Got the shackles on and the front windows tinted
 
And boy does it show off how little those tires are. Saving up to get the next bigger size put on. These low profile tires suck! At least the 305/45 will give me a bit over 1 inch more tire and hopefully help with the ride quality.

Could only go 20% on the tint as that was the legal limit here in NC.

Nice ,how much did the shackles drop it and hows the ride?

chithead 05-05-2010 01:23 PM

They dropped the back end 2 1/2" on both sides. Greased the heck out of them and made sure to torque everything back to factory specs in an effort to avoid that terrible squeaking I kept reading about.

The ride is pretty darn close to factory now. It actually rides a bit smoother now with the drop shackles. Took a lot of the firmness out of those tires But there are still times they remind you about not being much cushion.

Anyone interested in a set of gently used 305/40R22 Kumhos? :D:D:D

Looks great Daniel, and I think you need to go lower before getting new tires :LOL: But if you're just doing the rear level then yeah, bigger tires would be better. And how much for the Kuhmos? Might take them from ya if I'm able to head to Gatty.
