Very nice drop, and great looking Z! You are aware that the drop will become lower due to the springs settling down some. Should still very good, but just so that you are aware that it isn't finished yet :)

Where were thos picks taken? Looks a lot like Downtown Plano (Texas) and a bit East on Parker also in Plano.

Nice! You must have taken those pics on a holiday or Sunday - I see no traffic!

the ride is a bit smoother than stock, not quite as rigid. of course the handling is getting better as they settle as well! right now you can go to conceptZperformance and get them for $130.

Looking at your car again seems like it barely lowered it (which is what I'm looking for).

Can you take more pics after the springs have settled? Can you give us your impressions after more time with the springs and after they settled?

Have you or are you planning on realigning all four corners?

Thanks!

i wish i had some better before pics to show you the initial difference, which was alot! it is defiantely dropping, just not slammed!
i will be taking more pics in another week or so after i have done alignment and the springs have settled. and yes, definately a 4 wheel alignment. waiting a full 2 weeks for alignment like i did on my previous cars.
