    Hey Az,

    Dou you think the front sits a little higher than the rear? I was looking at your pics on cardomain. Have any bigger side shots?

    Thanks,

    Erik

    Actually it does sit a little higher. But at the time the pics were taken I had a bunch of stuff in the back of the car, including heads, oil, and tools. I will try to get some more pics sometime in the next few days...

    Also I think visually the 315's make the back look different.

    I just went out and took some pictures in the car port, some are a little dark and most of the ones I took from the side are too dark to see anything... I need to go buy some batteries for my camera...

    I think the difference in the gap from front to rear you are seeing Erik is the difference between the 275's in the front and the 315's in the rear. Optical illusion...

    to solve that problem, put 315s in the front on 17x11... pix in signature... gap is better

    almost stock triple-black 2000 SS convertible with 17x11s on all 4 w/ 315s at the track or on the street with 18x10.5s on all 4 w/ 315s: (1), (2)

    The shocks are still stock so the ride is bit a rough. I like the stance though.
    It is closer to 1.5" than 1".

    Damn, I'm wanting a 1" drop and I've been looking at the BMRs for price, spring rates and the drop.

    Hey Azrael, your car seems to have the same stance my car has with Eibach springs. I was wondering if you could tell me the offset and backspacing on your rear rims and if you experience any rubbing either on the inside or outside of the tire. I am assuming they are 17x 11's.

    Thanks

    I bought them from a member on another board but was told they are 50mm offset. I have a little rubbing on the driverside on the inside of the well (I think the adjustment jam nuts get loose on our APHR)...
