How long does it take to do springs with impact?

2-3 hours to do the springs

1.4" front 1" back

I am looking forward to Koni Yellow Adjustables with lowering springs as an option. Hopefully, BMR will put a package deal together when the Yellows are available.

What length drop would you use to make your car low, decent ride and level?

Some confusion here, this thread is about 1.0 front, 1.4 back. Eliminating all rake.

Look at the bright side. Slap some mudders on there and you won't have clearance or traction problems.

Personally, I like the inbetween look of the 1.25in Pfadt springs.

Bump.... after all this time nobody has done 1.0 front drop, and 1.4 rear drop?

Too much rake here!

I don't have exactly what you're looking for since mine's a v6, but it's close. The split drop offered for the v6 comes with a 1.2" rear. I'll try to get some better pictures up tomorrow on my summer wheels.

Actually those pics are very helpful, doesn't matter if V8 or V6.

So 1.0 front and 1.2 rear?

Your car looks great!

Thanks, and yeah, BMR mentioned something about the rear v6 struts being different and that's why they offer the 1.2" for the the v6. I was able to get the 1" v8 springs for the front though to help remove the "raked" look.

I'll have some pictures up tomorrow on the factory SS/RS wheels that should look a lot better.

So i started this thread some time ago and I ended up just doing the 1" all the way around for the time being. I did get a full 1" with the bmr springs and now that i did I do love the look just going that route. The rake is not as noticible dropping 1" f & r as I thought it would be. As for now this is the way it will stay.

BMR Springs? 1.4"/1"

PSJ, not BMR, but Pfadt...the color may help you decide. Note the splitter. With these I was barely and I mean BARELY by less than 1/4" clearance able to pull onto the Hunter alignment rack this morning. Sorry, kinda dark.

Thanks guys!!!

Colt, those tires stock size on those black 20's?

Claw, looks awesome.

RJames, also too.

Looks like 1.0 front and back can't go wrong but I'd still like a little lower in back.
