1. I suck at taking pictures.

2. I need to find a cool location to take some pictures. Maybe I'll drive up PCH and take some pictures there. :D

3. My car also now has Magnaflows, but you can only really see them in one picture.

Anyway, here they are:

How much did the shop charge you and which shop?

$70 a corner, plus $80 for an alignment at Big Brand Tire Company in Oxnard, California (They're a local tire chain).

The sticker is for NBVC Port Hueneme. My dad just retired from the Navy, but my mom and I both work as janitors on the base. She's full-time, and I'm part-time, since I go to school during the fall/spring.

Btw for future reference...the front coilovers are insanely easy to install. Most anyone could install them, then if you don't want to deal with the rear shock mounts, have the shop do those. Just trying to save some peeps some $$...the fronts just swap right out, no spring compressing or any of that crazy stuff :). Fronts would take roughly 15-30 minutes a side, maybe 20 minutes total (for both sides) if you'd ever worked with the front shock assemblies before.

crossbow is correct. The problem with me is that I'm lazy, and my dad has some really subpar tools. I would have had to buy a new set just to install the fronts, and I didn't want to have to do all that just to get them on. :D

Yes they are adjustable, and I got them from heronew when he had a group buy for $730. You can contact him for pricing now, or you can contact another sponsor to see if they carry the Ksports too.

Heh, I tried already. The shop tightened the bolts with air tools and so I couldn't remove them with the crappy tools my dad has. Anyway, with the drop now, I rarely scrape, but I'm sure if I drop it another 1/4" to 1/2", I'd scrape like no tomorrow.

come on man, the fronts are easily adjustable, bring the front down a little and level that shit out. :)

Actually I bet it is level. The side skirts look perfectly level to the ground. The front wheel well is higher than the rear, so it looks like it isnt level, but actually is.
My drop is similar to his and its level.

ah, perhaps you're right. my defanition of level for our car is equal wheel gap in front and back. i think if you do that it gives it a nice aggressive looking stance.

JrV is correct with his assement. If you look at all the 6's with springs, springs that drop the same in the front/rear, usually end up with a little bit more gap in the front. The 6 already has a aggressive stance since the lines of the car are diagonal. If I lowered the front anymore than it already is, I'd have to be even more careful than I already am.

I probably should take some better pictures though. ;)

I'm with you, my H&R's put my wheel gap perfectly even unless I'm rolling with a full tank of fuel. I like the way it looks that way.
