Exclamation Ok, I feel better now.....

Okay so I picked up the GT today after having the Goldline SuperSlammers and Tokicos installed.

Honestly, I really didnt notice that much of a difference driving it. I only drove 3 miles back home, some smooth, some a bit rutted.

I took some measurements before and after

From the concrete to the middle of the spoiler went from 6 inches to 5.25

From the concrete to fender went from 26 inches to 25.25, both front and rear.

Remember I went from Eibachs to the superslammers


I am going to drive it to work tomorrow, about 20 miles, so I will post any other observations and some pics later.

I will tell you, it looks amazing, especially with the mopar side skirts. The whole stance is there.

If the springs are new, they'll settle and you'll drop even further.

Okay, I have driven it more.

It is rough on less than perfect roads. On a smooth highway it gives a smooth ride. If I know the roads are rough I have to slow down.

Thankfully This is not an everyday driver. It looks better than it rides lol

Hindsight being 20/20 would you still spend the $$$$$$$$$$ it cost to install the shocks, structs, slammers from the Eibach kit you already had installed on your car, knowing what you know now?
