    Ordered the wrong window regulators so if anyone needs 2 manual window regulators WITHOUT wing/vent windows you can have them.

    replaced both window regulators and added some true glide to all moving parts as well as inside the window channel rubber.
    so much better and smoother

    Installed Belltech Lowering spindles.
    As well as the Ball joint flip.

    Now my lower control arms are rubbing on my inside lip of the wheels.
    May have to add a spacer

    What size wheels do you have? I want to install the lowering spindles so I need to know what size wheels to plan for.

    TIA

    I think for drop spindles PLUS a BJ flip you cant run anything smaller than 16".

    That's good to know. I don't plan to do the ball joint flip and plan to use 16s. Didn't see any decent 15" tires in 205/60 or 215/60 sizes...

    I'm thinking of using the flat face, 16x7 Supras, with 37mm offset. I THINK they bolt up but I need to test fit it...

    Yup. Learning that. My wheels now rub on my lower Control arms at full lock.
    So im going to see if these 15" wheels will fix the problem. If not gonna add some spacers or grind them down to clear my wheels.

    Definitely.
    Less noise as well.
    Has some small scratches here and there. But not bad.
    Easy to install.

    I like! Yep, looks cleaner. Less lines. Plus solid windows are good theft deterrents.

    These tires rub and burned them through. Haha
