Default Lowered my 2013 GT

Cleaned up and lowered:
Before:

After:

The stock ride height was
Front: 28 7/8 inches
Rear: 29 5/8 inches

After installing the pro kit springs:
Front: 27 1/4 inches
Rear: 28 inches

The ride quality vs stock is stiffer, Konis might help with that. It is a lot tighter in the corners and looks a lot better IMO. I still need to get an adj pan hard bar because the rear shifted a little as suspected. I did put the GT500 mounts in "reverse" and the definitely helped when I checked the alignment.

Looks good! It should settle a little bit more after a month or two of driving around.
