@Plxdjake89, @mike the snake:

How low did the coilovers come set from the factory? Halfway? (If the 20-50mm lowering range is correct, I think halfway would be 35mm). Or how many threads?

Definitely curious on people's lowering settings if they're going to share pics. If you didn't adjust them from the factory then I'm curious as to what factory spec is?

I'm guessing mine is lowered 1.5 inches. The rear at first was lower but rubbed too much (I'm running 265's in the rear) so I raised it to where it's at now in the pic with no rubbing issues.

I'm planning on going another 1/4" to 1/2" lower front and rear.
