Default 19's back on & Springs/Struts installed

Well after a long, harsh winter on steelies & winter tires I finally put my 19's back on. Last Friday at the same time I had my H&R Sports & Tokico Illumina's installed. So far it has dropped 1.75" front, and 1.5" in the back. Ride is nearly as smooth as stock on the '3' setting, and is definitely firmer than stock at '5'. I think I'm gonna leave it at '5' because it still isnt harsh or kidney pounding at all, but it gets rid of just about ALL significant bodyroll and pitch. I cant believe how much smoother my shifts are now that I dont have that HUGE weight transfer back & forth.

Anyways, here's some pice I'll stop blabbering.













Anyone else polish the inside of their wheels?


BTW I paid $200 to get the stuff installed, $127 for the springs (NIB, hellacious deal) and $365 for the struts (ebay).
