Obviously, I plan on getting the car balanced. Have an appointment for Monday. I really don't care that much one way or the other if the car is lowered or not. I will admit it does look a little cooler with the wheelwell gap reduced. I came up with the 1" measurement from Jay at GC. He said any lower than that and (like you said) the rears will produce to much camber. After saying all of this, how much did you lower the yours?

Jay is overly optimistic on how much the car is lowered. Cutter Motors here in Santa Barbara installed my GC coil overs (front) and rears. Stuart, a former forumla atlantic and SCCA formula ford guy did the set up for me. Jay told him an inch to an inch and a quarter minimum. It has turned out to be much less. I also am having trouble with the rear bottoming out on bumps (set at half stiff) and think mayby I have the wrong spring rate in the rear.

Let me know your experience on this.
