:thumbup: :thumbup: Looks great, I like the stock look. Not too many cars can wear it well, but the Solara does

^ agreed. We see so many done up Solara here that we neglect to appreciate it in stock form. Solaras are damn secksi!

Did you do the install yourself? If not, why didn't you wait to get struts aswell?

btw-Fresco, I think this is the first time I've seen your car :thumbup:

^ no i didn't install them myself, i dont really have the tools, and even if i did im not very mechanical so it wouldve been a mess.

i didn't go with new struts because i dont really need them right away, but i will get them done in the next month or so.

ya just got the car about month and a half ago, and im very happy with it

^thanks, i wasn't sure if the springs were even all around, cause the drop looks pretty even, and i seen one that wasn't and that was because the springs were even.

yes the solara makes me feel very classy, and then i put in the wood dash kit, whice made me feel even more classy:p:

Looks good...by the way join us at www.solaraguy.com as there is a Group Buy on right now for the tokico shocks at

http://www.zer0.info/solaraguy/viewtopic.php?t=9828

Also, not all solara owners who have dropped....have replaced their shocks. There is one dude who dropped it at 10K miles...with oem shocks..he's at 60K and nothing needs replacement. :eek:

Just make sure you get an alignment after your drop..alignments are cheaper than new tires!

And if you just got them installed, well then they are still going to settle down even more . In a month or two you'll notice it.

did you happen to look at the old springs? were the original springs wider in diameter than the new ones?
