It is, this pic is the current set up. Rear- Moog CC821 springs, not cut, no iso's and sitting on MM adjustable lower control arms at their minimum setting. Front - BMR SP028 springs not cut, new ProThane iso's sitting in factory control arms. When I ran the cut 04 GT springs in the front it did sit a little higher, which I actually prefer, so I may use some Steeda springs shims in the front to push it up a tad more.

Looks great!

I agree a spacer to lift the front with the roads around here is needed.

ThorJrTurbo - I have those springs recommended by Kuch on my car and have been real happy with them. I did replace my control arms at the same time so that helped too.

Thor, just so you know, if using the Moog springs on the back with factory control arms, it will sit a little lower than mine. The adjustable control arms seat the springs higher than stock, but I wanted the adjustable for any future changes.

Kuch,

Yea. I am waiting to purchase everything before putting it on. The springs were the cheapest to buy. LOL. I should be getting the adjustable control arms later this month. Thank you for the heads up.

FYI - I used the CHE adjustable arms and it raised the rear 1/4" even with the Moog CC821 springs.  The MM arms don't have that problem but not sure how much of a drop they will see, but Kuch might be able to give some insight there.
