Post Ride height question for the class...

I'm pretty close to equalized on my ride height, at (from the ground) 26 1/4" in the front, and 26" at the rear. This differs from my AGX/stock springs readings of 27 1/4" front, and 26.5 at the rear, in taking away that 3/4" height difference.

The car feels fantastic, and turns in exceptionally well, while still being very stable. There has to be a down side to this that I'm overlooking. There has to be something bad about something that feels this good, right?

Glad to hear you got everything dialed in Kevin.

I'll be joining you in coilover-land once my D2 COs from TRi get here sometime next week.

As far as the lowered height is concerned, there's really nothing detrimental about it with regards to damage to the car or increased wear that i can think of. If the suspension is aligned properly, your tires should wear right and everything should just work.

Curbs, deep potholes and other mischevous terrain might argue with your blatant disregard for their domain, but that's a trade-off i guess.

Most true performance variants of otherwise run-of-the-mill cars are lowered, the Porsche 993 Turbo sits a nice 1" below it's non-Turbo step-brother, and the Sport Sedan and Touring Wagon were just a tiny bit lower than their domesticated counterparts.

Just enjoy it, it's good to make the best of a great car.

I was more concerned about the almost level ride height, front to rear. But I took it out and tossed it around, and it just feels wonderful. I have a 1/4" height difference front to back. Feels really good, though.

Hey Kevin, Real glad to hear your quest for "Nirvana" was finally fruitful! Question:
Were the WhiteLine springs you were checking on from Teagues the "Select" model? I've located them for $170 a set with advertised 3/4-1 inch drop(they also come in "super-low"). Think the Wife may even let me get away with the AGX's and these springs with my Uncle's $$$$ ("Sam") Not a bad deal ($389+$170+shipping)?

They were indeed the Selects, in that stylin' Whiteline powder blue. Dale loves 'em, last I heard.
