well I took my torsion bolts out completely today and my god it looked amazing even with the stock rims. i believe i got a 3" or more drop. my airdam sits only a few inches off the ground. Tomorrow a shop is putting my edelbrock shocks in and installing the 2" blocks in the rear and putting my 20 inch rims on. Right after i pick it up i have an appointment at the tire shop to get it aligned. I will definately get pictures up either tomorrow or friday.

What are the tire dimensions? What is the offset and backspacing of the wheel? How rough is the ride? (not because its lowered, im talking because you're on 20's)

The tire dimensions are 275/45-20. Not sure about the offset and backspacing but i'll check on that. The ride isnt bad at all its just different. But the guy who did the alignment said that i have a swaybar bushing missing so when i turn sometimes there is a little vibration on the steering wheel but im getting it fixed in the next few days. the 20s feel great actually

yes everyone in my town stares at it now. now i have to do some little stuff like:





1) Sand and paint my stepbars and a few spots on front bumper



2) Get my exhaust tips welded on



3) 20% tint on front windows



4) Fix my fog light switch--it used to light up orange when ON and green when OFF and it stopped working after about a week. anyone know what the problem is? the wires?
