    Hey all,
    I've seen so many threads on here about droppin, slammin, baggin, lowering, c-notchin, leaf spring removin', leaf spring flippin' and front clip grafting that I'd like to see some rides from us guys that haven't gone the scrapin' pavement, in the weeds route. Not that I'm against it, I plan on putting mine down about 2-3 for a mild look (slight rake) some day. I know its what we do-the rides look good lowered, but not everyone does it. So, lets see em.
    My humble entry is a 1958 Ford F100. All stock and will be for sometime to come and driven with pride even though I aint laying frame.

    Can't be that much to lower. Flip rear end and some blocks. Less than 100 to lower it some. Would roll lowered on factory rims than stock height on aftermarket wheels. But I think everything should be lowered

  6. Yep, stock as a clock.

    Someday, I will get the main eyes reversed and maybe take out a leaf or two. Don't get me wrong, I like em low and loud but just thought it'd be cool to see stock rides too.

    My Acadian at stock height. I think it looks good with the thin white wall tires at stock height.
    I thought of lowering it a bit, and I still may do it in the future, but with so many huge speed bumps and some roads with pothole around here, I'm afraid it may hit bottom if I don't take them super slow.

    Agreed, those Birds look so much better without the skirts.

    Here's a shot of my stock height Comet:

    Stock springs all the way around, if anything I'd like it to sit just a little bit higher.

    Lowered cars have their cool factor but once everyone starts doing it, well you know whats happens next.
