Looks good! So I've been following tbones build. How does the swift springs and kw ride? I see that you need GC Plates as well.

It rides great. We went with a pretty stiff front spring (560lb) so I wanted to see if it would be too firm for the street, but it's very comfortable. The shocks do a great job of soaking up the bumps. It's actually more comfortable than my benz, which comes with factory air suspension.

Yes, you need GC if you go with the swift springs due to swift's smaller diameter. But since the plan was to run aggressive offsets, the GC plates offered flexibility to dial in if needed.

Here's a before/after pic of the trunk. You can guess which pic i took And yes, I shaved my trunk. I've shaved the trunks on all my cars. I like it smooove

Would you like looking at your car with some newly finished lips?

Well, these are one-off wheels so there's no MSRP. Darwin@Sonic can get you pricing if you're interested.
