    Default How low can you relistically go?

    Just wondering how low people have gone with coilovers etc. I've seen them that advertise up to -100mm but would guess you may start to have issues with the CV joint locking up etc with a load in. How have coilover stood up to the miles?

    ( i am asking how much your car has dropped, no how much the manufactur says! Oh and pics are always good!! )

    all depends on how much work ya willing to do,i slammed my SRi corsa 60mm onto 18`s but did have to grind all the rear arches and front and also ripped out the front arch liners so the engine actually sat right next 2 the wheels but it was all good when done

    I hate being behind these lowered cars on speed ramp roads, you have to pass them when they have to slow to 10mph for each hump. Dont go silly so you cant drive the thing.

    mines lowerd -100 on back and was -100 on front but couldn't get of my flat drive as there was a 1" drop off the kerb so had to higher front up 20mm, still have trouble though unless i go full lock off it.


    i can get over all speed humps if i take it slow, it probably annoys other drivers behind but hey stlye over praticality anyday
