Dang that looks good
I'm interested to see how much it will help my car when I FINALLY lower it.
Now here's the thing, and I'm just speculating here so don't quote me. This setup will probably work if you stay with the P springs, maybe even with the steeda springs as its only 1" of drop in the front.
Travel outside of those setups, like the K springs with 1.5" of drop and your camber will require adjustment I would think, like jeff.
Something to keep in mind.
Mayo, glad you did this and posted specs sheets.
When I originally did this, didn't have a printout to post.
My springs are H&R Sports w/1" drop also.
I've got over 30k miles like this now with no problems.
The only reason the install instructions tell them to point
arrow out is with stock spings thats factory setup.
With arrow in and lowered there is actually less stress on
upper mount because its twisting it a smaller angle.
MY HERO ARRIVES!!!lol
Dude thanks so much for the info that you posted, saved me some coin. Without your idea I would have probably purchased camber plates to finish the job. That being said I might use some of the extra $$ for some fog lights like your's, i'm diggin that setup you got goin bro...looks clean!
Thanks again, first round is on me
I'll be doing my SR springs (1.5" drop) from AM with GT500 mounts in the morning. At my last tire rotation at the stealership, I was already -1* or so on the front from the factory with the 18" factory bullets. At 20K miles, I was noticing some slight inner tire wear. Nothing serious, but a hint was there for sure. I'm planning on turning the mounts "in" when I do the install to hopefully stay somewhat within spec. I think up to -1.5* is still considered within spec, but don't quote me on that. If nothing else, I'll just have to stay on top of tire rotations.
Got the springs in and the GT500 mounts. Turned the notch "in" on the mounts. Ill drive it for a while and let things settle before I check alignment. I'm hoping they settle some because it looks to have only dropped an inch at this point.
