    I just finished lowering my Merc. I used Fatman dropped spindles up front and Posies springs with 2" blocks in the rear. It is roughly dropped 3" up front and 5" in the rear.

    While I had it apart, I sandblasted and painted all the suspension components in the front and replaced all the bushings/pins and tie rods. All I have left to do are the brakes.

    Just the right amount of tail dragging. Good job.
