Then put some 10.5s on the rear with some drag radials.

    I like the black bezels on your color of car. I was going to do it but have now changed my mind. Hopefully next year I'll have my new wheels/tires and body kit. Maybe two years for paint with ghost flames.
