Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    It could depend on your current set up that your car may not appear to be as low.
    Are you running stock wheels? if so, your front tires should tuck under the fender a bit. They should also grab the fender if you turn full lock every now and then too. :D

    but id probably follow your oil pan height, which seems to be about right cause its pretty much the same as mine.

    My sig is a pic of when it was not all the way down, so its a tad lower. I can snuggly slide a finger between my tire and fender. I dont have a pic of the way it currently looks.
    I don't even own this car anymore, but I'm too lazy to change the picture.

            USE TWO PIPE WRENCHES
            Or a pipe wrench and a vise

              thanks. we had the strut dropped down and we were trying to untighten it. we bolted it back into the frame, and used channel locks.


              Heres a note for anyone without an impact wrench:

              If you can't get the top bolt out of the old shock, angle grind the heck outt of two sides of the shock piece to hold it in a vice. then you cant unbolt it.

                  Sounds like your friend, corrosion. Maybe try some heat from a torch...

                      I've been using pb blaster and heat, still no luck. tonight I'm going to take the whole strut housing out and put the collar in a vise. then use heat and turn the housing to loosen it. hopefully I can get a better grip and crack this sucker

                            As far as height drop, yes. Handling, no.

                                Dont jump to conclusions yet. Why not try them out first?
                                Im damn happy with mine. The price is ridiculously awesome. Sure you can track these, just as long as theyre not all the way down when you do it. Im sure a few of the guys on here have tracked them before.

                                I would just give them a shot. Just cause theyre not as good as what we consider "the norm" here, doesnt mean theyre bad. You bought em already, why not try them?
