My ford k springs drastically reduced wheel hop so I would assume you'd have the same effect

*****in. I caught wind that my lil bro was gettin me the drag-launch kit, which we already talked about. But I guess Brothers was out so he picked up the pro kit. I was kinda leery bc I'm not crazy about lowering but I think they'll be nice. Hopefully I'll have them on tomorrow. Ill post pics ASAP.

I think it matters how low you go in the rear. I'm lowered 1.7 front and 1.9 rear and have LCAs UCA and mount and reloc brackets and at launch I still get hop.

I think my springs are hurting me.

Crappy tires also play a part

Brand new 285 Goodyear eagle f1 supercars. While I wouldn't call them "high performance", I wouldn't call them crap...

C'mon man, I post here too... Even though I don't even have my S197 any more. I loved the Pro kit on mine. I think it looks awesome and drastically improved handing. I'll be honest though, I'd have done it just for the look. I think it looks way meaner.

Haha yea I know yea I'm more of an old school looks guy myself, not crazy about lowered but it does look mean. Which is weird because I'm 24.... But whatever lol. As long as it hooks good and 275/60-15s don't rub I'll be happy lol

Basically, any lowering reduces the angle between the end of the Axle and panhard par... Without shortening the panhard bar, the axle will be pushed out of alignment (side to side).

Small drop 1" may not be noticeable... But it is there. Larger drop will end up being substantial enough that you'll need the adjustment.

I just installed an upper control arm and mount. It helped with wheel hop and make the rear end feel more solid over bumps and also on hard launches

Sway bars make a big difference with body roll in tight cornering

Oh. I almost forgot, caster cambers! Get them unless you like buying tires every. 3 months or so. I like the Steeda ones.

Just traded them at brothers for valve covers. I hate to get **** like that but there was nothing else I was in to. Didn't really want to have to get a bunch of extra **** to run springs I didn't really want. I feel bad because my lil bro was wicked stoked to give em to me but its whatever
