Thanks guys! I appreciate your feedback!
good progress.
sell the 25mm spacers sell the itr wheels and get sum news with correct offset that your looking for. THe ride takes a shit when those spacers are on.
Looks good man how you like the coilovers? I'm thinking about getting some.

How you like the shifter extender? I can't imagine what its like, not awkward?

I really like them! they are stiff but i like a stiff ride.. LOL. Ive had no problems with them yet! and they aren't maxed out yet, so I could go lower.

I really like it. It did take some time to get used to. Since its so high the weighted shift knob doesn't slide into place as well as before. But i still like it
damn.. sexy
Looking good !
