New Shoes!!!

So when I bought my car, it came with 20" Chrome Irocs It also was in desperate need of being lowered.

I finally got my new 17" Billet Specialties Street Lites on and I can now take the car in public! While waiting for the new wheels, I kept myself plenty busy color-sanding and buffing.

Fronts: 17x7 with 4 inch BS and 225/45-17 tires.
Rears: 17x9.5 with 5.5 inch BS and 275/45-17 tires.

I removed 1 full coil in each of the front springs, but that dropped it down too low on the passenger side (was rubbing on the fender bolt). I then bought a 1" rubber spacer that installs between the spring and the LCA which raised the car up about .5" which gave it the right stance.

Re: New Shoes!!!

I like it much better. The street lites are pretty sick and the car looks awesome.

Definite improvement. I thought they only pulled that garbage in Modesto.. Didn't think it made it to the boonies.
