Finally lowered

I picked up a used set of PSS9's from a forum member in March and after a few months of waiting for Bilstein to rebuild them, they are on!! Really happy with the look and ride quality. Stock setup had 60k, so it was time for a refresh. Also got some H&R 12mm spacers all around, which caused some rubbing in the rear, but shaving the fenders (thanks Matt for the help) solved that. Here are a few pics Matt took from ACM and the obligatory gas station pic with Matt cheesin lol enjoy!

Thanks! The ride is great. I did a lot of research and was worried they may be too stiff. I never had coilovers, so I wasn't sure how much stiffer it was going to be. Personally, I think its very close to the stock feel, which I'm happy about. Front is low, especially with the 1m rep, so I'm careful on big dips and driveways. Honestly, I always try and avoid the potholes and dips, they will be inevitable, but I haven't scraped yet.

Thanks man. I didn't measure, but the coils are set to halfway. I believe, from what I read, that PSS9/10 give a minimum drop of 1" when set at highest setting. I'd guess its close to 2" give or take

it's from a company called end.cc in japan, it's really expensive but I was able to buy it used from someone at a steal. there are much cheaper alternatives out there. thanks for the kind words, your going to love it

as for the wheel comments, I will eventually but I am kinda digging the flushed look with the spacers.. it can hold me over for awhile... i think haha
