    still have the ls so why not

    sprint springs with monroe shocks

    got the winter wheels on right now that are 235/45/17

    All four corners are about 25 1/2"

    my other wheels are 245/40/18 so a little bit higher ride height with those on

    I love those wheels. I have the same ones just 17's. Definetily should have gotten the 18's instead.

    It doesn't bother any of you lsers that the rear is lower then the front's?

    Once a load is put in do any of you guy's have issues?

    Yes it bugs me. Once you get more then 1 person in the back it squats bad. Only issue I've had its hitting bottom a couple of times.

    When I called Eibach about cutting my front springs (V6 weighs less, so my drop is less than you V8s) they said that the Eibach kit for our car is NOT progressive rate.

    He pulled up the original engineering files for the springs, and they are in fact linear rate springs.

    More specifically, according to Eibach (at least for the V6's specific weight difference) cutting 1/2 coil up front will not effect the springs rate.

    The height is actually closer to level than all these numbers indicate. There is just more fender cutout up front since those wheels have to turn.

    With the proper offset, 285's will fit on a 9.5" wide rim.

    Jwall didn't cut them. The previous owner did.

    BTW If you really want to reach Jwall, try PMing him. Since he sold the LSX. He no longer comes here on a regular basis. He may not see this post for weeks.

    I'm finally putting my springs on this weekend, my only question is... Do I really need the:qcamber alignment kit. I've read countless post on this subject, I just don't want to spend the money if I don't have to. Thanks in advance. Will post my stance as soon as I put the springs on.
