Here are some pictures of the car lowered. It is leaving in a few hours on the way to Barrett Jackson via HRE to get the 20" wheels on and some photography done Saturday morning. Car is getting ready to go on the dyno before they head out.
The drop looks sick but it is a little low. The ideal drop should be where the top of the tire runs parallel to the curveature of the fender curve. Your tire actually goes under the fender. What did you use to drop ? just cut the springs ? how does it affect the ride ?
From a tech standpoint, I'm a noob who knows squat about suspension - but I'm interested in what teh results are on the much touted MR. As a matter of fact, I was thinking the car couldn't even be "lowered" with the MR (other than to throw it out the window and replace it with springs). Is that not the case?
The springs were not cut and the MR is still in place. A little welding and a little machining took place. It rides great and can be lowered to whatever height you wish. For the show we wanted a very aggressive look. Once the wheels are on we can raise it if need be, but it should be about right.
