The Steeda's are 1.25" drop, but my front bumper already sits 2 inches above the ground... so now my bumper will be 1 inch from the ground. I think that's low enough lol.

yea the say 1.25 but expect 1.1 - 1.25 but you really cant go any lower with the front end and not worry about scraping really bad if you dont already.

Maybe you could use somekind of a hand grinder on the lowest parts of your front bumper to grind away about 1/2 inch or so of it, lol j/k.

Well I might swap it for a Roush Stage 3 in a few months, but even still... Steeda get's awesome ratings on their springs, so I'll probably stick with them either way.

They're on and the full front/rear alignment has been completed. I'm going to go for a test drive later tonight. Rush hour traffic prevented me from really testing out the new springs. Wheel gap is much improved... 3 fingers now instead of 2 hands lol. Drop on the front looks similar to what it did before... which is good for the scrapage. Oh... and I got abused by the supercharged & nitrous injected Z06 autoshop teacher who was there calling my car the Ricestang the whole time my friend and I were installing them. Oh well... I heard Corvette drivers have small d***s anyways... so sucks to be him :p

shahrum and zimstang, to benefit from the drop handling wise, you will need shorter endlinks. they give the sway bar better leverage and aren't expensive. you can get them from ebay or from vendors. get "for lowered cars" obviously. i have some max. motorsport ones for sale as well.



also if your car is older some new isolators, and yes, USE THEM or you'll be sorry.
