By the way bro how much did it drop from the original one i know the sportline 1.0 front and 1.3 rear.but on the actual is still the same height or it will differ on the weight of the vehicle? because i was planning to get the sportline but i dont want to scrape it on the driveway if you install it i dont know if it will dropped by 2" or something..

Yes sir he did! He goes over it earlier in the thread! Jonnys doing a superb job! Btw Jonny, whats the group buy going to be for? Is it just for the lip? Or can ot be the lip, sides, and rear splitter as a package? And pricing? Sorry cant see the links if that info is in there, for some reason my phone wont take me there, and i do not own a com so any insight is appreciated! Keep up the good work!

PM for these types of questions in the future :thumbsup:....
The drop was pretty close to what Eibach advertises.
The wheel spacers
Welcome to the forum, please PM for this type of question in the future.
Your answer can by found at my Garage where that question has been asked more than once.

I had my friend Ben in Long Beach help me start the modification to the planted seat bracket.

The front legs needed to be heated and bent to match the angle of the floor. We used a vice for that.

Next, we cut the welds on one of the front legs with a grinder because the spacing needed to be widened between the legs to match the threaded holes in the floor.

We mocked it up as you see below.

Next step is to cut the back legs and reposition them to match the threaded holes in the floor.

So anyone in the SoCal area know a shop willing to weld the three legs? :)

People need to use the search engine. "Specs please" gets really old and annoying especially if you don't do the research before hand. There is alot of information just looking in forum.

Labor was $350. I also bought a 3 year unlimited alignment package which added another $100.

I had to keep an eye on the installer, he forgot to cut the bump stops and I had to remind him about it.
What did you cut the bump stops too? and do we have to do it once lowered?

It instructs how much to cut in the provided instructions. I think it was around 15-20mm to trim from the bottom.
You do have to do it after lowering because the new height will cause trouble with the shock travel.
