Lowering the Olds

Well I am in the process of purchasing my Tires and Wheels.  After thought I will be lowering the Cutlass about 1 1/2 inches for that stance I am looking for.  Right now the car is about 26 1/2 inches from the ground to the top of the fender, so that will obvious be somewhere around the 25″ range when I am finished with it.

Here are some pictures (below) with a SIMILAR idea for what I am going to be doing.  Some of these cars are more extreme than I am going for and some are milder than what I see in my head.   Most of pro touring looks have 18″ to 20″ rims while having 9″-10″ width which I feel is a little extreme for me.  I will be riding on 17X8’s with 225/50/17 in the front and 255/45/17 in the rear.  For a somewhat “stock” look while having the black rims will also be a modern look to whats already on there.  The stock rim is 90% black anyways so going with the Torq Thrust Black’s will be a good look.

The idea of lowering the car will not hinder performace but only enhance performance, A tighter yet not so bouncy feeling while taking dips and mounds.  A lower tighter feel will help in cornering, stopping and take off response as well.

This latter part of next week i’ll be working on everything….so look for updates soon.  finally some steps in the right direction!
