Aight, My dad is the parts manager for an Acura dealership, and took my car to have my stuff put on, and now, just left me a message about how my car is now handling like an NSX. lol

He goes "I'm looking forward to taking this on the tollway on the way home, im gonna beat it."

I hope he was joking..............hehe

Now, I just need to put my rims back on!

woo hoo...lowered legend! :)

Hey Nick, let us know what stiffness settings you used as well. Can't wait to see some pics. I get mine put on on Tuesday and should have the car back the next day.

Hey guys,

I left my Koni shocks at stock settings. And used the stock perch height. (I know, im no fun) haha.

I just didn't want it too low, because I have +40mm offset rims, and was worried about rubbing!

I'll post pics soon! :)

Oh man, that car handles great with the Eibach drop, and the Koni shocks at original settings.

I put my rims back on today, and drove it around. I have no rubbing at all!! and I have about 1 1/2 finger gap in the back, and about 2 1/2 fingers in the front. I have 17x7 +40mm with 215/45/17 tires on them. No rubbing, and the wheels stick out just a tad, but tucked really nice with the lowering! :)

I'll post pics soon! :)

Slamming of the G2?

Sounds like a futuristic porn movie.

Nope, I didn't touch my perch settings at all. But, I did measure each perch, and it is 3/4 of an inch drop per each perch. :)

Hey Nick!

Glad to finally see that you (and your dad;)) are enjoying your mods!

The reason you are not rubbing is that your rim size is still within acceptable clearance.

Your rims are 17x7+40mm off. Anything higher like a 7.5 width would definitely cause rubbing.

The extra .5 inches on a wider wheel equal 12.7mm.

In theory, you have a +52.7mm of offset (or 12.7mm more clearance on the inside of the wheel well) right now so dont be afraid to really slam it!!! :D

Although if you do decide to, you may want to stiffen the koni's a notch so you wont bottom out on these treacherous Illinois roads.

Meet season is finally coming so hope to see you (and possibly your dad) soon!
