I really wanted to share this article specifically because it really describes the process of working on a car’s stance, and that is trial and error and artistic creativity. This is one of the most popular articles on the site and at a glance, you would assume that the owner, Jonothan Deleeuw knew exactly what he wanted and exactly how he wanted to do it. But that is not at all the case. The wheels were initially 17 inches in diameter. Once fitted to the car, there was too much wheel space and the car could only be so much lower. So he up-sized the wheels to 18 inches in diameter.

Stance doesn’t only include a flashy set of wheels, though. You have to achieve the perfect ride height to eliminate the space between the wheel and wheel well, and the space between the body of the car and the ground. Making it all seem like one continuous body. This requires a replacement of the original suspension set up. Not only did he need new parts, but they needed to be custom to work for such an older vehicle. An entirely unique suspension set up was created from parts of suspension set ups of various other vehicles. It’s  an expensisve hobby, but if you’re really willing to put your heart into it, you can really create a masterpiece.
