Lowered?

This is a discussion on Lowered? within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; I was wondering... Does this car appear to be lowered I notice a lot of the other TAs around town ...

    Lowered?

    I was wondering... Does this car appear to be lowered I notice a lot of the other TAs around town sit way higher than mine. Was it lowered by the previous owner?

    My life is a

    it's definately lowered! look at the springs-they might say something on them. Hows the ride? if you have a lowered car on stock shocks-it will feel very sloppy.

    i'm new to WS6 life but aren't the stock WS6 shocks really good shocks?? i can't think of why it would be sloppy unless you are going on the age of the shocks alone?

    in stock form they are OK shocks. However, once you lower the car, you've compressed the shocks beyond their ability and they are inable to function properly. Most who lower their car go with Koni single adjustable shocks [about $850 for 4] or revalved Bilsteins [about $500 for 4]

    My car (not lowered),



    Your car,



    looks like yours may have been lowered a little. Also it might be the shadow but it looks pewter rather then silver.

    WS6 stock shocks SUCK. Even with the stock springs.
    Much worse than just suck with lowering springs.

    I have no problem answering questions.

    Currently sitting on ProKit springs and the stock (shitty) shocks.
    I am picking up Koni SA's next month for it. Yet to decide if I will keep the current springs or use Strano springs.
    I LOVE the current stance, so I will probably keep the springs.

    In case he didn't know Mr. Luos is the reason I got into TAs... I followed him silently when I lived in Littleton and was in High School at Chatfield. I often watched him at Bandamiere *spelled wrong* Saw his vids on Youtube and couldn't get enough of his TA so now i had to buy one of my own. God makes me sound like a stalker huh?

    Congrats.

    My girl and I had our daughter 13 months ago.
    The car hasn't seen many miles since, but it is still here.
