    OK- how much lowered ? A LOT ....No airbags - its always this low. We welded in the Camaro subframe and Olds wagon 4 link rear very high . it has full ride travel at this height - rides great ! All components are above the frame, so when it runs out of ground clearance it bottoms out the frame - wakes you up, but no damage.... Probably doesn't meet scrub line, tho .....:eek:

    This thread is starting to take shape! What a great group of cars so far. They all look bad ass. Great to learn what it took to get them low.

    Explain this comment, would you please slammed...???

    Might I suggest "killer motors" have been around a lot longer than OD has...and I used to drive my "killer motor' to the dragstrip and back home (35-40 miles one way) many times during the summer and it didn't have an overdrive...then downtown to 16th street every Friday and Saturday nite summer and winter...oh, it also had a 2:20 low 4-speed and a 5:13 rear end...!!!
