I think I am going to have them just install the rears, and look at it afterwards and decide whether to do the front or not.

The pics I have seen with the H&R's even with a 1.4 inch drop look pretty low. I would want it lower, but I dont want a fussy wife complaining about her scraping everything.

I have already taught her to not pull up all the way to curbs, dont hit curbs due to the rims, so far so good, but its not lowered yet!

I also am not telling her about getting it lowered! Just telling her I am taking it to get it aligned properly and that it will fill in the gaps of the tires and body. Also getting the windows tinted

If the rear looks good, I will stop there. I know the springs will settle some more so I have to take that into consideration.

Cool.
I just got a set of H&R's for mine, I also have a front set of Tokico Blues, but I still need a rear set then I will install it all at once.

Thumbs up Re: I just might do it.....

HI, Good advice especially when pulling up to those concreat stops at shopping center parking lots; They can cause some real lower front end damage. Always remember to stop short.

When did you get the Tokico's?

I tried to order them at the same time, end of last week.

Everyone states they are on back order, so i guess I will have to wait.

I got the fronts off another forum, the guy had never installed them, he only lowered the rear and used the back shocks...
I tried to order a back set that I found at a great price but the were out of stock, the Blues seem to be very hard to find now
