    Re: My Lowered V

    Is the ride height easily adjustable? Do you plan on offering a package "DIY" kit or is this a custom in-shop setup only?

    Looks awesome! May be a "smidge" low for my tastes.

    Looks like you can now roll in Oakland without any problems. Put some 22" spinners on it too.

    As long as it doesn't have too much of a rubbing issue, I love it. Lower the better for me. Can't wait to see the HRE's. They will give it more of a custom look to set it off.

    one out of the five pictures looks good in my opinion....the last one. the lines on the cts are hard to notice. lowering it makes that rear look gigantic! the drop is too much for me...i just don't like the tires tucked into the fender wells...just doesn't look right. but, i'm sure it looks alot better in person.

    This set up has to be done in house. It is "adjustable" not really easy though. When it comes back from barrett we will play with it some more and see about a "kit". Front is not the problem, the rear is the trick. It was important for me to keep the ride smooth and new screw with the shock and spring geometry.

    Looks like a severe rake that doesn't seem present on the stock cars. Has it been corner balanced and still within stock specs on the corners?

    If not that rake will make the car mad oversteer happy. But if it's adjustable, I guess it could work.

    That is way too low. Makes it look cheaply done. Like one of them lowered Civics with five different colored body panels...

    But once you get the HREs (assuming they are 20s) on, it'll look a whole lot better. For stock wheels, though, it just can't sit that low. Needs to be raised a bit.

    Lookin forward to some more shots with the new shoes on. And maybe you can get some shots of the changes that were done to the suspension. What springs did you go with? Did you change the spring rate?

    you all are crazy... that looks great. one huge reason i wasnt too motivated on the new V was the fact MR is usually not adjustable... whatd you do, move the shock brackets too?

    I suppose 24s would look great, too...

    I agree; stock seems to be dialed in pretty nicely imo. Those pics make the car look like a big melted lump on top of too-small wheels.

    But I'd reckon your 20" rims will go a long way to improving that impression. Can't wait to see the pics of the finished work!
