    Front looks good but now the rear looks really high. Any plans to remove the rear isos too?

    As of right now I have no plans on taking the rear isos out. My rear wheels are right at the quarters so I would need to get new spacers as well.

    But right now I think it looks great!!!. I may take out the lower rear ISO.... Not sure yet.

    I really like the setup man...I think it looks good with the fronts out and rears in.

    I, too, think it looks spot on.

    Do you notice any major impact NVH or ride quality when you do this? Been thinking about doing this temporarily.

    ^^ what he asked...contemplating taking out my front iso's or trimming the springs

    I personally think it looks great with a little bit of rake.

    The only thing I noticed was since it was a bit lower, I have to watch my approach in and out of drive ways much more. No road noise and no real sacrifice from road ride. I wrapped a couple of layers of electrical tape on the bottom of the coil.

    The H&R ss springs give the car between 1.75" to 1.9" drop. With my Steeda x2 ball joints without the aluminum spacers dropped it another 1/2 inch. And taking out the isos dropped it another 1/2" to 2/3". So anywhere from 2.5" to almost 3" drop

    Interesting. I don't have to worry much about driveways here since my driveway skirt is flush with the road, and everywhere else I just park on the street. The front looks pretty much perfect.
    Are those fr500s 17s or 18s?

    I have wondered about the Steeda ball joints, that is the next thing on my list before I throw my 4 cylinder Fox springs in. Those balljoints and removing the isolators should give mine a nice look.

    Thanks Allen!
