So I just got my set mounted up yesterday! And so far loving it. The struts were a perfect fitment! Ride is very nice! Much better than the stockers for sure. Also added some rota slipstreams and yk520's

here's a quick pic:

I did the 1/2" paranoid spacers and they're pretty tight on stock studs. Had to set the car down to get the threads to bite. I LOVE the way the 1/2" leveled it out, mine looked similar to yours pre-spacer. Go 3/8" for simplicity, or 1/2" if you'd like, it did work...
FYI

Oh... Also-someone on NASIOC.com had a set of 3/8 a few bucks off of new price.

An inch or two. One big difference vs. Swifts is the struts -- you really feel them having less suspension travel. It changes the feel of the car.

What he said! The car feels totally different. Also I'm running some pretty heavy rear camber to keep them from rubbing. But the ride is great and the handling is amazing. I'm waiting on a PF strut bar soon!
