    Default Lowering Springs

    Currently car has 28in tires on rear with the heater hose mod to factory springs.

    Would like to get the car a little more level with out having to jack up the front.

    Advice on what lowering springs to look into? Its a pure straight line car so do not need autoX related fanciness.

    Factory springs are dirt cheap. I would just spend a few hours and cut 1/2 coil at a time and see where it sits. Repeat until you like where it's at. A lowering spring might take it way too low. They aren't designed around guys running tall tires.

    I bought some BMR 1.25 lowering springs, and we shall see if the 28s cooperate.
