How do you like the ride and height with the WK Bilsteins and Eibachs? How much drop did you net?

Looks great, similar to where I'm headed but with Vipers and a little less tire - 265/50s.

I like the way she sits and drives. They defiantly removed that floating feeling you get when going around bends. you honestly get the feeling of sticking to the road , There is very little lean or squat when hitting the gas

As for the height, I believe I posted them a bit earlier in the thread. I am on the mobile app so , I can not look them up as easily but I will gladly do it as soon as I get home.

Over all , I am very pleased . With the set up.

Awesome, thank you. Looks like you ended up with a lift... Improving the ride and handling is more a concern than looks for me, so I might be happy with that. I read people's dislike of the SRT Eibach and WK Bilstein combo so don't think I'll go that route to gain any drop.

Leveling the rear down to the front and improving the ride are my priorities though, and sounds like this combo will do that.

Yes , This is exactly what it did . Just remember , You may have to readjust your headlights a little down due to bringing the rear down and front up.

I got the larger side walls because of the pot holes in this part of the State, I hate the idea of cracking or bending a rim due to not enough cushion on my end.

I plan to do the pinch weld mod ( hopefully ) this spring. I do get a little rub at full lock .
