    you can buy just lowering springs....or there are coil spring clamps that you can put on the front to get rid of the wheel gap.

    Yeah, I like hitting rough patches of pavement and flying off cliffs too. :D

    I think you'd only need 1 on each.

    Just get some lowering springs...200 bucks for eibachs, and find a local person that can help you install them so you save the 2.5 hours of labor.

    Thumbs down on spring clamps

    Even if they are discontinued, they are still readily available.

    He replaced his original post, which was posted in 2008, with a rage face picture that did not exist in 2008. So it's a fail.

    Oh ok I didn't know he did that to this thread too. What a boner. Every time I find a new fail thread by him, I'm gonna quote the whole fucking thing in a new post that way we can enjoy it forever. I bet you he's not posting because he is searching like CRAZY to find the epic fail thread he has and delete everything. Quick we need a mod in here to revoke his editing privelages.
