Man,i gotta get some 19s or 20 inch wheels with some 25 or 30 series tires to get that stance.Of coarse i would not raise the car at all..
Anyone have Donald Trumps number,i need to clear out some bills.
Perfect look ALLKAR,in my opinion anyway.

Looks like you would bottom out hitting an ant in that car! Amazing. Speed bumps in a parking lot. Forget about it!

I have 2 1/2 inches clearance under mine.Thats about the average height speed bump here,i have scrapped a few,no biggy to me.I cracked a rocker panel once,the car was a little lower then.Yep lower...
You can get the frame savers,i still don't have them.

Here's a better picture of my car now that it's lower. Still running 17" front and 18 rear. The one thing that helped lower mine was adding a 85lb Supercharger to it. I love the way the car rides.
