I just did a 2" drop up front and 3" rear on my '08 EXT. I used mcgaughy drop spindle kit. Looks awesome and a great product!

Why do you say it drives like shit?

Bearle, check your tire pressure also. It makes a big difference. I just came back from a 400 mile round trip. First part of it with the shorter suspension sensor rods and 36psi. second half with the long ones and 34 psi. My wife comment that the ride home felt a whole lot better.

I am liking the idea that the car rises and lowers when you start the engine and and turn it off with the longer rods.[COLOR="Silver"]

Does anyone know how to attach pics. I have downsized my pics to fit the forums criteria but still not allowing my to download. Weird! I'm wanting to attach pics of my EXT. I will tell you that I have 4" between the top ofte tire and fender on all tires.

On the rear the rods need to be bent to a 45 degree angle. This allows the rear to sit lower. When I installed my new rear spring and shock relocater plate my rear was still 2" higher than the front but as soon as I bent the rods it sits perfect all the way around. McGaughy sends a diagram of a bent rod and thats what you use to get the correct angle as the diagram is the exact size of the rods so you lay the rod on the paper until its the same.

I use photobucket to host the pics, then paste the IMG Code into your forum msg.

Because it does I think the guy installed in wrong or something it drives very very bumpy. I think I'm the only one because nobody else has the problem

Maybe that's the problem because my guy cut the rods to make them shorter and them welded them back together.
