How low can you go?

I'm thinking about getting my springs lowered to where my car drops 2 inches. I was just wondering if people have some pics of their cars with a drop on them. I got a 98 so between 94-98 would be great. Just wanna get a quick overview of what it'll look like. :nogrinner

I cut the hell out of my springs its slammed and looks good, bounces but i don't care it looks way better.

ignore the body work but heres a ok pic.







Sorry I dont have any of the car put together but u can kinda tell, my tires dont scrape and hardly ever scraps on bumps. its a little more then a 2 inch drop.

Looks pretty good. I really think when the car was factory made it was way to high. Only concern I would have after lowering it is; bumps, scraping my bumper lip, otherwise worth it. I'd appreciate more pics even if it's not my year to get a better view.

Yea either invest money on the tools which will pay off later or pay loads of money on a mechanic to install it. Such a dilemma at times.

Anyone who has springs installed can you share your experience/story as far as installing went?

It seems easy like you said just.. easy could mean easy to certain people.. lol
