its should work for my basic need of drive-ability but also having the option of dropping it down when parked
car in question:

the hardware:










Rear bags are with mr dorbritz, the master installer lol
Should have it installed this weekend with the help of a bunch of awesome friends
Will notch the frame and take out the swaybar
Wish me luck

Re: f_399 air install (Still Fantana)

PS: Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the sway go under the axle? Unless if you're looking for more side/side independent movement, it would be virtually useless to take out for clearance purposes.

my swaybar endlinks started causing issues for me. one bent somehow and it started rubbing the tire/wheel. i just took out the endlinks and havent had a problem since. the front swaybar doesnt get in the way of snything so i left it in. my rear sway seemed to have no effect whether it was in or out. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

i am very curious to see how low i can get

its on h&r ultra low

as long as you don't bottom out the internal valving, you'll be fine. you'll have other things that prevent you from getting lower if the valving isn't bottomed out

PS: Are you planning on keeping the fat 5's?

depending on how the fronts are all set up, you might be limiting yourself with the tire size. 215/40 right?

definitely need 215/35 up front if you want to lay it out
