Anyone lowered with 28" tire?

Planning on lowering 1.5-2" in the rear, wondering if anyone has done this before with a 28" slick

Thanks for the info. Yea I'd just hate to buy everything to lower then have to go back to stock ride height when I get my slicks.

If anyone else could verify that'd be appreciated!

Depends how low. Depends on what wheel. Depends on what back spacing.

I'm lowered 1.5 and with a 275 rear slick under a hard launch it rubs a tiny bit on the right side.
