And they're not high quality cast wheels aka easy to bend on the wrong hole. My outer lip has two small bends on my varrstoens which are even better quality by most people's standards.

And yes tuck your harnesses people znoblebb mentioned but it pretty much cost me my motor, well at least the heads. TGV motor got fried, throttle position sensor, and an injector all lost power and fried my exhaust valves to ****

I used some heavy duty zip ties, recommend also uses c or p style clamps mounted to the car instead which looks more professional.

Will redo mine when I do a wire tuck.

Put some 215/40 or 205/40 on there and you'll definitely be able go lower.

What are you guys doing for an exhaust? I'm planning on dropping my gf wagon alot this spring, but the 3 inch piping (swapped) is already pretty low to the ground. Granted i still need short exhaust hangers but still, I feel like that's not going to be enough.

^that

No modifications, it just scrapes on occasion when I go over speed bumps. I'm never going fast enough over bumps to cause any damage.

Ok then. Hopefully the hangers will do the trick.

My front wheels both had some toe out so I adjusted the tie rods till both wheels looked pretty straight. Problem is prior to the adjustments I had minimal rubbing however now I have lots of rubbing what gives?

edit Turns out somehow changing my toe lowered my car a bit more and now my axle hits the frame. Anyone know what a safe distance from axle to frame is? I know it can vary depending on how stiff your suspension is but just as a rule of thumb. Trying to avoid notching

Why not notch? I literally just let mine rub the frame until it rubbed a nice notch in it
