suggestions:

1. take your pics.

2. in some photo editting program (like the one that came with your camera), reduce the size to have a width or height no greater than 600pixels with jpg quality around 60%

3. post a message on this thread and use the attachments feature; it allows you to attached up to three pics on each image. (when you're posting, scroll down a little and read the "attachment posting control panel" instructions.)

Completely understandable... if my roommate did that, I would not be responsible for what happened next. Temporary Insanity.

Spoke with Eibach

Are those front rims sticking outside the fender?

It's definitely over the top in a cool way IMO. Yeah, a drop would make it real tight.

Just a thought....you increased your wheel heighth by 2 inches, so I hope you compensated by somewhat lessening the overall sidewall heighth of your tires. If not, the overall increase in wheel/tire heighth will cause an decrease in overall gear ratio, which equals slightly slower acceleration. But who knows, maybe now, with those 19's, you'll be able to tag 60 mph in 2nd gear, which might could give you a quicker 0-60 time, but slightly slower quarter time....Let us know what you think. BUT, But, but, but.....they wheels look SWEET!!!...I like 'em.....
