Wink Help me decide

I am at a crossroads-- I need help deciding on what to do next to my car mod wise. I want to do to both but I dont know which one would be better -- I want to add a rack from BAT inc and also drop it. Keep in mind that the roads here suck ... the roads are like rivers when it rains (LOL)

thanks for the help

heres my car as it stands

I voted to drop it. I can guarantee you the roads are worse here than they are in Texas, and I'm still going to drop mine, lol. Just gotta be mindful to where you drive.

I say ... a Rack ... Texas does have pretty bad roads ... I'm only dropped .5 (SVT with eibach pro kit) and I rub alot ... sucks...

Plus it's nice to put some things on top when you need to haul a few things that don't fit in the hatch.

If the roof rack is just for looks then do the suspension. But if the roof rack will serve you then do that.

I have one of those hang off the back bike racks and I am pleased with it, don't use it much though. It's a thule brand IIRC, I'll double check later.

Unless you're going to need the rack drop it.
