Looks like you guys really wanted to know How I found out a way to safely drop our bonnies. So here it is, I live in Albuquerque, and there is a place here that can "make" custom springs for vehicles, I have seen their work up close and have spoke to a few different people that have used them to lower certian other vehicles, like a 1998 Cadillac El Dorado that was lowered 2.5 inches. This is what they do. First they will put your car up on their weight machine, to find out the exact weight at each tire, then they measure the current tension on your current springs and record that with your current height of your vehicle. then they have a program that runs the numbers and tells them which type of "Cargo" spring they will need to order, and where they will need to cut it. I know that you all are gasping at the idea of cutting springs, but here is the difference between cutting your springs that are on your car right now and the cargo springs, your springs that are on your car right now are progressive springs that are made to hold your vehicle at the factory height, with the factory weight. But, the cargo springs are also progressive springs, but they are made to be able to be cut or shaved to different settings. Cargo springs are mainly used on big rigs and other heavy duty equipment, but they are also used on Nascars and GT race vehicles, because they allow you such diversity and customability. Anyway, this company will electronically cut the ordered springs with the assistance of their computer program, and then they will install them on our vehicles. You will also have to purchase a camber adjustment package to adjust the front wheels, and two air bags for the rear, which you can get through them. The air bags are not like normal air bags or air rods, they are not adjustable once they have been installed, all they are their to do is to stop your vehicle from letting the rear tires hit the top of the fender wells, you do not need these on the front because the front has Mic Ferson (I don't think I spelled that right) struts, but that is why you need the camber adjustment in the front. And last but not least this setup will not make your ride extremely harsh because you are riding on springs that have been calculated to give the best ride possible for your vehicle, You can have the ride stiffened if you want or losened if needed ( You're a fool if you do this!!!! ). And of course price====500 even!!!!!
not bad if I do say so myself
I'm will have my car lowered 1.75 inches by the end of September.
