UPdated Pics! Thoughts on suspension?, NO 56K

i was extremely bored this weekend so decided to drive over to a local business complex and take some pics. i still think the drop is too subtle. really debating on coilovers, what do you guys think? i always try to get my pic angles to minimize the wheel gap.

I think it's low enough, consider your front lip is low too

my front lip has 5.5in clearance to the ground and i still hit sometimes over a speedbump or ramp to the mall

How long ago did you drop it? Yesterday I saw 2 Gs on S-techs at our Florida meet and they looked pretty darn low. One of the guys said it took a while before they fully settled, so give it 2-3 weeks if you just recently dropped it.

808HerbzG35: it was repaired after a minor accident. how could you tell?

Finiti35: its been about half a year so i doubt its settling issues. if anything its been getting higher, but thats probably just me.

If you look at the first pic and look closely at the rear fender then the rear bumper their is a slight color difference.

Either that or he meant is the lower valance painted. Ive heard before that IP is a bi^ch to match, its not noticeable. You car looks stunning bro.

The reason why I like your drop is because the space is even all around. The space on the sides of the wheel is the same as from the top of the wheel to the fender. Its a very clean and even drop. I also know where you're coming from. When I first got into fixing up cars, I wanted to really drop my car really low. Make it so that it was obvious to everyone that my car was slammed. I thought it was cool... now I look back at it and see it as nothing but an inconvenience of having to always be so careful over speedbumps and driveways. The G is a classy car, and this is a clean classy drop. Keep it.
