So I finally got to order my Fe5 shocks and struts and I slapped on some SSC springs and MOOG endlinks along with them and I LOVE the combo! Install was not really that tough, it was just a matter of adding the right amount of torque to all the bolts and having some time to finish the project. It took me about 5 hours with simple hand tools. Here's my pics, Enjoy!

Ew, steelies! lol, just playing. Drop looks good, you will probably see another quarter to half inch as it all settles. Enjoy!

nice nice.... love it. think i might do the same setup...
Thanks! You will not regret it! Drop is clean, gets low, but not so low that you scrape on every bump, and the ride is just right. This is my first Lowered car and I feared that it would be too bouncy or too stiff, but IMO SSC balances perfectly between the two.
