    yes I know I need to mow my grass lol

    Then I took the mud flaps off, because for some reason it just looked strange. Lowered the back more this is how it sits now...only pic I have at the moment not a good one. I need spacers for the back as soon as I get rid of the dumb f50 rear lip we all know so well.....

    I know it doesnt look like it in the pic but the back is still half an inch higher than the front. These buddy clubs are great so far. The front is up about 2 inches from the top. This means I could lower the front by about 3 to 4 more inches. The rear is in the middle for now so could go down another 2.5 to 3 inches or more. I am very please at the drop ability of these I was tentative based on the Japanesse description of the drop did not seem anywhere near as much as it dropped it. Hope all f50 owners enjoy because we know how hard and expensive the parts are for these cars and not easy to come by! Thanks again Grant (freshlikesushi) and Marksport.

    the japanese instructions give you the range you "should" be riding at. when you go out of the range you go out of spec. I just recently raised my car an inch and it made a big difference in ride. Alot smoother...

    AME-VIP - yes it is 20% tint, not too dark but helps from the florida sun.

    Mista808 - I am sticking with these rims for now maybe a change in the future with more money, as for a kit I am not loking for a whole kit I just want the JDM bumpers with the moulding and and lip kit like a g-games kit.

    What happens to the electronic suspension on a F50 when you go coilover?

    nismorg - What happens to the electronic suspension on a F50 when you go coilover? When I removed the stock suspension (mine did have the adjustable dampenign sus) I just removed the round spinning device from the top of the strut and then unplugged it from the other end of the cord. Something tells me these wires are standard even on the ones that do not have the adjustable struts. Once I removed the plug the car operated without any concerns, in other words the car did not freak out and give me all of thoes error messages that the F50's have on the navigation screen.

    crazyhawaiian - i did not measure them but here is a comparison pic, they are much smaller obviously this is the front, If I had left the coilover where it was at in this picture the rim would have been inside the fender and I would not have been able to drive or turn the car. I raised it about and inch and a half.

    actually those little square motors that sit on top of the struts just twist off and then unplug harness. They aren't screwed on but rather locked in but some lefty loosy pressure and maybe 90 degrees turn and they come right out. That is the very first thing I did when I changed my suspension.

    Thanks for that comparison shot. Nice to know you can nearly lay it on the ground.

    Btw I went 20% all around on my F50 and damn it is dark! lol
