Pics of OEM Springs compared to Dinan Springs with 20" wheels

Just a quick post if anyone was interested in the difference between OEM and Dinan Springs with 20" wheels. When I was shopping spring set-ups I would have liked to have these pics, so what the hell. I am very happy with the out come. The stock OEM stance sits like a pre-runner truck. I never understood it. The wheel wells are finally filled in correctly.

Thanks for posting. Definitely helpful. I plan on Dinan Stage II soon and am looking forward to it. Any issues with rubbing in the rear? Are you using a 285/30-20 rear fitment?

I am running 285/30 20's in the rear and no rubbing issues at all even with 4 people in the car.

Thanks for the pics

Hey, thanks for the pictures! I'm in the process of purchasing some 20" wheels and wasn't sure what type of springs to get. After reading several forums on Dinan suspension, there is no question about me getting any other type of suspension. Thanks again!
