Not sure I followed this. How will lowering the front decrease understeer? Is it related to the geometry of the suspension? One would assume if he lowers the front he's going to increase the rate relative to the rear, which you go on to state will increase understeer.


ROD1 whose springs did you use to drop the rear?

Rod1 looks good I have a 2 SS and I would like just a level look also and if lowering just the rear almost balances the car I'm all for that but BMR makes a rear control arm that lowers the rear I just wonder if that will have same effect has changing the springs BMR guy any help here. Plus you all make really cool stuff thats affordable to the regular guy.
