Re: How low should I go?

just pickup some adjustable coilovers.. that way you can adjust it to how you like it when ever you want

Re: How low should I go?

This same answer is in my reply to your pm: I'm runnin skunk2 race springs which are 2.25" front and 2.00" rear, but then i put the KYB AGX's on and it lowered it bout another quarter inch. So i'm guessin about 2.5" front and 2.25" rear. If you go with more than a 2" drop you will need a camber kit.

I might also add, if you plan to do a lip kit you must be extremely careful when driving. Even now with no lips i sometimes drag my front bumper. And my exhaust is a scratched and dented up mess between from the front tires to the rear tires. My can also has some scratches in it, but i try to take care to not scratch it up more than the rest of my exhaust. Just remember when entering and exiting parking areas, speed bumps, or pulling into and out of driveways angles are key to not dragging anything.

Re: How low should I go?

I've got a 3 inch drop on 40 profile tires on the stock blades and that still isnt low enough. time for some EG front shocks!
