Toby,

Lowering makes a huge difference. Don't forget about alignments, etc. following the dropping of the behemoth. Awesome photoshop work. I'm going to have to get that. Toby, can you lower mine (not trying to dork out, but I've got my eibachs and not enough time for at least aweek and I'm dying to see what it looks like). Her's a pic of it now.

Use the lasso tool...copy..paste. Its kinda hard to explain but easy to do...it just takes some practice.

I lowered mine by cutting the stock springs 1 coil (I bought a spare set of stock springs to cut).

It lowered the car about 3/4's of an inch and really helped the look of the car. The ride is a little harder, but not bad.

I thought about Eibachs, but was told they really kill the weight transfer for drag racing. Since I'm really into drag racing more than the road course, I went the cut spring route since it is supposed to hurt the weight transfer less. /images/graemlins/gr_driving3.gif

I'll post some pics soon (haven't taken any since it was lowered).

Yeah the Eibachs will definitely suck for drag racing. There's very little front <-> rear weight transfer now, which is great for road racing. I tried a 100 mph full throttle lift on a cresting sweeper and there was virtually no induced understeer. I used to do that when it was stock just for grins and it would kick the rear end out a couple feet.

Makaha, the Eibachs will lower the front 1/2" and the rear 3/4". Not very dramatic as far as looks goes.

I'm going to send you a picture of my boat trailer with my x-20 viper of the water boat on it. Could you lower the trailer for me so I can see what it would be like going down the road lowered? LOL. I think I started something here. Time for you to start having some "software problems" so you don't have to lower everyone's car. Superbar, it looks nice...yes, very nice indeed.

I was thinking of more like 3/4" clearance or 9/13" of clearance. suparbar, ask if he can lower both our cars to those specs /images/graemlins/smile.gif

OK, here is my car with some aftermarket 20" looking stock wheels, and of course the car is already lowered a couple inches:
