It'd be unsafe for street use were it not for the adjustable struts. It handles slightly better than stock when the struts are tightened down to the #9 setting, but its a bumpier ride. Worth it considering the weight savings and better weight transfer at the track. With the adjustable struts all I have to do is turn the wheel out and reach in behind it and twist the knob on the struts. Makes for switching between street and track mode very easy.

Umm, yea when I say unsafe for street use... well words won't describe the feeling. It feels like your on a boat in the river.

Uhhh, I have no front sway bar and drive to work 5 days a week.

Drives like stock with the exception of a little more body roll and when you hit the gas the front comes up a lot higher and twists a lot more, which is cooler IMO.

Mines all been swapped out for SVO goodies. I gots SVO axles in an 8.8, SVO front hubs so its 5 lugs all the way around. SVO sway bars front and back. SVO 4cyl struts. Boxed lower trailing arms and adjustable uppers (so you can set it up kinda like a 4 link). 2" lowering kit with drag springs. I have it set on 0 deg. caster/camber for less resistance at the track. Next thing to come is a set of Hotchkis CC plates and strut tower brace if it will clear the Demon. :rockon

Twist 2 Go said:
did you use a bump steer kit to lower it that far? If not, how does it drive?
It was already lowered when I got it so Im not sure what all was used when it was done. Knowing the guy that I bought it from, only the best parts were used and all of the work was done in a proffessional manner. So if it was necessary or even the prefered way it was most likely done. It handles like its on a rail. I was really impressed too because of the tire size combo. 255/50/15s on 15x10s out back and 205/60/15s on 15x6s up front. Im sure it would handle even better with a set of 17 inch cobras all around but Im happy with it.

800 lb springs? Good God!! Stock springs are in the 275-300 range. As for my 150's I think I might need the weight transfer, besides that, if you can turn left or right, you're not going fast enough...... :funnah :funnah :funnah
