What color are stock MSM springs. I ask because my car sits like you after picture. I bought it used so I have no idea if I have stock springs.

Are those larger than stock tires on the '04 rims in the after picture?

Looks good.

What can I say, I'm more comfortable with a wrench in my hand than a camera...

I'm not sure if xtrapsi's car looks so different due to the larger diameter tires, or if the Illumina shock body is really that much shorter than the MSM Bilsteins. I might add the coil over sleeves from Fat Cat if he ever gets around to completing the 3.25" spring mounts for the '99-05 cars.

Yep, almost as much as stock. It handles great though.

Jim, I take it those are aftermarket MazdaSpeed springs as opposed to stock MSM springs right?
