New Belts Installed

My red belts from Suncoast arrived late yesterday and I had some time today so i decided to installed them. The color really matches the caliper paint pretty close and I like how it adds a nice little pop of color.

Your vehicle is coming along great . Now you need to lower it, and add some black 18's or 19's !

Thanks Johnny...

Lowering is done ...I'm only waiting on the rims. Got a message that they've completed the engineering phase and are moving onto the machining phase, so it should only be another few weeks!

Lowering

I have been thinking about lowering my 2003 S. Is it okay to just replace the springs or should I replace the shocks too? I only have 30k miles on the car.
Also, is a 1" drop enough to notice? I am considering H & R.

All feedback is welcome!
