    lower a 06 gto?

    I got an 06 GTO M6 with the factory 18 inch wheels. Has anyone tried to lower one yet? With all the talk about tire rub, rolling fenders, I just want to drop it a little with out all the other problems.

    Thanks,
    John

    I'd wait until the results of strut rub are finalized. Anything you do prior will negate a freebie.

    hi,

    im from australia and well i dont know why u would have issues with rubbing because the ones here (Monaro's aka GTO's) are so simular in the rear end that there shouldnt be... we have blokes rolling on 20inch wheels and have them so far under the gaurds all u can see is chrome.

    plus they look alot better handle better and dont look like a 4x4.

    on 18's u'll have no worrries come back when your trying to fit 20+ inch wheels

    Check out Pedders. They have some lowering stuff.

    IMO they have the best suspension options for our cars.

    No but there are several members of the local GTO (CVGTO) group that have used Pedders stuff and they swear by it.
