Very nice! Yeah i didn't really know what I wanted by like Tony said, it's much easier to make it louder than more quiet.

H&R is like 70% of this forum, but Eibach are recommened too. H&R have issues with lips shearing off, Im not sure which one has better build quality therefore.

what size are you thinking...I was going to do 15mm F and 20 mm R, but was told the relatively skinny tires 275s in the back will start to look funny with 20mm. So i'm probably doing 15mm R. Now just have to settle on a brand.

I can't comment on the Eibachs, I just know that lip on both of the 15mm H&R spacers I had on my front wheels, broke off within a month of putting them on. That month did include a track day and an autox event, but that should not have been an issue in my opinion. I just know I will never get 15mm H&R spacers again. But I do believe it's an issue with the 15mm ones in particular and not so much the other sizes. The contact area between the actual spacer and the lip is very thin and therefore fragile.

And about tracking your car, be carefull what you say, do it once and you're hooked...
