Finally lowered the Terrain

Finally got to installing the lowering kit that @BandDirector sold me. The kit included the original lowering springs that were run a few years back, new equinox sport shocks / struts, new bump stops, and adjustable cam nuts for the rear. Kit went on without issue and the adjustable cam nuts were needed for the rear and once those were put on the rear aligned within factory spec. Rides real nice over bumps and isnt too low that driving is an issue that ive found. Overall very pleased. Pictures and measurements were taken right after the vehicle came off the lift, it seems to have settled a little more since then visually. Alignment sheet and measurement sheet ( ground to bottom of fender ) included at the bottom. Plan to take better pictures next weekend in some abandoned industrial locations.

What do you hope to accomplish by altering the original suspension and lowering the vehicle?
