    Eibach Sportlines, and Billstein HD's. Ride is bit rough but it handles 100% better. 17's on front 18's on back. Don't beleive the "you need adjustable LCA if you lower you car" I still have the stock one's on for now. Couldn't remove the bolt, but I'll get to that later.

    Thanks, it only took me about a total of 8 hrs. I just took my time, no air tools. The Sticky about changing the shocks really helped. Total cost was about $1100 for everything.

    Question

    What's the height measured (in inches) from the peak of the fender arch to the ground?
    Also has it settled down any lower since your install?

    Looks GREAT!

    Hey, that looks fantastic! Someone just asked a question about Bilsteins & Eibach springs and how they handle.

    I need to do the same on my 2000 Formula.

    It may have settled a 1/4 inch if anything in the front the back has not moved.
