Why did you sell the Cusco's and pick up the GTSpecs? Just for the dark color?

Post up pics of the dark hellas mounted when you finish. I have been wanting to paint the ones i have sitting around black.

Means he left it the way it comes from factory.

I would say mess around with it the settings yourself. Good starting point I'd say would be 8-10 clicks up.

You chip the dash paint installing that head unit? Also, hows the integration? Still have full control of the buttons on the steering wheel? I'm assuming no, seeings how they audio controls looked blacked out on the last picture.

You guys cant be this dense.

And what does dampening clicks have to do with being low?

He was maxed out on the coils as far as height. And dampening isnt really relevant here...

To know what stiffness he rolled around on while being so low?

To know if he was riding atleast somewhat comfortable while being so low?

How does dampening clicks NOT have to do with being so low?

That's all personal preference. Some people will say a stiff track setup is a comfortable ride, others say stock suspension is harsh. Once you have the coils installed, it's really easy to adjust the dampening. Just install them and try different settings. I personally ran mine about 8 clicks back from full hard. If I kept the car longer, I would have gone even stiffer. But that's just me

Makes sense. I already have the coils installed, for maybe 6 months now. Just going to be going lower. But was curious what stiffness setting so I don't rip my fender lining out and what not.

Umm are you sure we are talking about the same collegeville? That lip would be destroyed in a second. I wouldn't be able to get in my driveway, go down my hill, or go very many places at all. Sure I could make it if I drove under 5mph on the bumps but who wants to do that on a 35 mph road? My IS300 didn't have a front lip, was probably as low as this and is scraped on stuff daily. Not to mention, if you go into royersford the roads are convex in order to drain runoff water. Try crossing a convex street without doing an "S" in the middle of the intersection hahaha
