Went to Lowes, lowered the R32 the old fashioned way -- with 600lbs of bricks!

Re: Lowered for a day (PSU)

Yeah, car was just fine though. I have a weathertech trunk liner, and it's on the stock suspension (obviously), so no scraping or rubbing at all.
No different from putting two fat friends in the back seat

I've had all 4 seats filled with people 265+. It's not that much different, except for maybe the distribution of said weight.
The most I have had in the back was probably 400lbs of Dell and HP servers for work.

And nothing to protect the interior

Bazzle

I have a weathertech rubber trunk liner, but yeah, should have put a tarp down too. I'm out detailing the hatch area today, getting it all cleaned up again... good excuse to clean the interior anyways.

edit: cleaned up perfectly, no damage or markings from the bricks at all. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (TANiK)

I did the Lowe's lowerering on my Speed6, before i got the R32.
I had about 1100lbs in the trunk and backseat of the car. Rode the bump stops all the way home, but it rode and still picked up nicely!


Tucked in there nicely!
