Re: Need a drop?

NOOOOO, way too much...
This is a 2.5 drop (not my car) as you can see it is pretty low. You want some clearence there, plus if you drive on a bad/bumpy road you will thrash the bottom of the car.

Re: Need a drop?

1.5" and you'll be a happy camper...or slam it like my buddy did (although he'd agree it's no longer a DD)

just keep in mind after a 1.5" drop you're gonna start spending extra cash on every part that'll need to be replaced to handle that much.


see....not a great DD

Re: Need a drop?

yeah it wasn't a ride for comfort...as for the way it sat i didn't care for it as far as sitting still but when it was cruising it did look nice.
