Is it possible to lower the Viper without getting new springs? Someone mentioned something about adjusteable - or does this only apply to ACRs?

Thanks

I believe it applies to an acr, mine are not adjustable. You could cut the springs you have, but I've read different opinions on results. if you chck the classsifieds on viperorg. there were a set of precut springs from "vipermed" or something like that that a member was selling. Do a search, I started a thread
on it a while back and there were good discussions due to it.

You can get the northwind lowering caps. I think they take your car down about 5/8" without affecting your ride quality. I have eibachs on my car and absolutely HATE them. Im changing to Penske's or Motons ASAP.

Makaha...I have Eibachs, and just love them...but wouldn't go much lower...V10 MOJO has them too, seems to like them just fine...I can tell you that they are not the springs of choice for drag racing, but my car handles so much better than stock on the street...

You'll have to do a four wheel alignment after the install...

how much time do you lose on drag timed with eibachs. Any time slip or is it the ass dyno that feels it?

Your 60' will be effected, as the rear springs are much heavier than stock, which will inhibit weight transfer when launching...Drag radials solve this problem for the most part...

I plan on getting another set of rear shocks, and just swapping rear suspensions for the big drag events...swapping wheels/tires anyway, four more bolts and the suspensions off too...

rear eibachs are progressive are they not? Drag radials a must then when I take it to the strip. I have yet to do it...I've been somewhat of a prude with the car, but I'm beginning to realize that the damn thing IS a race car. I'm gonna have fun with it.

Both are easy...you have to remove the spring caps to change the springs...



And Anthony only drives his car on a very low profile trailer...so its really not a problem! :lolcry:
