My Viper\'s New Shoes

Now I know how popular those spinners were, but here is what I settled on for my car:

It's on my list. I'm just not sure I want to deal with a car as low as Eibachs will return. A friend of mine has them on his '94 and it is only about 3" off the ground. It scrapes on everything. I can't do that to my car.

I'm considering Northwind's lowering perches, but I know someone with those as well and they actually don't appear to be quite enough.

I think I'd be happy with something in the middle. I just don't know what that is. Does anyone besides Eibach make lowring springs for the Viper?

Looks awesome! BUT YOU HVAE TO LOWER YOUR VIPER. Waaaaayyy too much room between the wheel wells. Then it would be PERFECT!

I'll lower it for you when I get home, to show you how much better it will look when those truck wheel wells are filled in. :thumb: Looks really good though. I like those rims. :nod:

I liked them too, but since they needed new tires and 18's have been such a good deal I couldn't pass this up. The originals are cleaned and stored away in the garage for safe keeping. I haven't seen another red RT locally with the LM's so I'm still happy. If it becomes common I'll bring back the yellow wheels.

Re: My Viper\'s New Shoes

It's funny. When my '96 was new, about 80% of the people "got" the yellow wheels, 20% didn't.

Five years later, 20% got it, 80% didn't like them.

Those new wheels look good. I had considered changing wheels, but didn't know what I'd do with the Sneaky Pete on the side of the hood. I thought it would need to be removed, but I think it looks great on your car. /images/graemlins/headbang.gif

Hey Matt, where did you get those driving light covers? I need some. Last I heard ..they don't make them any more.
They're factory covers. I believe Dodge stopped using them around '99.

Re: My Viper\'s New Shoes

The reason I dont like eibachs is that they are BOUNCY! The car is a lot dartier than it was before, rather than more controlled. Ive driven and ridden in a car with the EMI/PENSKE/Moton ajustable coil over setup and loved it. Its a LOT more money at $4-5K installed, but IMO worth every dime.

Re: My Viper\'s New Shoes

Yhose look like BBS LM's , correct? I would leave them alone, as they have a nice shine to them and they look even more purposeful in person. Nice ride, and congrats on the tasteful update.
