No this isn't photoshoped. I replaced my 8" Ground-Control springs with 10" ones and cranked the collars almost all the way up. I went from 1.25" below stock height to about 2.5"-3" above. I can still lower it to about 1" below stock for autox and for rallyx/tsd I think it'll be about 1" over. This little test was just for fun, it's like the modern AMC Eagle

Haha, I was going to ask you to see pictures, didn't know you had posted some!

You should leave it cranked up like that. Just straddle the cones and you won't knock 'em over

Lemme answer some questions:
The little silver thing in the orange grate on the left side of the front pic is a 10hp STi viscous intake flux-capacitor... or it's a leaf.

The tires are AVS-S1's down to the wear bars.

The header? I guess you noticed the skidplate in the front view.

Kelley, I'd leave it jacked up for autox if I didn't have positive camber everywhere now

I'm suprised you haven't torn out the damn orange vents and painted them. Took me all of a day (being petient with the paint to dry) to paint mine bright blue and it looks great.

Actually it handles surprisingly good considering the alignment is all outta wack. I'll be "lowering" it to 1" above stock height for the rallyx this weekend. If it doesn't handle well at that height I'll put it down to stock height.

Painting orange plastic trim isn't very high on my priorities list, actually it isn't even on there. If I'm going to spend that much time on my car it better do something to improve performance/handling.

Have a Nice Day?

Painted vents aren't one of your priorities?

Geez, Tony.... You have to add them to your list... I'm showing up to the winter series with my now A-Mod classed RS.

22B wing, Chrom fender trim, chromed hood scoop, chromed mustang wheels, metallic flaked window tint, airbrushed front vanity plate, kickin boom system. Oh yeah, I also had the rear view mirrors chromed and had the seats re-upholstered in velour. I also figure that the "calvin peeing on Mitsu" sticker should give me 5-10 hp. We'll see.

The sad thing is that everything you mentioned would be legal for STS
