Thanks guys!!! I'm lovin it, the handling is so much better it's not even funny!

I still can't believe I found this deal, let alone ended up getting it...next up(in awhile) will be some 285/50's and I'm pretty sure when I get those, I'm gonna have to do some cutting and turn it into a 3/5!

I don't know, it sits lower in the front then rear already by about 3/4" I'd say, I haven't officially measured it yet. If it was any lower with the other springs, I would have cut the rears to level it out for sure!

So that little rake I had was bothering me pretty bad...I ended up doing some cutting. Took a half a coil out of the rear. Still sits a 1/2" higher in the rear, but not nearly as noticeable

You kidding I love that little extra rake, makes it look like a dragster, especially if you keep a slightly taller tire in the front.
