I love seeing these vehicles lowered!

Also Billboard, you should continue that hood theme to the top of the Element.

These are some old pictures. Been too lazy to take new pictures cause my bike has my attention now. LOL! I feel like a traitor.... But I got Tein lowering springs with the SPC and Ingalls camber parts. Some bolt in the front and an arm in the rear. I also cut the rear spring to even out with the front cause the rear only dropped 2.1" and the front 2.4" or something pretty close to that. It bugged me so I chopped it.

(its got different tips now)


My favorite shot, but I'm a rookie at photoshoots.


This was my girlfriend's brother's Element. We bother had Tein springs, but he didnt have the camber kit and is tires were really worn down when he took this picture. So it looked like a bigger gap.

How much did you cut and did you cut the top or bottom of the spring?

one coil from the bottom. im really anal about cutting springs and stuff, but it really bothered me that the rear was higher then the front. then my friends convinced me it was ok and BAM! cut springs. ive seen my friends do it to civics all the time and a nissan 240sx, and i thought it was absolutely ghetto. but what can i say? i did it too :oops:

well.. lets see what I truly have. I got stock shocks, 255/35-20zr tires, and cut the rear spring to match with the front. it is hella bumpy, super rough, people hate to ride in it, and its terrible on a full stomache.

but... i like the fact that people wont ask me for rides, we always take their cars to save me some gas, it looks better with the cut, and ive got use to the bumpy/rough ride and pretty much like it. plus im stuck with it anyways. my bike is rougher then this so no complaints anymore

i just cut 3/4 of a coil from the bottom of my stechs...stiffened it up a little bit in the rear..originally it was quite a bitz bouncier..i think 3/4 was a safer move..as it still dropped it .5-.75 and i still have a 2 finger gap...mind you this is with my subwoofers and rear seats still inside..gf says its better too.


also...basssplayer..is that the SC rear bumper?
