    This thread is making me miss my old fox bodies! I forgot how sexy and clean they look with a nice wheel and suspension combo!

    time for a shifter next, while the stock shifters in sn95's arent as bad as fox's they still resemble a sloppy wet noodle.

    As long as you like them that's all that matters. I've hardly seen those kind on GTs so I guess I'm not used to them. Btw by cheap do you mean ebay springs? I was thinkin about trying some from there and iif I don't like em I reasoned I guess I can always take them out and sell em cheap and not loose a lot of $

    Its lowered.. It dropped the front a lot more than I expected. I love how it looks but there is not much travel left in the struts..... Ill have to get different struts later...
