I wish it didnt look like an SUV with that rear clearance. what size are those rims? I say drop that mutha so you dont get protested against for harmfull emissions (people will mistake your ride height for an SUV)

I'm upstate in Rochester---the winters suck up here & I'm reluctant to drop it that much. Wheel size is stock 16"--Enkei DM5's on there--a good rim, only thing I dont care for are the plastic center hubs on them--they seem kinda cheap & feel like it wouldn't take much to break...

Put the SVT drop on it. It only lowers it half an inch, that will help alot. Get it dropped, it will pretty good.

i'd suggest a Pro-Kit drop from eibach and get the plus with the ani-sway bar kit...it will definitely make ur car sporty as hell but only drop it 1.5inches

i drive my car in the winter (ofcourse stockers go on in the winter) and i drive my car hard...so take my word for it

A good 1.5 inch drop would do. If you don't want to go too low, do the SVT Suspension swap.

I was stationed in Watertown NY, a lot farther north than you. I had a lowered Saturn for a few months then realized it was nothing but a sled so I bought a 4x4 Nissan truck.

Hey Girv,

Car looks sweet, I have the same one except an 03.. Do the amber front markers bother you with the clear sides? The reason I ask is because I've been holding back from buying clear sides for that reason, not sure if the amber/clear combo will get under my skin or not...

Yeah--I'm thinkin abt maybe droppin her abt 1.5"--that's abt as low as I'll go. It just amazes me at how expensive the after market stuff is: springs & dampeners.

As far as the clear sides & amber fronts go--I dont really have too much of a prob with the combo. I know on ebay they sell the grille w/the clear turns & they look pretty sharp, but again--it costs abt $175.
