not as low as you think. i can get off base wit no problems and i have to go over a decent size speed bump to get out. So they arent as low as you think but they are low.

Well since we ####ed off for a lil bit it took us (my friend and I) 2 hours. This is an easy do it your self job. There are a couple of places that are a b!tch i will list them. 1 front cowling not that hard just annoying. 2 front sway bar put a jack stand underneath the A arm lower the jack a lil bit sway bar will move up and into position to put bolt back threw. 3 rear 2 shocks third bolt on other side of frame support for the seats (youll understand once you get to that point. 4 if you dont have air tools i pitty you. There are some ball joints in the front that need to be shocked with the air tool to come off. Other then that it isnt hard they look and feel great i recomend to all. Any other questions just ask.


The drop is 2.4 front, 2.0 back

That looks pretty good. I can't figure out why on some cars the drop looks too low and others it looks fine. I guess it's just the angles of the pictures I've seen.

I think someone stole your antenna... I don't see one on there, or it's the shortest stubby ever made.

No I took the anntena off I didnt like theRC car look. I also dont listen to the radio where i am cause there are no good radio stations aroundso I only listen to CDs. I do have an idea to shave the entire anntenna off and run on one thats inside of the quater pannel that way there isnt anything there just all smooth body lines.

If you look in the review section i have a whole review of the paint i used. I used Duplicolor caliper paint kit. You have to paint it on by hand. I put about 2 coats on it and i they havent chiped or peeled. It still has that poweder coated look. On the drop like i said it has 2.4 front and 2.0 back and tey are rated at a more of a drop the the Hotchkis but i think the hotchkis ones settel alot, dont know for sure.

If you disconnect the sway bar links from both sides and have both sides of the front of the car off the ground you don't have to play games with the suspension, just connect and go.

What ball joints did you disconnect? I've never disconneted any ball joints on my tC, not even the tie rod ends needed to come off for suspension or sway bar replacement.

It's an easy DIY if you have access to a floor jack, jackstands, and air tools. If you don't, it's quite a bit harder.

What's funny is that your car is noticeably higher than mine (with TRDs).
Thats because the TRDs settle past the drop they say

Because you are depending on a spring to do a job better done by an adjustable collar.
