you can do it, talk to 95NAsta, I am pretty sure he did it at one point.

Ride quality will be the worst you have probably ever felt but it is possible.

I got my springs from a now defunct site. Paulnold, and 95naSTA are the ones to talk to as far as getting correct specs for springs.

I just don't get it. These are fairly aggressive cars. Im not dropping 1k plus on wheels if I have a 3" fender gap. Yet they make drops for a Ford Taurus. Something smells, and no I didn't fart....much.

That wasn't meant towards anyone in particluar, but this topic came up before and it got out of hand. I just didn't want that discussion to progress
