Anyone have pictures of there 7th Gen Max on 20's W Springs?

I just got some 20" KMC wheels on my Max (2009 SV) and some Nitto 245/35/20 tires.

So far I have seen 3 sets of lowering springs available.

Eibach - roughly 1.4" Drop
H&R - Roughly 1.4" Drop
RTR (Stillen Site) - 1.2-1.4" Drop

I don't want my Max to be slammed, just want to reduce the wheel gap a little bit.

Anyone have any pictures of there max on 20's with springs so I can see what I should expect the look to be?

If so, please let me know what type of springs you have installed.

Thank you in advance

Thank you

I just measured my wheel gap and it looks like I have about a 2" gap front and back. So in theory I should end up with a .6" wheel gap after installing 1.4" drop springs. But from the pictures you guys posted it looks like you have about an inch of wheel gap.

So my next question is do the Eibachs really drop the car 1.4"?

I'm OK with them not dropping it as much as advertised because I don't want it slammed. Any feedback would be greatly apreciated.

Got the front done

Was only able to finish the front due to weather. But it looks good so far. Finishing up the back today.

Final Product

OK guys. Finally got the springs and Rotors on. Also got an Alignment. Attached a picture of the Alignment details so you can see the before and after once the springs are on. Once again thanks for all the help and pictures.

Rubbing

Hey guys,

any of you that got the eibachi drop and running 20s on ur car, anyone had 3 people sit on the back ? Does it rub? .. I'm between putting 19s or 20s. With 19s I know il have more tire meat, and with 20s I wont, which leave them vulnerable to being bent or cracked if hitting a bad pothole. Any thoughts and experiences much appreciated. Thank you. .

wow she looks nice man. Deff see the difference. I love how the 20s look but I dont wanna deal with the rubing. I mean I can always roll the fenders , but idk how much that will help . These maximas need to be dropped, they sit too high fir my liking.

Thanks!
If mine was a daily I would have stayed on stock 19ís and probably went coilovers for adjustability with a 35 instead of 45 tire

im on 15mm and 20mm spacers respectively now
car is in for some paint and body mods right now Iíll repost some updates pics when sheís finished

makes sense. No mine is a daily so il got with 19s but il get staggered, I like the look of the lip on this beefy 7th gen ..and the eibachi drop should be more than enough.
