  1. i do not want the wheel well to show as much with my 17" tires,so I am looking for recommendations on your guys opinions on:

    what is the "standard" lowering level? how far should I go?

    what springs or shocks etc should i get and from where?


    thanks!
     
  2. do a search and you will find all the information that you would want!
     
  3. I have a 95 with 17" rims and it's dropped 2" all around. It looks alot better, not as much wheel well, and 1.5"-2" is pretty much the norm.
     
  4. and then no new threads will ever be posted cause all the outdated information will still be floating around :banana:
     
  5. common not every one knows what their doing, like you guys do
     
  6. i have 1.5" lower and there is still some wheel well space (17x9 R rims) i wouldnt go lower than 2" tho
     
  7. how much would it normally cost to drop my car 2"?
     
  8. including hardware, about $350 to $450. I recommend 1" to 1 1/2" lower if you are just swaping springs. If you want 2" or more, you need to replace more than just springs....
     
  9. yea i think 1 1/2.. you might wana grab shocks to..there gonna take a beating
