    Got My Strano's On

    So we put the Strano's and Koni's on the car and is it just me or does it still sit like a monster truck? It looks a lot taller than all the other cars with Stranos to me (Im looking at the tire to fender gap). Dont get me wrong they are awesome products, I just need some opinions, maybe it's just me

    The front definitely looks higher than the back, at least to me.

    I will admit the back tire is a little wore out compared to the front, but i dont think it would make that big of a difference

    I had the same opinion with mine. Not recommended but i ended up dropping my konis to the lower perch to drop the front down a bit

    Same here they don't slam the car and still at the higher perch...but I still scrape EVERYTHING. Handles amazingly tho.

    well i measured from the ground to the fender, passenger side and driver side front is at 27" and the passenger side and driver side rear is at 26.5". Im going to put 2 fresh tires on the back and see what that does, i ruined the back tires at the last turkey rod run... but the fronts are still practically new haha. the front is on the bottom perch also

    They do take a while to settle so expect it to go down a bit, but not much. My front on both sides is 26-1/4 rear driver is 26-1/4 passenger is 25-3/4

    That looks to be the norm for the recent pics I've seen with strano's. Over on ls1tech there was a big thread bout one guy not even getting a drop with strano's. He ended up going with BMR's. He took pics comparing the front stranos and front BMR's and the BMR's which showed the BMR's indeed being lower. Your car actually looks like it got a decent drop with strano's.

    I had the same thing with Stranos. Strano springs always sit like this, which is an issue that has been beaten to death on other threads. Finally got my car's stance the way I want it, though. I wound up installing BMR 1" lowering A arms and shimming the lower shock mount back up 7/16". Expensive I know, but it was the only practicle way I could see getting it the way I wanted it. And it drives awsome.
