Alright Guys. So I got the 18's now... the phosphyre Halos.. the m3 mirrors... the ECIS... I was thinkin I'd go with an SSK next... and I still want pulleys, software, and some exterior mods...

Thing is... I took one look at my wheel gap after I put on the new rims and decided I need a drop...
So do the poll and tell me what you all think...

Just what nick's 4 by 4 looks like. :lmao: Drop should be your first priority. Personally I would go coils and forget the other stuff.

nice shoes! cupkit that shiz!!!! and post more pics :D

a good alternative is the PSS setup, height adjustability and great ride quality for about 800, only 200 more than cupkit.

good luck

Would you guys believe those "nice ass rims" only ran me 1000 shipped from miami with Kumho Ecsta MX's and all lugs included... free mounting and ballancing?

Hell of a deal, I'm still tryin to figure out what the catch was... they may be soft...

Anyways I'm thinking PSS... but I guess it'd be bad to get them used, right?

Thanks

You should be able to get PSS (not PSS9s) for less than 800 bucks. Thats what I'm getting. Problem is they dont come in until jan 04. Still waiting:sad:

if you don't have the snow facter

then i say get shocks and springs they go hand in hand with each other than down the road if you like go for coilovers.

definitely go for the coilovers,
I have pss9 and i am very happy with it.
many on the board sez that the pss9 wouldnt give u the slammed look, i personally dont want it slammed but that should be another factor in ur decision.
if u go the springs route i am pretty sure your sport shocks WILL
not be able to handle it!
