Same as any other car, about $3000 If done right.

The lowest Bonneville ever made.

Any lower you would have to paint it Green and put some John Deere decals on it.

LOL! The air dam is half ground off from going over humps in the road. My windshield has a 2 inch L shaped crack in the tinted portion from bottoming out so hard my teeth rattled. The air struts have been taken off till I find time to stop the summer fun and rebuild them.

In all fairness, a person could cut the front springs down (with a grinder, Not a torch) and shorten the Rear Leveling rod for next to nothing. Camber will suffer a tad, but itz going to regardless of how you go about it.

I would go with cutting a "dead" coil of the front springs and shortining the leveling arms. 1 coil should be goo for 1/2" of drop. Cut them both in the exact spot or your car will ride crooked and look goofy

Eibach doesn't make a kit for the Bonneville because no one has brought them a test subject


Road Trip?
