i have a few questions about long tubes on
should i do them at the same time as when i put lowering springs on?
should i do the egr delete and if i do what else do i have to do with that like block off the vacume lines or anything?
anything else that you can think of that would be a good idea before i go get it aligned after lowering it and long tubes?

hope your not going to drop it too far cuz you will bang the **** out of your tubes. one reason i wont lower mine is cuz i dont want to risk ****ing my longtubes and x-pipe up. but good luck if you do.

:wtf why you say that. i never hit my lt's on anything. i have rubbed my mid pipe, but the lt's arent usually the issue. my car is on the ground as well. you should see some of the places i have had this car.

do the springs and exhaust whenever you want. if you want to do an egr delete, do it at this time. not too big of a deal to leave it on.

EGR delete isn't going to get you anything. Not much point in doing it.

exactly i had the slp catted x pipe on my gt lowered with h&r's and the cats would rub occasionally but it never messed the x pipe up. whether it be scraping doing 110 or climbing over a speed bump it always held up.

i was just saying in reference to where he lives. i know where i live even not lowered my x-pipe takes some punishment to all the dips/driveways/speed bumps etc and it gets kinda hectic to be always watching how you drive so you dont damage anything. trust me i want to lower mine to get that aggressive stance and better handling, but i dont want to have to worry about every little thing in the process. i know people that have done it and had a few problems with it, not being really major....but still scraping and rubbing everywhere. its all in the roads where you live which is what i was trying to say ;)

if some of the roads were any worse that i go down, i will have to get a spotter to get me where i have to go. i deal with speed bumps/humps, dirt roads, rough roads, contruction areas, etc and never once come close to messing with my headers. the prochamber hangs down low and the box does get scrapped if i not carefull when i am articulating the car.

If I drop the k member don't I have to get an alignment after?
no. unhook the strut from the spindles, and you are good to go. you dont have to mess with the tie rods to drop it either.
