Visual help needed!

I've already picked out the hood i like and going to lower her (just not sure how much would look good?). I would love some ideas from fellow enthusiasts! So any ideas? Thanks! And as for the lowering, I am willing to sacrifice some ride quality for straight line and launching.

I'd cut stock springs op it's free and great drop. Unless you're worried about ride quality. IMO cut stockers rude just fine.

Im not worried about the ride quality so much. This is just my toy, been driving it everyday lately though haha. Will cut springs be a good idea for 1/4?

I don't know honestly but if you want better launches on the track you need sticky tires and some control arms, springs I don't think will effect it all the much.

I've got some nitto 555s 285x18 on the rear and 235x17 up front and have a set of nitto 555rs 285x17 that im only going to run at the strip. So cutting my shocks would make me bouncy correct? (What ive heard). And if so wouldn't that be a bit sketchy down the strip?

It should make you bounce unless you're launching at 4 grand and your tires dead hook. But you'll soon some anyway unless you're easing out of it. Are you auto or manual?

Mine aren't bouncy. As long as your shocks and struts are in good condition it won't bounce.

Lol nope! That's why I'm interested in finding some good ones but also some that will give me the stance i want. What do yall think about 1.5" drop in the rear and a 2 inch up front? Or 2" all the way around?
