still don't know how to plug photos straight to SS site, sorry...
go to

http://s724.photobucket.com/al...aiter

I will add more photos soon, here are two. (now more!)
Also, after browsing this site, it seems like one can't even make a typing error without getting ripped a new-one, so for the "sensitive" members, the other photos on my photobucket site are an unintended consequence of this thread, rather than a "bump" for my other current thread for those wheels on my photobucket album.


anywhoo, 18" matte black IPD Pegasus replicas with Yokohamas, IPD lowering springs, IPD front and rear swaybar set, but stock (and tired) shocks and struts. Clearance is tight, and HD shocks and struts will hopefully pick the car up enough to alleviate some of the tire rub during tight maneuvering and over bumps and whoops at normal driving speed.

My boy works for IPD, and I love that company, but I'm on 225 40 18's and as I said clearance is very tight with the IPD springs... they might have cut these a tad short if one chooses to ride on 18's. Or maybe I have 115K OEM shocks and struts and my tire rub issues are my problem. That's for all you to discuss.

Small side note... notice the small piece of plastic directly behind front wheel... it is faded grey compared to the rest of the plastic body trim. I left this like this intentionally so as to show how much of a difference a few hours of masking-off and an application of "Forever Black" plastic treatment dye makes. Something like $13 bucks for a bottle that will cover several cars worth of trim. If we had video feed you'd see me holding up the bottle of Forever Black Billy Mays style with gleaming smile


more pics later, go IPD!! Go gul.

Wow i want that suspension on my 850

I'm running the same IPD coils as well. VERY happy with them so far. Good stance and decent comfort for how low the car is. Decent price, too!

Stu- Bjorn Vader needs a set of those matte black pegs... Needs them....
Needs them... Jedi mind trick working? eh, thought i'd try.

I agree- ride and stance is very nice.... can't wait till Bilstiens are on.

Re: 850 T5R on IPD suspension setup (King Tut)

Tut-
I'm not sure what type of rotors they are, but I think Zimmerma is a safe bet... they were installed on the car when I bought it . Regardless of what they are they will soon be replaced with a big brake kit front and rear. I just spent the last 5 years driving a 244tii, and was accustomed to descent braking power. These are the stock calipers and even with good pads and a brand new master cylinder, these are pitiful. Scary even. People still pick through yards looking for 80's 200/700 brake sets, and I now see why. I wouldn't dream of adding any more power to the driveline without first upgrading the brakes. This is one of the only aspects of the 850 I am unhappy with.

Your mind tricks are working. . .I've been thinking about it.
