Hmmm. I am assuming he is going to delve into the relms of bumpsteer and weight transfer.

You might find that the brakes aren't as sharp and that the acceleration isnt as sharp if you haven't had the rear lowered.

I had my front done and it was a while before I got the rear done and unquestionably both aspects improved dramatically as mentioned above when I had the rear lowered.

Good look!

By the way, the handling will be phenominal when you get the rear lowered!

Get some 195/45/15 tyres on there, highly recomended in my own experience. Toyo's all the way!

I've not given it a thrashing yet, waiting til the rear is dropped.

And the 195/45's will be going on my willy wheels next week :lol:

if you just drop the front the turn in will sharpen but may get probs with oversteer,will become more twitchy,

traction is olso improved on fwd cars by dropping the nose or raising the rear,

thats that weight transfer thing pikie :wink:

wouldn't listen to a Scotsman's advice on car tuning or lowering, they have only just moved on past horse and cart ;)

You've lowered the front and not the back, hardly takes a technical genius to figure that one out!

And don't forget wheel travel and bump absorption too :wink:

Looks :twisted:

I've just highered the back of my RT and gone for the slightly nose down approach and imo it defo handles better!
