Default Lowered with Stage 3 front installed..

Few weeks ago i lowered my car on stock bolts, it looks much better now when it settled down.It was pretty easy.

Today i installed stage 3 front Lip. What a pain in the ****... Had to drill out rivets to remove stock lip..

Stage 3 set is from EOS, Fit and finish is pretty good.

Also ordered Forgestar F14 in Matte Golden Bronze, should have them in about 4 weeks... I think it will look nice with torch red...

I have that same set, I was hoping the install would be easy. Looks great though!

Curious how the matte gold bronze will match up with the car color, be sure to post pics!

I have installed stage 3 as well, have not lowered. Are you scrapping now? I have to be much more careful now, can't imaging how it would be after lowering it w/stage 3. I do like the lowered look

Car looks good lowered and with the splitter. Best of luck avoiding scraping the spoiler.

Looking forward to seeing the new wheels too.

I am thinking of replacing the stock splitter with the EOS stage 2. I am concern with the fit being good. Did you take any photos when removing or drilling out rivets?

A man torn .....did the stage 3 on my 16’ w/ z51 kit and was shocked at how many hits it took ...absolutely love the look but even un lowered ..had to cringe in a lot of circumstances. Have the stage 3 rear ....jI guess I would just néed to get the splitter “xpel’d” the poverty splitter spoils me with how little maintinence there is and all in all ....nice looking btw all my car have been daily drivers 15k plus a year

So far not scraping, but i also dont drive a lot. Time will tell

Btw, for those questioning the fitment of the EOS spoiler, it is pretty good fit, takes little adjusting and attaching winglets to the spoiler was pretty tight. But all in all it is a good product.

I will post pics with the new wheels once i get them.
