This shot shows how the tires protrude while still being flush. I love it.

The front coil spring.

The drop in the front. Only 1" but looks lower with the taller tire.

The rear wheel at a close up.

A complete side shot. The rear still sits high but trust me, when compared to stock it is definitely lower.

They are a staggered set. 18x10 in the rear and 18x9 in the front. Tires up front are 255/45/18 and the rear is 275/45/18. The tires are Nitto 555.

Ford Racing Springs.

I have since tuned it from 87 to 93 and installed 4.10 gears and the C&L Racer intake. Wicked now (to me since I know some of you guys are pushing twice my HP haha):clap:

Also installed Hawk Street Pads Front and Rear. Stocks on a dime now. The combo of tire and drop REALLY changed the handling. Feels like a completely different car.

Two things.

The rear settled a bit more. I don't think it ill go down much more without prolonged weight in the back.

Second, I replaced the "GT" emblems with 'Autobot' badges. Couldn't help it.

Looks nice my man but... I would finish her up with the blacked out look (tails and head lights).. Also (me) I'm a big fan of the GT symbol on the side of the 05-09 GT's. Maybe slap it back on and get it painted black. Also get rid of the antennae. Tilll this day, I don't know what Ford was thinking about making that frigging antennae that big. Congrats once again and it's only my suggestions..

I have to agree with Soldier. Get the short antenna or get rid of it.

Not a big fan of the autobot symbol, but whatever floats your boat.
Nice car.

Nice car.
I hate the antenna as well. Trying to get a black 3 inches. I have only been able to find a silver 3 inches. I do not like the 'Shorty' antennas because they're usually still 8 inches which isn't really short.

As far as the tails and headlights, I am getting the Raxiom smoked headlights and corners which retain the amber bulb. The rear I ordered the black deck lid panel and the black trim but I will not be smoking the tails. Too dark for safety IMO so they will stay OEM.

A sfar as the 'Autobot' symbol, I knew it'd be a hit or miss with the 'audience' but it has some meaning to me haha. I love transformers, have always as a kid. It will be the ONLY corny/silly thing I ever do to this car.

Understandable. It's your car, customize it the way you want it.

I didn't know they made a 3 inch antenna...I'll have to look into that.

I like what you have done to your car, very nice. Autobot or not that's what is so awesome about our cars we can do things that make them unique.
Your pics remind me of some neighborhoods in Philly.
