Enjoy the harsh ride and poor handling. Not to mention worse fuel mileage. You sure you want to go that extreme?

Well I think 18 inch wheels would look excellent on it. 20 inch wheels are way to big for this car.

perhaps you could install an airbag system as mark <GAMEOVER> did. that would set you back some $$$, but its worth it IMO. in fact, i think he might be selling his setup, but am not totally sure. shoot him a PM, he still comes around.

Mark'* airbag system may be what was destroying his trans. It upsets the driveline geometry.

its call 3 wheel motions but ya that doesnt help ethier

recent i fabbed up some new spacers and but different size thrust bearings for the struts so far so good and the only thing in my expericene not trans issues with the driveline but Cv joints going out faster thats all i talk about every car ive seen and dealt with that has any kind of adjustable air suspension

mainly my trans fail due to doing 3 wheel moitions and some sick burnouts i shatter my diff case both times
