Thanks! Yes, I agree it's funny how having a car lower to the ground makes it looks so much better. The stock ride height for the LS is way too high and unnecessary. I know it's tempting but it's not wise to cut them you'll have troubles in the end. Just be patient and get yourself coilovers if you have the cash or get B&G's!

It really is tempting to cut them because its probably going to be a year or more before I can go back to work I'm hoping I can find some used springs cheap but I've come to the conclusion used ones don't exist your car is the same exact car as mine but yours definitely looks way better

Your grandmother must've been a pretty funky lady to drive a two-door lol. I'd tone down on the window stickers if I were you tbh.

I can relate to you on that, I did have Meegan racing springs on before. I got them for $50 at a scrap yard they weren't pretty but they did make my cobalt lower at least. Check on craiglist or local areas for used lowering springs. Nice gotta love the metallic orange your car will be looking good just in the matter of time.

Haha would of been even better if she got the SS or SC Yeah it was cheapist for her but she kinda got scammed since it was used and been in wrecks without her knowing. That's why the bumper's aren't the exact color from the body. I'm not adding decals to back end it's completely clean. I just wanted the backsides covered haha. I got a few more I want to apply then am done.

you have a tsudo exhaust...just wondering how good it sounds and if it worth it because im stuck between the 2.5 inch catback from zzp and the tsudo catback and also how high was your ls originally? Because i have an LT and that looks nice i can buy it but i dont want my ride lower than your after picture.
