before the drop. Stock shocks and springs. Why the hell is the front higher than the back? Nothing is missing from the engine bay.


After the drop



Typical weekend at BAS. Doing a HG or replacing blown Tokicos or both.


Thanks to zero and BoostAddctn for the help

biggest difference is in the front.

The install was pretty straight forward. Fuck the windshield washer bottle, hardest part of the install at lwast on 87 on 89+ BoostAddctn says it doesn't get in the way as much.

The rears were a tight fit as the bushing was a little wide to fit back on the arm. Nothing a lot of super lube can't fix. Zero loves the smell of that shit. We sprayed so much of it I can't even remeber the name of that shit any more, brain damage.

oh and I just rained the other day so the car is cleaner than it should be.

if your car is sitting on an incline then that's why your front appears higher than the rear. all the weight is going downhill towards your rear end.

acutally it always used to sit like that even on level ground.

I don't know how it handles the turns yet, but overal handling has improve even the dipping I used to get from slight breaking is gone. Slightly bumper overall but that is expected. No ricer bumpiness though.

Get some update pics in a little bit, it took my car a while before the springs settled in, that's the exact combo i have on my car (some color and dirt too ;) )
