If you wanna make your car just like one from the Flintstones after ripping off the bottom of your car from speed bumps and other road hazards then yeah, go for it!

Not sure the drop I forgot to measure..but at the bottom of the coil is how much there is left to drop..and sorry it's pretty gross I haven't done anything with it since I put the suspension in. But I think the coil overs were rated to go to 2.5" or 2.8"? I think his a bit lower..hard to really tell In my pics but that's all I have since I haven't cleaned the thing.
