If you have springs in already then I would do it.

If you haven't changed your springs and were planning on just doing the perchs I wouldn't until you did springs as well. It's quite a bit of work to just change out to perchs.

Hell to the yes. Do you have spacers? Its hard to tell but those pics but they would add some major flushness.

Car looks sick I can't wait too see the full shoot once you get all your mods put on.

Did Ivo put them in for you? Does your car still fit on the lift?

You'll be fine driving at this height, but if you do the lip setup you wanted to do you're gonna have about 1 inch ground clearance left haha.

PS: Rear fender roll and even bigger spacers need to be done soon to finish the rear stance. I'm gonna bug you until you do it. You know I always give good advice!
