Re: Just Painted My Cals.....How They Look?

Look great man, I see you did them the right way and painted the entire side of the caliper. Did you use dupli color, or high temp spray paint and bake them?

nice lookin gsx r btw

Re: Just Painted My Cals.....How They Look?

calipers look really good, as does the rest of the car.

now get some lowering springs to get rid of the 4wd look.

Re: Just Painted My Cals.....How They Look?

There are different springs to choose from, type and brand. Your stock springs are linear, they compress in a uniform manner all the time, normal driving and spirited driving.
Most aftermarket springs are progressive. They tend to be soft under normal load but firm up when compressed (like pushing the car through corners).

Eibach pro kit springs are good, a lot of guys on here have them. Some use H&R springs as well. Ford Racing springs are good, but are linear and don't lower the car much.

I would lower the car at least 1.5 inches. Any less than that and you're not going to even notice a drop.
You're also going to want cast and camber plates. These will help keep wear down on shocks and struts (stock) and will prevent uneven wear on the tires. Maximum Motorsports make really good ones. They are about $200.

go with H&R race (if you want handling and a really good drop) and pick up a set of maximum motorsports caster/camber plates

installation is not very hard, look at my how to for it in the article section (in the top toolbar)
