Default Lowering my car

I have a 2000 Bonne and I am thinking about dropping my car about an inch or so. The only thing that concerns me about doing that is I'm not sure if my car will level properly when it starts. Is changing my springs going to pose a problem or will everything be okay if I change the springs. Also, I am looking for some new exhaust tips. Can anyone help?

I would get in touch via email or PM to Speedyguy, he is a member here and runs Domestic Performance, one member here has had his 98 SLE lowered with DP products built by KYB I believe .

Also check www.pfyc.com for exhaust tips.

Its a start for ya

I've seen the lowered car MANY MANY times, and it'* sweet. Definetly a HUGE look.

I've thought about doing this, but wondered what size rims/tires I would be able to get away with. Let us know if you decide to proceed and what you end up getting from DP to get it done...
