In Reply to: Just got my Suspension -Quick Question PLS posted by ROBERT M on March 06, 2001 at 13:05:41:

Get your corner weights done by a race shop! If you just lower your car an inch and don't get the corner weights done you may not like the results (worse handling).

Remember the "goal" with adjustable spring perches is not to lower the car but to balance the weight. Lowering is a "side" benefit, not the goal.

Also lowering that much IS going to change the geometry of the suspension. You can "get away" with it on the front but you WILL have too much camber in the rear. You better look into adjustable rear bushings as well (plus a good 4-way alignment).
