RDsports are on.

i got my springs install on Tuesday 11/25/08 and didn't have any time to take pictures when it was done, yesterday it was ugly and raining outside so i couldn't take any either.

So its starting to clear up today and i was able to snap a couple shots.

Everything(more to come) was Order/installed by SonicMS, Big thanks to Darwin and his Crew.

i took some picture before the install to compare them, ill have better pictures up when my rims and other goodies come in.

Before Pictures




After pictures

Nice! looks like the front and rear were lowered evenly, i was thinking of eibach's but from what i've seen the front looks higher than the rear. How do they ride compared to stock? how much did you pay for them? (you can PM me the price if its a secret, )

Anyone heard of the RD Sport springs causing EDC errors? Does the front suspension require more travel and is that why stock there's a bigger gap in the front? Is this why H&R has a bigger gap in the front? If so, is RD Sports design more for looks vs function.. Thanks to whoever can answer these questions.

The EDC works fine with RD springs with no error code, i went with RD because of the front drop make the stance look alot better then H&R. i order RD springs because i wanted the looks + all the function from my EDC.
