New Pictures After KW Sleeve Kit Install!

I got my KW Sleeve Kit installed this weekend. The weather was looking good this afternoon, so I blew out of work early to take a few shots with the new Klassen M52s.

Golden Rule #1 in car modifying:
If you are going to get wheels, the car must be lowered!

I ended up lowering about 7/8" both in the front and in the rear. There is no rubbing, and it appears there are no other issues. What is your opinion on how low I have it? I'm thinking I may raise the rear a bit. I have never been a fan of the "tucked" rear tire look.

Before you handling purists get bent out of shape, I went to the track a few months ago and hated it. Roads are super flat and straight in FL, so I decided to get some 20's and lower the car. The wheels and tires are about 17 lbs. in total lighter that stock ZCP.

Here are the pics:

I considered the M52's, but dont know much about Klassens. Looks great though. Is that the Vorz GTS front spoiler?

Looks good.

Front is conservative with the drop KW offers. Thats the only con for the sleeve kit.

There is about another 1/8" of additional drop available in the front. The rear is as low as it goes.

Looks Perfect! How is the ride comfort/quality of the sleeve kit? Were you on stock suspension prior to this? How does it compare? thanks!

I was thinking of the KW sleeve kit as well. I have same color exterior with black interior with 19" GTS wheels black OEM.
With KW Sleeve kit would I be able to have the fenders sit right on top of tire look versus the rear tire tucked??Which I'm not a fan of also. Also how is the ride maintaining with EDC?
