If I didn't know any better I would say the person that had the car before may have put springs or wateva to make it sit higher to compensate for the wheels size
A 2" drop is gonna look low as hell with 19s. I'm dropped 2.5 in front and my 17" wheels just about fill the wheel wells. Bullitt1075 is on 18s with a 1.5" drop.

I honestly said I wouldn't drop my car because it never bugged me. But since seeing reading a lot more of these threads with pics all I see now is that big gap on my car hahah

Sounds like a good plan. I think you'll be happy with how it looks

You can also leave the isolators out and wrap the ends of you springs with electrical tape to get a little more of a drop. And JDF is correct, I'm on 18's.

ok Kool so far I'm looking into 17 mach 1 wheels so I kno I'm going to need a serious drop but I will try the tape, is that a better alternative than cutting the springs

I have 17 03 cobras for winter that are on now and 18 10th anniversary for summer. Isolaters raise cc don't. Honestly this set up for me rides 100 times better than stock. Oh also I have 275s all the way around
