Removing Isolator

When you remove the isolators off the springs to lower the car, how far of a drop is it? and does it change anything (sound/ride/ect.)

Re: Removing Isolator

like a tenth of an inch, its not really worth it~ DO NOT REMOVE THE REAR ISOLATORS they make noises, my black car made horrid noises with no rear isolators. For the front I would leave the top isolator and only remove the bottom if you have to remove some.

Re: Removing Isolator

Or wait till you move out so you can stop using the phrase "it can't be too noticible".

A 1/4 to 1/2 drop is not going to give you what you are looking for. Have Katie lean on the car a little...that will be a 1/4 to 1/2 drop....will not change anything really.

Re: Removing Isolator

1 inch is a let down let me tell you, unless its 1.5 inches you wont like it most likly, but you start to run into issues when you get much lower than 1.25

Re: Removing Isolator

didn't someone post earlier that when you drop a car, say 1 inch, you double it and thats the look it'll give off?

Re: Removing Isolator

I think he is asking if you drop a car an inch, it will look like you have dropped it two inches.

Re: Removing Isolator

Dude, just drop the car without telling your parents... they probably wont notice. My parents didnt even notice I dropped mine until I asked my dad if anything looked different lol.
