Nice ride man!! Has a nice flow going on... I agree with Konstantino that you should get some new wheels and suspension.

HEY!! I just noticed that signature pic!! Is that how you want it to look in the future?

Yes I want to lower it next and grab some rear control arms while I am at it.

I can not decide on what wheels I want to go with this spring.

Forgot to mention I have also added the upper, lower, and trans powerflex bushings. Not even close to hard as far as install goes. Next to no vibes in the cabin other than low rpm in 1st and bye bye nasty engine slop! Made shifting feel so much more connected!

Wife took a pick of me driving today

Well as a holiday gift to myself I picked up the last available set of Exel TZ-10s today at a steal. You have seen them on UK SUVs car and a few others I am sure. I do not know the weight of these but they cant be much heavier than the S-Lites. I do not track my car so I am not concerned.

Here is a quik photoshop. Yes I know it shows 5 lug

Yea no doubt! His car made me have to get these wheels! When I called and ordered them they said they were the last 4. I dont know if that means they will no longer make them or if its just low stock.

I do need to find out if I need new lugs or not. Anyone know?
