and this shortens them, right? I would do it. I have respect for custom mods that no one can easily identify.

okay update, i jsut did the front one, took me forever i also dyed the bumper skin and such... made a big difference.. i think it will take some time for me to like it, used to my normal bumpers. anyways i took a video of me drilling out a shock... ill put it on here later

19 megs.. anywhere to host?
