    I haven't installed it.........Yet. I may or may not. I do still need to have the alignment checked.

    My shop did a check before and after install. I didn't need the camber kit and I am better lined up afterwards than I was before the drop. With new tires I feel alot better since i have staggered tires, I want them to last!!

    So, this is related to the how low is your ls. What is the smallest diameter tires on here? Also has anyone had any issues with ABS when they fitted staggered and/or smaller tires?

    Has anyone tried cutting the stock springs? Will it cause the spring to not reinstall correctly? Making a junkyard run this weekend to get a trunk lid for my LS and was thinking about maybe grabbing some springs too. Is this possible?

    Someone put a spoiler on it that didn't belong. Put some ugly holes in it. Found a nice lip spoiler off one at the junkyard and when I took the the one off mine it was not a pretty sight under it lol. It looks pretty in the pic but the top is a different story.

    10-4, couldn't just add another trunk lid spoiler to it or I'm guessing the holes are too plentiful.

    There are 3 holes on each side and the paint is wore off,and the holes are far off from being round. Not to mention they are bent up from it not being tight and rattling around. The spoiler I bought sits flat on the trunk and hangs over a lil and didn't cover any of the holes.

    I just picked up a pillar last week for mine. They were all pretty much ratty except one. It was the right color and everything.

    yeah, I haven't been busy enough with it ... I had found a couple and emailed some yards for this piece but it all came back as gone ... still looking, may have to get new. No a huge deal just previous owner left multiple cig burn marks on it.
