Lol I would have done it differently given the snow situation but I'm in Florida. Besides, this car only travels less than 4 miles everyday back and forth. Now I did see a cruiser with 4x4 monster truck like. Looks really scary!

You're in Jax? I'm in St. Augustine! Hey neighbor! If you ever want to do a photo/video shoot, let me know. I'd love to see your turbo in action, and just to talk shop with a fellow PT owner.

Hey HeavyMetalFL,

Sure why not?! I'm just finishing up with my headlight retrofit then I'll be probably at the Outlet in St. Augustine one of these days. I'll let you know.

Your ride looks already slammed... My springs are custom made based on the GoldLine Slammer.

Man! Lucky you! I've been looking all over for the past 5 months or so. I guess I didn't check craigslist regularly. When did you get yours?

Default Finally!

Lowered, Painted Calipers, Dimpled and Slotted Rotors and Bermuda Black IPCW Tail Lights!

Thanks to John Hill (Owner of North Florida Customs) for getting 90% of the project done. I actually forgot my headlight retrofit so I will probably have it installed next week.

North Florida Customs




Before 2.75F and 3.25R Drop




PT on lifts






Dimpled and Slotted Rotors




Red Caliper Paint






After 2.75F and 3.25R Drop - Showing Rear Only




Alignment was done and surprisingly I didn't have to get a camber kit although it's optional I may have to get it anytime soon. Will post more pics after I wash her tomorrow.

So far I am really impressed with the custom made springs and the ride quality (at least for me) remained the same and it handled really good when turning in corners. 20 inch wheels with Gold Line super Slammer like drop and no rubbing! I know the spring will still settle down in a few months but I still have enough room in the wheel well.

Thank you!
