Lowering

Ok I have issues. Why in the hell does everyone feel the need to lower these? You take a nice light good handling car that is well sprung with decent size rubber and make damn sure you smack the belly off every pebble on the road. I don't live on laguna seca and neither do you.

Re: Lowering

Oldludedude...
You friggin' crumudgen, don't you know it's cool?

Nah, seriously, there are some merits to a little lower if..... (Huge word there) it's done correctly.
Say for example the spring rate and height change help it slip through the air a wee bit better and handle curves better if done correctly.

Like you, I prefer my car as is. It handles good, but in America we like the car to handle 'a little more perfect'.

Trouble is (and I'm speculating what has you tweaked) is most people just throw money at their cars with no idea what the results will be. I'd say 9 outta 10 lowered cars I see on the road are ruined handling wise. But they look cool with those steel balls hanging from the tow bar and flicted looking speacial olympics pigeon toed wheels. It's here to stay ludedude....so are gigantic wagon wheels on 68 Chevelles and Vettes.

I know a couple of folks who have larger wheels, lower profile and stiffer ride in their cars. But lots of homework took place before turning wrenches. The results are stunning. My favorite part is the cars appear generally stock.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Lowering

Trading your stock SH crap for super sweet H&R springs and struts to anyone local who want to swap them.


When a ground down mud flap is 1-1.5" off the ground I get sad. Stock on these 5th gens are low enough. They handle well and if anything a little tight for many roads.

Next step is to quiet this greddy exhaust and find a stock or jdm intake.
