This is the only picture I've seen of them and of course it isn't a good one.

I placed an order tonight and also ordered some lowering springs to go with them. Just gotta find some tires and I'll be set.

They're definitely different. They should go good with the green, I don't think they would have looked as good on my old mustang.

Just when I thought that I couldn't top the deal I got on my old wheel and tire setup... just picked up some 275/40R18 and 285/40R18 Nitto 555s for $400. That brings my grand total up to $760 for a full wheel and tire setup.

Gauges are done for the most part. My wideband still needs the wires routed, but it's a retune least driveable. My buddies terminator got to be the guinea pig for wire routing so mine should go pretty smooth.

Damn that's a good deal and they are def out there. I once got a set of Wrangler ATS tires for my truck with 9/32 left on all 4 corners for $100 on CL...

And that wiring is just making me dread popping the pillar and radio out of mine... ugh...

Definitely keep on keeping on tho. Its looking like she is almost done.

That's the autometer triple pillar correct?

Yeah somehow they've been up for over a month so I was quite happy to get them for the price I did.

I plan on redoing the wiring at some point and am expecting more surprises when I do.

Yes Autometer triple pod for now. I'll probably end up changing it at some point, I don't like knowing that there's holes in the factory ones underneath.

Supersports? I hope to be seeing a box just like that with Supersports in it this spring for my 03. Gonna lower then wheels later on.

I was also looking at the Tein S Tech springs the other day, they advertise a little lower drop of 2" back and up to 2.5" front with a stock feel ride. I know it wont be a "stock feel" ride with either but 2" seems like a lot compared to other brands. The 03 has new shocks/ struts on it, not the best but their the best Monroe shocks offered. I think I can get away with them in the short term, maybe until next season and then get the Koni STR.T shocks/struts. I was also considering the Raceland coilovers, I know their not the best and arent a true rear coilover set up, but Im not looking for anything track worthy, just looks, and the occasional spirited drive. Any suggestions or experience with any of these?

Also you need to post pics asap when you have everything installed. I want a HG Bullit one day......:dreaming:

Yes sir, went with the supersports and now I'm just waiting on a deal for some C/CS plates to pop up.

I believe CompOrange has run both the Teins and the Racelands. Granted his car was a silver when he had the Teins on ut, but I remember that the front didn't settle like he was expecting it to. For looks only I believe the Racelands are a decent option, I haven't heard anything about their performance capabilities though.

I'm kicking around installing the springs here in the next few days and then mounting the wheels and tires on saturday, so hopefully new pictures will come soon.

I do remeber when he got the Racelands, and he had the fenders rollled or did them himself now that you mention it. Now I also remeber The Chech went with Racelands too. He had good results if I remember correcrly. If I did the Teins and they dropped it a solid 2" all the way around I would be happy. More than likely Ill stick with the Supersports since I know their great and I have them on my 96 currently. I did go with the MM CC plates on my 96 with the Supersports. When I had it aligned the tech told me that they really werent necessary for me to get it back into spec as he has got them back without them. But, it wasnt a crazy drop either roughly 1.75" or a little less at that point since they were fresh. With a 2" drop I would probably need them though. I have no issues with tire wear whatsoever on my 96 since having it done 2 yrs ago, and it feels great too.

Nice. I'll have to see what sort of adjustment I can get out of the stock plates. I'm sure the Racelands will work just fine, there just hasn't been enough people on here with them

For whatever reason, mine was pretty far off after getting aligned. I think mine is about a 1.7" drop. I ended up getting MM CC plates and shocks and struts at the same time. They got mine barely within spec, but they also didn't change the camber bolt position when they aligned it, which could have given them more adjustment. I question whether they were completely familiar with MM's CC plate adjustments. I got worried about ruining expensive tires. That's basically why I got them.

I've been kicking myself a little because I sold my old MM C/C plates after I sold my old GT. One of the perks of leaving my old shop on good terms is that I can always swing by and get an alignment for the price of buying some food afterwards. So I can afford to play around with the stock plates first.

They do look similar to the SVE drift wheels. Which I really like too. They should look good

Haha you're welcome. Not much to really tease, it's sitting on stands with 3 of the 4 springs installed.

For now I'm sticking with the factory Tokico struts. Once those go out I will probably go with some Bilsteins.

Bilsteins are the best, pricey but awesome. Just wondering because I will be doing something similar, I will be installing H&R Supersports or something similar and my car had new shocks/struts already installed when I got it. I would like to get away with the ones that are already on it for a couple seasons until I replace them with something better like orange Koni's or Tokico HP's. From the part numbers on the receipt when he had them installed their the best Monroe has to offer. I figure if anything they have to be as good as the OEM units, and last at least 10-15k miles with lowering springs. Just trying to budget everything so I can do the most I can this coming season.

And get that thing done!

Yes they are, the only way I'll get anything better is if I go coilovers and get some MM race spec struts.

They should last you a while, my old GT shocks made it a year at me previous slammed ride height and those had 70k on them.

The last spring is in. I kind of made the mistake of trying to put the sway bar in by myself... so I got creative. I loosened both sway bar end links up and then zip tied these to the springs so that they would stay in the desired position while I placed the sway bar back on. Wheels will be going on here in a couple hours so I'll try to have so.e updated pictures then.

Alright the wait is over. Headed out at 8:30 this morning to get the tires mounted. Everything fit like a glove. Had to make a trip to auto zone to pick up a set of lug nuts. The factory ones fit but I couldn't get a socket in the lug holes. The wheels for great and the taller sidewall fill the fenders quite nicely. Unfortunately the drivers front fender rubs on braking and turning due to it being messed up. That will be getting "modified" for now until I send it to a body shop.
