Lowered the SS

Well after 10 months I finally got tired of the wheel gap on my SS. I was saving for BC coils, but I won't be able to save enough by time sping/show season come around. I lowered the car with with the Tein S-Techs that were on my LS. A while back I was really hating on my Tein springs on my LS, but I now have a renewed loving relationship with them. I figured out that the reason I hated them so much was because they were on FE1 struts that I was told were FE5 struts. The FE1 struts and shocks were blown causing it to ride and handle like crap. I bought a new set of FE5 struts shocks and put the Teins on them and threw them on my SS. On to the pictures.
