I have 18x9 and 18x10 GT4 clones with a hypercoated finish:



On the front I will be putting 275/40 NT05s and the rears will get 305/45 NT05Rs. It's all currently sitting in my living room waiting for a some free time and a borrowed truck to get them mounted.

Re: Lowering Springs Installed

looks good, not super slammed but just low enough so any lower would be to many issues to deal with

Thanks. That's exactly what I was going for. It is low enough the the "feet" on the lift at my dad's work (we use it from time to time) don't slide under the rocker panels anymore. I wonder if they would let me stash some 2x4s there to drive up on...

Thanks! I need to go back and touch them up a bit, a few nicks happened taking the wheels on/off again. In hindsight, I should have done that AFTER the suspension work =\

1" front, 1.5" rear, the rear sits 0.5" higher on the stock springs so this levels it out.
