Dont get me wrong, car looks great...but I am not sure if I am missing something. Why are people running spacers on stock wheels? Is this to get rid of the "sunken" look?

On H&R coilovers. not aligned yet. 18x9.5 +38 255/35. ruined my lip getting out from that parking lot. i think the spring rates are too high for hawaii and the car is too low for going to the beach. ordered rce yellows and will install those once they come in. looks nice but i think it drive like crap.

Which wheels are these? Looks amazing!! Sorry if this has already been answered although I looked and couldn't find it. Thanks!

Where did you buy the KW V1s? I can only find the V3s for the new body style.

No difference. I believe the difference is in the strut mounting. As you can see in this link its the same part#. I have these springs on mine and love them. Keep in mind you will benefit much more from replacement struts, our struts suck and that is what causes our mushy suspension feel.

I've had the V1s for a little over 3k miles now. They ride nice. My first set of coils and for DD I don't mind them. My only complaint is the improvement in handling was minimal IMO. I paid $1200 for them new so I'm pretty happy.
