you prolly cant go wrong with 2/3 with drop spindles...i had bags and 26's rims before but the ride was not all that good! 24's with the right size of tires with 2/3 shouldn't give you any problems. the ride quality comes pretty close to stock..btw, where you at in cali? i see cali plate..lol

Lowering kits = mcgaughty's, ground force or eibachs would be your best choices..

Spin that is a great looking Esco you got there.. I wish I had found that one. Congrats I just picked up an 06 with 63,000 miles bout 2-3 weeks ago. I found mine out near Sac too, haha.. Oakley to be exact. It was either this one or a black 05 with 43,000 miles (no roof though) from St. Claire Cadillac Dealership. Great find

Hello All

Here are some pics of the changes...these are driveway pics, so when I take better ones, I will re-post

I wanted something a little more aggessive, so I went with KMC Black Center Strike wheels, but I had to consider a couple of things before the changes;

- I tow a boat, so wheel size needed to be considered.
- Vehicle is used for business, so I needed to maintain a professional appearance

Changes
2/3 McGaughys Lowering Kit
22" KMC Strike Wheels
Toyo Proxes 2
- Yes the mods do change the ride from stock.

Included in the post is one picture before lowering, so anyone who is contemplating the "should I or should I not lower it" can see the difference.

Thanks!
