I see no difference. Razz Laughing

Those exhaust tips work very well IMO. I wish I had the $$$ to do my exhaust.

Love the look but you know that Laughing What all did you replace when you did the lowering besides gr-2's and SSC's? And how did you do it? I'm getting all the parts together to do mine, should be the same height as yours, but your damn wheels make it look 100x better Rolling Eyes Laughing

Fronts are ok but rears rubbed bad when I first lowered her. The rear fenders were quickly rolled with a friends fender roller. No problems since.

I also changed all the mounts, added in pogo washers, and also shorter dogbones. I believe IffyG had a real good thread on how to lower your car. Find it, read it, use it. Wink

I was surprised too but no I don't. My driveway gives me just enough clearance to get by. My friends Evo 8 on the other hand is another story. Laughing

Come to Milan soon so you can see it in person. Then you'll want yours back even more! I miss my twin though.

It's amazing how much a difference a drop can make. I parked next to a stock height Monte Carlo SS the other day and couldn't believe mine use to be that high up (and I've only got Vogtland Springs...).
