Before & After Sportline

Well over the weekend my brother me and a few friends installed sportlines on my car. As of now I don't like them they are good on a smooth road but theres almost no smooth roads. On the rougher roads its bouncy so they maybe gone by the weekend. I never even planned on modding this car it is supposed to be low car payment during college. But my friend sold them to my brother and they don't fit a redline so he gave them to me.
Before-






After- Car is pretty dirty and the pictures arent the best

Thanks, I wish my brother and friends could understand yes maybe it looks nice but if the ride is bad I dont want to keep them on. It seems like the ride is stiffer now. Today I took the accord to go register for class and the ride was night and day. I like the looks and handling but I don't know if I can deal with being jolted over every small thing in the road. I want to see if I can take the redline out later and compare.

i lowered my 03 cavy (when i had it ) and it took me 2 weeks and i put stock springs back on

sometimes its not worth messing a good car up

your cobalt , not the cavy, it wasnt worth it

Have you noticed that the paint on your bumpers does not match the paint on the car?? Just noticed that in your sig.

Me? I dont have a sig. But these pictures arent the best I turned done the exposure compensation on the camera before hand. That lets in less light and these pictures were not taken in even lighting, just a few quick pictures.
And about it being bouncy that pretty much went away its now more sitff than stock which I expected. As of now I'll live them on longer before I make up my mind. I was in my friends wrx tonight which has coilovers on it and wow that was a rough ride.

coilovers should be renamed to ''rough rider springs" - for those who dont mind hitting their head on the roof ,on the smallest bump ever

Haha well I love road racing f1, dtm, le mans, rolex, motogp I even went to the 24hours of rolex last year. But when it comes to practical use vs. comfort you have to weight in how many track days you will do and how rough the ride is. And really you could feel every bump he says he is used to it now but he only wanted the coilovers to lower his car he wont ever do any track days the most he will do is run the 1/4mile. For me is turning out giving them some time to set in has helped them and it dosent feel so bad now but I can't believe what some people will deal with for only street driving.
