17's are way too big for me. Anyways, out of topic. I see that you have Buddy Club coilovers. How are they? Had to cancel my Bilstein coilovers cause they're on back order for 6-8 weeks from Germany. I was thinking of Buddy Clubs. Heard they're good. Is that true?

Quoting from my pics/progress/build thread:

For now, they are set at 2.5" lower than stock, and have at least 0.75" left in the rear and more than that in the front.

I have the damping set at 8 in the front, and 5 in the rear I believe.

I am not sure if the pre-load is correct in the front.

It is definitely a firmer ride than stock, but not much different than the lowering springs i was running before.

It's comfortable enough that passengers don't notice the stiffness except on big potholes and such.

Handling is great, with my current wheel/tire setup it even gets a little tail happy if I push hard enough.

Definitely would recommend them, and would buy them again!
