Suspension: K-Sport Kontrol Pro's

Before: (terrible photo but it's the only one i have beforehand)


After:

Car is looking good! I see you did a xenon retrofit, do you notice your xenon beam jiggle a bit at night since installing your new suspension? My Koni's are set to full soft but I still notice a slight jiggle. May also be my thin summer tires. Just curious

Drop looks good. Camber looks a bit funny up front. Could just be the angle of the pics though.
