For now I lowered only but I see the rest of the package in the future. But for now, ride and handling is great on just lowering springs.
After I asked, I figured I shouldn't have put it there. I've been looking on the tech board, but since you mentioned I figured I'd ask since I had your attention already. LOL

Nice new ride.. I haven't seen the 5.0 with the older gt500 wheels before. Looks good. Lowering a little bit would bring it all together!

I'm trying to talk the wife into upgrading the suspension to something better than what the dealer put on. It's tough since we just got it, but I think I'm gaining on her.
