    Yes, I'm going to give those 225 springs a try. I believe they will be in the range I want.
    Your front wheels are hanging way down from the wheel wells. Did you do more than just cut the upper bumper stops?

    No, nothing else done. That wheelie pic was stock control arms with all new bushings set up very loose and Moroso trick springs. After that we changed to the Santhuffs along with TRZ control arms.

    The side view picture...is that with santhuff springs and TRZ arms? Did those arms have deeper set spring pockets than the stockers? Or did you use a spacer?

    Yes it was. According to TRZ those pockets are a bit deeper but it's hard for me to say how much. Once the new arms were on the trick springs were shot and we went with the Santhuffs so I didn't have a good comparison.

    So the side view is Santhuff springs and NO spacers in the TRZ arms?
