Default Just dropping the front by an inch?

I was wondering what kind of performance additions we would get if you put same size springs in the rear but harder, and then inch or so lowered springs in the front.

I put a lot of heavy stuff in the back so I don't really want to drop the back an inch too. It gets pretty tight in the back when I have my bass gear back there.

Would the car handle okay? I think it would give it a really aggressive stance.

Very aggressive. Adjust your ELC sensor arm to get an idea. Mine was like that on Sunday. I should have taken a pic for you.

You'll get better traction, and overall grip

My Rear end used to be very jacked up, but now I have a sub box in there, helps keep the rear in check.





Damn these are old... Red tails look so weird

Bass, both you and Driverjohn want that ELC procedure. I'll put something together for you ASAP.
