Lowering 2002 V6

I am lowering my 2002 V6 with H&R Super Sport springs from AM, I was wondering what kind of drop do sixers get? I know in the specs it says 1.75" front & 1.6" back, but sixers drop less right? I'm also installing new isolators which should make it drop a little less than expected. And with that drop whould LT's be a problem?

Yea it wont drop as much on the front like a gt. so i suggest u dont install any isolator on the front springs for a better drop.
This is mine with super sports and no isolators on the front.

Please install c&c plates after you install those h&r SS springs.

I'm going isos all around, I like low but i want LT's in the future and i don't want to be scraping on everything. I gotta say tho, it looks sick with no isos on front.

Thanks! I have the same setup as you. Or did haha. Couple weeks ago i cut 2 coils off my stock springs and put those in so it would lower a little more on the front only and i like the look. I might cut some off the hrs and put those back on.
