SR Lowering Springs.

yo guys, finally got my lowering springs install, eliminated that awful wheel gap of mine and the over look for the price I paid on AM was awesome, gives the car that mean look, what you guys think?

It'll take 3+ hours if you don't have any help and if it's you first time. It's simple though. The s197s are a little trickier than the sn-95s however, you should use a spring compressor I highly recommend you use one (I didn't and almost effed up no body was in the way) you can rent one at autozone.

If anyone is gonna lower their car I think they should do it themselves. It's good to learn and it's fun. To me anyhow. Unless you don't feel comfortable, then have a shop install.

OP, nice drop. Looks good.

I looked up the write up some of the customers did on american muscle and it doesn't look too tough to be truthful. I've had my springs sitting in the box they came in since early february... I need to get to it!

No it looks good but you can tell its a little too high.. your car didn't have the holes from the original emblems?? But you can remove them with dental floss and then use double sided tape to stick them again

Nice stance, and I agree, the emblems don't look bad, just a little out of place that high up lol.
