Lowered Pics (with Links)

Finally took a couple of pics of the car with the links. Took 1 pic for each of the three positions on the ABC. Also, new front CF lip...

Very nice. What kind of links? How much did you get it lowered?
Did you have to realign the car ? May be I should lower mine too.

The pics kind of suck. The sun was shining in the garage so that pics did not come out real well. I paid $300 for the links. I have not yet had it realinged. Install took about an hour - pretty simple. The top setting (2 lights) is about where the car was (prior to install) when it was all the way down (no lights). 1 Light is about 1/2 inch lower (roughly 1 finger gap betweem tire and fender) and no lights - is LOW. Ride quality is decent with 1 light on the ABC. If you put it all the way down - the ride is pretty rough.

how much shorter and olonger did you go on the end links? I have heard other measurements but just trying to see what you went with.

I would say that I would +/- 5MM on each(I do not recall which one was longer and which was shorter)- but I tried to be consistent for both. The drop is pretty good. The best setting is 1 light. There is no rubbing with it all the way down, but as I said the ride it totally harsh!

Floor came out pretty decent. It has held up going on 5 years... well worth it!
