: question about sportlines!!

hey as you guys know i just got in my sportlines in the mail.. now.. as you all know as well i have a sound system. i have two twelves. would that extra weight in the back cause the rear to look lower than the front? it might be a stupid question but i just wanted to ask. i dont think it will.

When I have my trunk loaded down with stuff to go back to school every weekend, my rear looks lower than the front. I don't know how much those things weigh, but 50 or so pounds of clothes, my laptop, etc. drop my car slightly.

I just measured mine by laying
a stick flat on top of the tire and
measured to the fender and it was
1 1/8" front and 1 1/4" rear.....
I've had about 200 pounds in my
trunk and I don't recall it ever sitting
lower than the front ??????????

the car sits level. the rear fender opening is smaller than the front because it doesnt need the clearance for turning. if you base the measurement from the ground to the fender, rather than the wheelgap to the fender, you will see its a very close meaurement. at least on my car it is
