it has stock suspension with cut springs right now :td: :td:

ill probably swap the rear coilover/agx from my other cressida over today if i get motivated enough to get off my lazy ass.

dont know yet if i wanna buy coilovers for the front or just get some stiffer cut springs for now cause i kinda wanna do air suspension.

did some more wheel fitment testing today. i took out the springs to see how the wheels would sit in the fenders. im swapping in the suspension from the other x6 tomorrow. heres how the car looks springless...

I think it looks pretty good and will be my ride height goal. ill be scraping frame everywhere though haha, i scraped my catconverter coming out from the garage to the drive way LOL.

also hammered out the rear fenders some more so i can tuck more tire :tu: heres how it looks now...

i cant go anylower in the front with the 14s for now till i get a custom exhaust made or else it will be sitting on the cat and resonator.

all you need is a hammer and a heat gun :) just take your time pounding it out fpr a whole day or two. its not going to look perfect but you will have good wheel clearance. i didnt want to spend money on that stupid blue fender roller so i used what i already had in the house.

Did the paint chip or bubble with the heat?

Sorry, trying to get my head around cressida suspension (still new)

- they have independent rear suspension?
- or does it have to be change from a newer model?
- how is the ride? bumpy? o.O ?

I keep coming back to see updates on this car - love the stance now :D

paint chipped a little bit and you can see pound marks but its nothing a little body filler cant fix :tu: :D

83 and up have IRS, 82 and older have solid axles. if you cut 2 coils from your stock springs and take out the bump stops it still rides nice suprisingly.

These may be dumb questions - but...
Isn't this kinda hard on the sidewalls - and maybe a bit dangerous at speed and in cornering (such as you can do)?
Couldn't a similar look be obtained with taller wheels and lower profile tires - unless the "bulged" look is what you were trying for?
If the bump stops are removed - it would seem you are confined to pretty smooth pavement - as in "Not for snowy states with pavement heaves."

well it was never my intent to track this car or drive it in the snow/everyday.... i have my other car for daily driving which has 185/60/14 on 6.5" wide wheels :) plus i dont drive fast or retarded on public roads like other people do anyway and if i do decide to track it i would be using a wheel/tire combo more suited for it.

yes you can get the same effect with bigger wheels and low profile tires but i already had the 14s and a bunch of 14" tires so why spend more money? plus i like having big bulge hahahaha

actually taking out the bump stops give it a better ride, that is if you intend to lower it alot. or else you would be bottoming out on the bump stops everywhere. and if you live in a snowy state you should know to have a stock car on the side to drive in the snow unless your retarded.

anymore questions????

Stretching isnt too big a deal. Check your tire pressure regualarly and it shouldn't pop off the bead, also it can make the sidewall of the tire have less give (stiffer) which is actually better for cornering and such.

But mostly... it just looks good :D. With wheel fitment like that, how goofy do you think it would look if the tire was the proper width for the wheel? The tire can still tuck this way, and the lip of the wheel can be +flush with the fender :D.
