    The worn parts worry me more than the stance, but I understand the messed up geometry that goes with a lower sitting car. But I love the low stance of my 500, something about it is just, right. The gray car is jacked up in back, lower than stock little in front, and has never given me any trouble in over fifteen years.

    I'll be like Doc, take a pic every time I fill up! I do use Shell for the 500...

    Holy crap you guys lose the leaves early in Illinoisy. Or do they tax leaves for leaving?

    This was taken before I retired. My 300 at work. That was my reserved spot in the basement garage. A shot (from my company car) of the other end of the garage and the door headed out.

    Steve, if you are referring to me, I agree. I purchased the car this way (3 years ago) and there are a few more pressing matters on her that I need to take care of before I get to the suspension. I do not see much if any benefit from running the front of a car so high, though the rear leafs are sagging a bit and that probably amplifies the extra height of the front end.

    And for the record, I knew it was an honest question. I have read enough of your posts to know when your are asking an honest question and when you are taking a swipe :D

    :rofl: If they could, Im sure they would. Pic was taken last year. Ive had her out a couple times this year, but have not taken any pics.

    If JB gets elected, the first thing on his docket will be to repeal the flat tax, believe you me.

    I guess that depends on the person and look. I still think this is a badass stance, but that's just me.

    Ya no shit. And when Daley gets elected, it will the third act of The Machine.

    Who ever knew Indiana (or Wisconsin for that matter) would look like a better choice to live! I have seriously pondered moving the homestead to Indiana, but with my business right in the heart of the West Loop (Lake St and Western), it would take twice as long to get there from where I live now. I only have 20 years to retirement...*sigh*
