    Suspension Color

    I not sure if this should be in the suspension section, but if you go with red suspension parts, can you see them from just looking at the car? I have a NBM TA and as a gift I recieved a red phb. Now I can get the rest of the parts in black but since I already received one in red, I ideally would like to keep them all the same color. I plan on getting lca, sfc, and eventually torque arms, just wondering if these would be visible without actually looking underneath the car. Thanks!

    It really is up to you and what you like.

    I have the same car color and I went with black for 2 reasons:

    First red is easily seen and clashes with our color scheme, Black just hides it and makes ppl to get down and give it a serious look if they are wanting to know if you have suspension up grades.

    Second was because when I do get a paint job it will go with the color change I plan on doing.


    And to answer your other question, yes a red PHB is one of the first things to get noticed.

    If you are standing up, you cannot see anything under the car. You may be able to see a PHB if you walk back far enough away from the car.

    My sub-frame connectors are not noticeable from the side of the car unless you bend down and look.

    If color is a concern and you happen to see it, you can always just spray paint it black

    I like to have the color black, but I like to have the suspension stand out too.

    yeah i could do that! I'll just get the rest black and if I can see the phb more to my liking i'll do that. I would like show off the parts and keep them the same color but more so i don't want it to be visible without looking underneath. So black it is! Thanks guys!
