    A Common drop:
    Tokico illuminas
    Eibach Pro-Kits
    17 Evo 9's
    225-45-17

    I clear speed bumps, I dont scrape everywhere. I love my drop, ride quality is acceptable.

    You 100% certain you've got Prokit springs, it looks awfully low is all. My car with a Prokit has wheel gap for days... What color are your Eibach springs?

    Im certain I have pro-kits, they are black springs. Take into consideration the black wheels, if you look closely I have some reasonable wheel gap. When I first purchased the car it was sitting on Eibach sportlines, now that was a ridiculously low drop. Nice 2g by the way, gst or gsx? 4aza9a6u.jpg

    Maybe it's just the angle of the photo and not a straight on side shot, makes the wheel gap there a bit deceiving.

    Yes, if you want to know the truth. It's got a GS-T VIN# but it's AWD.

    Not possible, and there was no "RS" specific VIN # designation just 2g FWD N/T.

    Mine has a GS-T VIN because it was a GS-T from the factory, I converted it to a GSX back in '08.

    What's the VIN number off the dash? I guess it's possible that you've got a N/T RS dash in your car and you just gave them the VIN# off that plate. The true VIN# is on the driverside door jam sticker and the 5th digit should be a "K" and the 8th should be a "F".

    Back on topic tho, if you want more VIN# questions answered PM me.

    How is this setup working for you so far? Are the Sportlines too harsh?


    and what rims are those?

    Question for you guys, what size wheel gap do you normally run? I have xxr 527 18x8.75. On 235's. I installed my megan racing coilovers that I got from a friend and I could barley get my pinky in all four corners. Looked really sweet but just know for a DD that is going to be to low.
