Makes me want to lower it. I'm on 20" Foundry. Love how these wheels look. I don't want the car sitting on the tires and also don't want the rear to look lower than the front. I'm thinking just springs, because I don't want to get into shocks and such.

Also thinking spacers to move the wheels out a tad, and will be swapping to 275/35 when I replace these tires. I've seen several do 25/23 spacers, but I'm thinking just 23/23. I like the front wheel in just a bit more I think. Does anyone have good pics of 23/23 to see how it lined up to the edge of the body?

Great pics, but very hard to decide. I'll drive it on the street basically 99% of any driving I do. I think it's a pretty firm ride (I like it), but sometimes I feel bad seeing my passenger's head bouncing.

What to do...what to do.... LOL

Yes...YESSS....Yas.....YASSSSSS! 089/082 is an absolute HOMERUN!

I just had a customer call me to let me know that he has had over 4 sets of springs on his PP GT and he has ended up with the 089F / 082R combo and went back to STOCK shocks and struts - and it is exactly what he wanted.

Check out Jess Ashton's video on installing the SP089 Front Spring in preparation for his Whipple 2.9L Supercharger! Jeff has been using our SP080 Springs, but decided to step up to the SP089 Fronts for the added weight of the newfound power!

Thanks for another install video Kelly. It looks like this wouldn't be too tough to do at home. So is clocking bushings typically done at the same time as an alignment? How long after installation do you wait to have that done? Do you need to replace any of the stock bolts during installation ( I believe I saw somewhere that a few are technically one-time-use) Sorry for all the questions
