wow i like those rims alot..i was considering those but got black rims with a chrome lip instead. The stock suspension doesnt bother me at all. But to each his own.

Nice ride man, may I suggest the Vogtland sport suspension...I got mine like 5 months ago and compared to the FK Hightec cupkit that I had before, its so much better...smoother ride even though its a little bit stiffer, but turning is also much better.

Looks good. The tint and wheels tie together well.

You know the gap actually looks worse in the pics. It doesnt seem AS bad in person. Coming froma Toyota (and a 16 year old one at that) the stock suspension doesnt really bother me, but I can see where it could be tightened up a bit. A little less body lean would be good. Sometimes when the road surface is "hilly" (think 635 between I35 and the airport) it floats up and down a bit, but I've driven worse.

Ha! I just realized you posted this, several days after the fact. Hopefully I have some shocks coming soon, and when I get them, I'll be knocking on Paul's door.....
