Very Clean. is there a happy medium with the drop? you said when u dropped it that it would bind the cv shafts, will it be ok if only drop it half way? i love our years of modded Bonnevilles. Yours is nicer than my last 1993 Modded Bonnie.
Now working on a low milage clean 1992. we will see where this goes. hahaha. And maybe stepping up to a 2002 or newer Bonnie

Yep. I've found the happy medium as far as my setup goes. My ride is comfortable, barely rubs, and still performs well at this height. A TON of trial and error when into this though.







Crossed the Chesapeake Tunnel Bay Bridge today.

Thanks.

I never really added it up.. Lots of custom work though, made the coilovers up front, modded all of the engine mounts to raise the drivetrain up so the axles weren't binding at this height, 00+ knuckles, adjustable front shocks, all new tie rod ends and ball joints, spring rubbers, the works.

I've basically dropped a 95 on 2 different sets of struts/shocks, 3 different sets of custom springs in the back, 2 sets custom springs up front, 2 front W-body spring sets (Right-Click Save As for how to make front W-body drop springs work), and finally the coilovers with 400# springs. Essentially lots of R&D since nobody messes with this stuff on Bonnie'*. More interesting that way though..

Philly has terrible roads. I just have to be cautious.

Whenever I go on road trips my car always feels soooo much nicer than when I drive it in the city every day. Salt Belt FTL.

My subframe has a dent in it that I think has been there since I got it. But since my engine and trans are up higher they're pretty safe. The rest of the underside is pretty rust free. I por-15ed from the muffler back and I plan to do the whole underside.

The lights are OEM E39 headlights but there was a ton of work involved.. This is my second time doing this and I tried to make it as OEM as possible. I can dissassemble/reassemble like stock with no worries.Click here for the progress of the light install.

My third brake light is still there in the rear window? I didn't get rid of any lights out back. I did shave the rear key hole and antenna though.

No worry on the questions, ask away.
