Hello all!
I finally joined the forums. I've been lurking around and decided to join. :D

I picked up my new (to me) Solara recently. It's a 2008 silver sle 3.3 v6 hardtop with 11k miles.

I've had numerous cars in past few years and decided getting this Solara was the best idea. So far, this car seems to be everything I could want in a vehicle... and more.

I'm looking forward in getting a ton of insight through these forums. My future plans include a drop (a MUST - I don't care for the way it sits stock. A little too high for my liking). I'd also like new wheels and maybe a decent exhaust and sri.

-Dan

Hey guys,

I have a set of Eibach's coming to me within the next few days.

Anybody know where I can get them installed? Can I do the install myself...? YES. Do I have the tools, time, or patience...? NO.

If anyone can help me out, I'm willing to pay - OR, recommend a decent shop here in Phoenix, AZ.

Thanks all.

Hey all,

I figured I'd post a little update (snapped a pic this morning at work) to show where I'm at thus far...

I had my springs installed this weekend - looks GREAT in person.

So, to date here are the mods:
-Removed all emblems from the trunk
-Blacked out front grille
-Eibach springs
-19" rims with 225/35/19 tires (when I replace them soon, they will be 225/40/19)

Anywho, just wanted to show a quick pic... enjoy. :D

Thanks all!

I'll have to take a better pic. The rear and front are pretty much level (maybe slightly more that a finger gap). Should be perfect once I get 40 series tires.

Here's a little before and after at the shop:

Which Eibach kit did you use? Did you do struts as well or just springs? Definitely liking the drop and wheels!
