Looks great! Fix the little bumpers under the hood so that the hood will line up with the rest of the body!

lol, im not going to slam it, but i do plan about a two inch drop and hopefully if i can find a nice pair of 19's. i think 18's are just a little too small, but 20's dont have enough tread. hope your not f***ing with me lol

I just lowered the front cause I got alot of wieght in the trunk but ya I used pogo washers and got struts, mounts and the springs ........ you'll be fully satisfied if you do. I've read of people not doing it and ending up replacing the stock struts soon after and i read about lowering springs kicking the s**t out of the strut mounts aswell....... i dont think the pogos are a must but i dont know what its like without them ... IMO do it all right away get it over with.

wow that sucks. mine just got put in the day before yesterday.. the power lines were backwards on BOTH blinkers, which made my car think a light was blown but they were blinking, just really fast. that was a 2 minute fix. all i can say is i hope you kept your OEM headlights. if these shoot the s**t, i will just go all out with a HID kit on my original headlights

I have the same set and had an issue with the passenger side headlight fogging up. To fix this problem I simply drilled three 1/4in holes on the bottom, and they don't fog up at all anymore.

As said before, they're aftermarket assemblies and NOT built to the same quality as OEM; they're bound to get moisture in them.
