I'm very happy with the results. Thanks again Adrenaline!

Please forgive the crappy setting but I was excited to see before and after differences!

Makes me wish we had FL roads up here in MA. Wishful thinking, I know. Oh, and by the way, the car looks awesome.
Thanks for the props!

Yeah, the roads here are not too bad. All except for the ones destroyed by annual coverage of salt water tidal flow from passing storms. Thankfully, most of those are along the coastline!

Hey JP!!! Good to hear from you my friend! Miss you guys!

I will reveal the set-up even at the risk of flaming. :)

It's Vogtland Springs, with KYB GR2 Front Strut Inserts and KYB Gas-A Just Rear Shocks.

I was actually not quite happy with the rear ride height once installed. So, I cut one coil off the bottom of the springs on the rear to get things where I wanted them.

I took a little of the negative camber out of the rear with some shims from GS and I have some 15mm spacers installed on the rear to bring the wheel / tire out close to the fender lip. All in all, I'm ecstatic with the results. The car handles so much nicer than it did with the stock worn out pieces. Also, I drove it before and after I cut the rear coils and there is no noticeable difference in handling / drivability. I can still put two full sized adults in the back seat, put the top down and hit pretty big bumps with no tire contact or bottoming out.

Now you're gonna make me want to lower my NG vert. Looks fantastic!
Thanks Fiveiron! I really appreciate the props! I've wanted to do it for a long time. I still wasn't able to afford the Konis that I really wanted but I do have a big family to feed so sometimes I have to settle. I'm sure the Konis would make me even happier but my life, for the last few years anyway, has been about finding balance. Even when I don't want to. :(
