Succesfully Lowered the 4dr LT

Only took about 3 1/2 hours, I used both of the DIY's and pieces them together....looks good I think, I did not cut my bump stops and I did the mudflap delete. I have noticed the suspension is soooo much stiffer, i felt like i was going to roll going around turns before. I had very little difficulty, the only hard part was removing the control arm, don't quote me but I used a 17mm wrench on the back side to hold it still, you have to slide the boot off and hold it...that wa the only thing that took me a while to figure out, I used the method without spring compressors but I used them, they made it a little easier to slide the spring back up into the strut well.

I hope you all like it, I'm getting all black 17''s and 35% tint when I get my taxes and I've already ordered my head and tail overlays along with a 6'' antenna...lemme know what you think.

thanks.
