So I was finally was able to get the iM to the shop and get everything installed.

Overall I'm happy, wish the springs had more drop but that's ok. The front could also use a little camber as there is a slight poke.

Wheel specs are Rotiform TMBs in 19x8.5 in +35 offset and tires are 235/35-19 Ohtsu fp8000s. The springs are H&R Sport part# 29084-5.

Wheel to top fender arch specs:

Front before 26.5" after 26"
Rear before 27.25" after 26.5"
All around gap is two fingers.

Note: 235/35-19 are 0.50" taller than stock. Also before measurements were taken with stock tires on.


Let me know your thoughts!

That looks fantastic! Great choice...did you change out your struts too?
No sir left the stock ones in..

Must say these springs ride very nicely with the stock struts.

I must say it looks spot on..I'm telling myself I'm holding out for coil overs..might not.
Thanks Cosmo!

I was tempted to get coil overs but considering I drive this car 50 miles daily to and from work I wanted it to be a smooth ride. That and the cost of the coilovers being a bit on the high side (for a reputable brand).

I won't lie I wish it was about an 0.75" lower but we'll see if the springs settle at all. For now I'm content with the outcome.

You don't really have to replace the struts.

Good looks man, those wheels match the overall look so well ! Doesn't look out of place, but enhances the look hand in hand.

Nice functional drop, nothing too crazy.
