Default Lowering Springs installation

Found some Eibach Sportlines on Craigslist over the weekend.


Special Thanks to Bearded Banger and Midnight 11 for helping and letting me do the install at their place on a monday night.







Discovered why the brakes were so shitty, spraying brake fluid. Need to replace lines quickly!



SUP GANGSTER!


BEFORE


AFTER


Sits just the way I want it, the single exhaust is rubbing when i hit hard bumps. Already got a fix for that soon enough. Just waiting to find some muffler dumps. Got Longtubes and o/r x pipe waiting to go in next time.

Which is great for a track car taking a lot of driver error out of the equation.
