I lowered mine just a tad.I can stick one finger between the tire and fender,but only at an angle,i can't straighten my finger across the top of the tire if that makes any senseI had to trim my spoiler in half(it's still only 1/2 inch off the ground)and removed the two side pieces,keep in mind i'm laying on the ground for this pic,thats why there is a hint of a gap between the tire and fender.You can't even stick your arm under the side rocker panels.Wouldn't have it any other way.I let Hawaiian Punch drive it,he said"damn,that thing handles like a go-cart".Still rides good too,i have the FE-3 spring.

I saw a yellow with black flames in a mag,and it was stunning.I removed the front bolts and tossed them,i also took the rubber pads (inboard on the spring)trimmed a 1/2 off of there also.I can clear on very small speed bumps,like 2" high.Not to sound negitive,my car is way lower than your picture.If you slide your foot under the car below were the door handle is,you would stop before you got to your ankle.Take-er down some more.You'll need bump-steer kit though.:laughing:
If you look at the bottom of my rocker panel,it's even with the bottom of my rims.perfect:excited:

I dropped her an inch. About as low as I could go and still be drivable around San Jose.

Lowered mine as well....2/3 off the front bushing and 2 threads showing on the rear bolts.....the back could be lower, but it looks greta already and I appreciate whatever ground clearance I can get while still looking the part.:thumbsup:
