never. stock suspension is perfect. plus wheels stick out the body will need major body work for clearance if its lowered. i and rolled and the tires still teach the body on extreme cornering.

i'm happy the was it is stock.



buickboy yup bought it painted and after 4 months the the paint started to crack. but only on the bottom haft where it really should be black plastic which it is painted over. guessing the black trim wasn't treated for paint or wrong paint was used for a flexing bumper oh well

Well it was a thought. U went far enough for a brembos and rs wheels but stock suspension is ok? The Svt handles better with stiffer springs oh well lol

Man thats a clean SVT, nice work. [thumb]

I think it might look better if the wing was color matched, and the rear came down a bit.

When you get the rear bumper repainted, have them colormatch the hatch strip as well.

Looks good overall.
Do as you want, but coils don't bounce as much so rub isn't as much of an issue.
And they far outhandle the stock suspension............just from experience.

I agree with the OP, the stock SVT suspension handles beautifully and rides so comfortably at the same time...and I have many different set ups to compare it to.
