Lowering....

I'm thinking about lowering my back end on my gt. I think stock gt is lower in front which don't look as good. How hard is it to do?

20 min my a$$! Lmao for me my bolt for the rear lower control arm was jammed in the rear, it took like an hour and a half just to get the two bolts out, a torch and a long screwdriver helped me bang it out, then I had to run to Home Depot to buy new bolts lol, from my experience the front was a breeze, but the rear was a pain

Really? I have a jack under the boot so it doesn't have weight coming down and more trouble trying to take the bolt off. I have air tools so it's a breeze for me

I did that same, I have Air tools too but when we took the bolt out it was bent where the tread was, maybe that was my problem but that sucker wouldn't budge for nothing, wow just thinking that was a year ago lol

Lol yeah I do, I don't have the funds for coil overs just yett, I just spend like $700 on my current suspension last year, I don't think it will get me flush with the fender by doing that but it's worth a shot
