H&R Springs/Pics Perfect!

Very happy with the results. The ride is really no different in comfort mode, but turn EDC to sport setting and the car rides more like a cart. Awesome mod. Here's some photos:

Awesome, Rod. Perfect drop. Transforms the car from an off-roader to a low-riding monster, doesn't it?

Thanks guys!

Boner and Mike both inspired me. It certainly makes the car look so mean.

I was so happy I took two hours today and gave the ***** a real cleaning then took these shots. Polished the wheels and all. Now she's in the garage covered until it dry's up again.

Obviously just an onlooker's opinion, but I don't think the rake of the H&R springs looks right on this car. Maybe it looks different in person. Any springs available that will take some of the height out but keep it more level?
