Lowering / stance

    I was thinking of lowering another 1/4" all around. That would set the front seam weld at 7.5" and the lower control arms level to the ground. The rake is at 3/4". The front seam weld height is recommended by Mike Maier as optimal for steering geometry. My concern is the travel distance I have at my bump-stop, 1.5". Is the travel distance ok? Would lowering another 1/4" make a difference in performance on the track or should I leave it alone? Lowering3.jpg Lowering1.jpg Lowering2.jpg

    I think you looks good as it sits. Lower would give it a more slammed look which for your car wouldn't look correct...at least to me. but hey its your car.

    Thanks
    Thanks for the reply. Honest opinions is what I am looking for. Lowering is less about the look and more about having the correct suspension geometry for track days.

    Well I'd listen to Maier then.

    After more measuring and calculating, if I buy track tires (200TW 225/50/16) for my second set of black wheels the ride height falls right into Mike Maier's recommendations. No more spring cutting for me! Bilstein Sport shocks are next on the list.
