Well Im Tucking...

Quick story before pics. I have SSC springs, which give a pretty good drop but are mostly designed for handling. Well i hate the raked look every Chevy has now-a-days, and even w/ my lowering springs the back end was still higher. Well a friend of mine has B&Gs on an SS and a HUGE system in the back, and it was too low for him. So we switched rear springs, and heres the result...

Before:



After:





These are just some quick pics i took at a gas station, ill upload new ones tomorrow. I think if i put the front ones on it will be tucked all the way, and that would be freaking badass, cuz ive never really seen a balt tucking w/out coilovers or cutting springs. Btw, no i didnt weigh my trunk down, no i didnt have any passengers in the car, and no its not photoshopped. These are 100% legit pics, and ill get more tomorrow.

UPDATED PICS









These are from eye level, so thats wat it looks like if ur standing looking at it:





And some from level view:

i havent heard anything yet, and i drove them at work doing pizza deliveries for 3 hours...but i know if i go over any slighty big speed bump or what not they will. and i did buy a four door for a reason, so i kinda need to still be able to put certain ppl back there...

Tucking FTW man! Looks good.
Those 225/45s dont look to bad actually. I would have thought they would be too meaty for 18s, looks good though!
