Just got my springs in. I have a quick question. Will i NEED a adjustable panhard bar when lowering it with these? I plan on getting it regardless.

So its been nice this past week so i decided id paint all the little pieces i missed last year since it got to cold. I got to paint the trim on the hatch, trims on the ttops ,middle ttop bar and my 3rd brake light cover. It makes a BIG difference now...the car looks more complete. Still needs alot of work.. It hasnt even been a year and shes come along way. HEre are some pics of the third brake light cover


This is just painted with the can not rolled on.. same process though.


Here it is sanded with 1500 and 2000. tiny specs of orange peel stilll there.


Polished ...no wax

Ok i finally got to having my sportline springs, adjustable panhard bar and steering brace wonderbar. The car feels much better as expected. Next plans are some Gta sway bars and some LCA...Should also make a notable difference... I was worried the sportlines would be to low but their fine. Good thing i went with them instead of the pro kit....Here are some before and after shots

BEFORE
check out the yellow 3rd gen in the back




AFTER

I don't know if they're that much lower than the Pro Kit. My car (granted it doesn't have an engine up front and many interior parts are out) seems to be not that much higher out back. I think it depends on how its setup or installed. I've seen cars with sportlines that seem higher than pro kits, and I've seen pro kits that are higher than stock. However, my car is definitely lower than stock. I'm basing this on the way the rear of the car is. The front doesn't have the front springs in yet as they're being ungrateful little bastards....

Anyway, I remember those little Trans Am rides. Don't see them much anymore. The car looks great, can't tell its a roll on paintjob.

Thanks...I thought it would be lower honestly.. But after riding with them i figured any lower and it would be a pain in the a$$ to drive. The car drops a noticable difference once im in the car or have someone in with me,so any lower would be bad.
