Looks okay. Headlight, taillights, and a drop.

Glad you saved up and did the 03 bumper conversion, it looks good.

You should get coils instead of springs. Since you live in NY you can lower it in the spring and summer, raise it up in the fall

But you must get struts designed to be on a lower car. Lowering springs on stock struts is a big no no. Most members go with the KYB AGX's

I found this for KYB brands
Bilstein - KYB - Rancho - Monroe - Edelbrock Automotive Truck Shocks and Struts - Shockwarehouse.com
The AGX's are the ones to get I wouldn't go for others
Also this was a quick search you may find cheaper somewhere..
I personally bought mine off another member here used lol
Otherwise I would recommend selling whatever springs you bought and getting some D2 coilovers or similiar

Make damn sure you have new KYB AGX struts/shocks with whatever springs you choose. You'll just end up blowing your old ones right out if you don't do it.

On a sidenote, which grille is that?

i used a big jack i had in my garage and lifted it up on the right side behind the passanger front wheel.. on a hard peice of metal. (i checked that part and its fine
then i took off the tire. i used a universal lug wrench. it was really hard so i had to step on one side till it loosend (didnt strip no lug)
then i loosend the bolt on the top mount in the middle. barely loosend because it was really hard.
then i went and loosend tried and loosend the big bolts i was talking about. they where solid as rocks. thats basically what i did. when i put down the jack it went down really quickly maybe something got damaged? idk and its dark now so i cant even check

It takes a lot to mess up the ball joints. There is a torque-break force for the ball joints you can look up in our manual to check if they're ok.

No but still he can check for his piece of mind. Stepping on the wrench would at worst strip/bend his lug studs

Check your end links and all your motor mounts. If stuff is still OEM the rubber is most likely shot. Check the dust boots on all the ball joints, if they're crack/ripped stuff can be getting in there causing it to sieze.

Also for piece of mind get the suspension torque numbers from the tearstone manual and check the torque of every bolt down there.
