I think that drop is perfect! Its very similar to my dad's '06 (I'm not sure what springs he used) but it sits and rides beautifully.
I'm really glad to see someone else not interested in dropping their car to the ground. hahaha

here's a pic of my dad's:

Yeah, I have NO interest in going any lower.
This got rid of the "extra" space in the fender gap.
That's all I wanted to do.
I did NOT want to have to drive around pebbles in the road cuz I might scrape.

As far as hooking up, I feel that it hooks better now than ever.

I have BMR relocation brackets for the rear lower control arms, and I have the BMR tubular rear lower control arms, installed in the middle hole of the relo brackets.

Thanks Karyn!

Oh, I'm pretty sure a black Vortech kit or custom-black Paxton kit will eventually find its way under the hood ... lol

Thank you!

I'm just about done with the suspension.

Was on American Muscle's site earlier looking at tuners ... $357 shipped after the forum discount was kind of a tempting deal ... lol

With the relocation brackets, you're good to go!

Thanks man ... yeah, the stock stance definitely has them sitting way high in the rear ... something that's been going on since the 94 body style came out ...
