Not a fan of old school meats outside the body. But I do like the idea of 315/35/20's on a set of 20 x 10 in the back. With 275/40/20 on 20 x 9 up front. I have a set in mind. Now just need another 25,000 miles on my stock set.

Yeah, would look like one of the hotwheels cars or something, lol. In the late '70's my freind had a yellow nova that was completely tricked out, and it did look good with his 15" wide tires in back and raised up, though the tires were on to hook up the power he had more then the look.

I have to say it looks sweet. After that he talked me into installing my set I was a little tired but pushed on I installed the front set and now that I already did his install the front only took me 40 min to install. After comparing his car with all 4 corners dropped and only my front dropped I decided to go old school on mine I have to say I love the look of his car but I also like the look of mine and LOVE the feel inside the car and the viewing out the windshield is fantastic. I will see how it performs on the ¼ mile and I can always lower the back if need be.


Yes! :thumbsup: HDRS, I love this look. No one does this anymore. That stance reminds me of my 1st car, a '79 Mustang LX 5.0, it had the same nose down, almost crouching look.

how much did this mod cost you I've been looking into getting some lowering springs, and the stillen front splitter. The only thing that I worry about is the amount of clearance that I will have to drive around in. The roads here in Texas are a little F'ed up lol

our roads here in Michigan are not any better. I have not had any issue with being lowered and having the front splitter. Just becarful on steep inclines, take them at an angle.

Lowering springs I got on sale and with a rebate shipped to the house for under $180.00

Sway bars were on sale later and had a rebate and I got those shipped to the house for under $255.

Front splitter was on sale and I got that shipped to the house for under $155.

yea just take inclines/driveways at 45* angles and you will be fine. Also watch speed bumps and take them at an angle. We have some huge ones by our mall that I have to be careful over
