It finally rolls! Got my beam on today. 2" narrowed with adjusters and 2.5" drop spindles.

I'm running 145/65s up front. Bought them online. Their made for smart cars. $60 a piece. I had my beam done by a local guy. Here's his info:



Have you lowered your rear end at all Sam?

Not yet, want to get the right tool to do it so I don't have torsion bars flying at me. You going on the cruise tomorrow? I am hoping I can throw some better tires on my car before tomorrow evening. What did the beam work cost you?

I probaly won't make it tomorrow. I literally put the wheels on and rolled in out of the shop. Still don't have brakes or tie rods on. I've got a buddy who has the tool and is gonna do my rear end sometime soon. I'll send you a message and maybe we can do yours at the same time.

Beam cost me $150. I supplied the adjusters and already had narrowed tie rods. Still cheaper than buying an already narrowed beam.
