      Love the way it looks! Red and black front and rear ovals would look killer!

      My garage buddies did the install. When it comes to cars, my expertise goes as far as filling it up with gas and windshield washer fluid. LOL - But I witnessed the install and it took them about an hour and a half to install the springs. Also, they used 2 camber bolts for the rear. The camber bolts came with the kit from H&R. I appreciate the compliments. @ken60631 was the original inspiration for my ride.

      The only thing about the size of the wheels though, I am limited to the brand of tires I can get. I have to buy 295 45/R20's. There's about a $185 option or $535 option for all season tires. The $185 option are the Parada SpecX Tires.
