Swift Springs with Stock Wheels

On my X Sedan I wanted to lower it and eventually put bigger wheels on it. Putting new wheels on it are not in my budget at the moment, but I was thinking of lowering it anyways.

Swift springs claim that they will only lower it about ~1", so I was wondering if anyone has lowered their G while keeping stock wheels and how it ended up looking. My rough opinion says that it wouldn't look bad, but I just wanted to know if someone has done it before.

That looks pretty sexy. You may have just made my decision for me. How is the install?

Thanks I had to pay a shop 250 for installation, a lot easier for them to do it due to having a lift, spring compressor etc. I also didn't have to get a camber kit and got my toe in spec all around and -1.7 camber all around witch isn't too bad on tire wear, pretty happy with results and ride quality definitely changed the look

Yeah that doesn't sound too bad at all. Luckily one of my neighbors works for a custom shop, and I can get a really great deal on custom work. I will definitely look into doing this!!

18" sport rims, with 15mm or 20mm spacers, and it will look fine. Go find some picture threads from dragion (screen name), and you'll see some really good shots that highlight this.

17" non-sport rims... probably not, but better than otherwise.

In my opinion I like my 17in wheels compared to the 18in sedan sports, coupe different story but the sedan ones don't look all that great mine either but I think they are better looking than the sedan sports

Well that's just awesome. But you're still going to need spacers.

Drop the car first and reasses things... Although 20mm spacer adapters are likely.

Figure around $200 for the set.

His car is dropped and nobody wants to reass anything (well, maybe the kardashians......).

LOL. Well, according to the OP it's not dropped yet, but that's a fair observation of spelling fail, and that's on me.

Don't you have a Mustang meet-up at Burger King to get to?
