Looks good!

When I lowered my GT-S I let it settle for about a week and then go an alignment. That is a must do if you love your tires.

How do you like how it rides so far?

it handles better its pretty stiff which can be good and bad good for racing bad for bumpy ass roads in columbia mo but im happy. im planning on taking it in for alignment next week as long as i have the money

What kind of springs were they and how much was your drop? Make sure you have the money for your alignment or you'll be buying tires soon!

did you have to cut your bump stops?

no the stock struts were blown so i took the strut assemblies off of my old 90 gts that i reduced to a parts car so that helped with the time spent outside in the cold. i also had problems getting the sway bar links off of the rear assemblies so i cut them off and replaced them while i was at it
