    No need to add body to these cars.

    the f-bodies just don't look right at their stock height...lower it and it will absoulutly change the whole look of the car..and will look like how it should have from factory

    Lower it, mine is lowered and I love it. I do have to watch the road more carefully though. But that is the case will all lowered cars.

    If you don't need a bigger air deflector then you can, but the air deflector I had to use with the kit I had sat only 3.5"s off the ground at stock height. If it was lowered that would only be like 1- 1.5 inches!

    I lowered my car AND put the kit on. Looks great and still handles great. Sure I have to be careful around large speedbumps and steep driveways, otherwise for me it's not really a big deal. Do I occasionally scrape the front spoiler, yeah, but I'm also careful where I drive.

    theres no way i could do both, with the ground effects alone i had trouble in some drive ways, and had to be really careful on speedbumps, with both id scrape everywhere, i hate the idea of killing my track times, but with drag radials im sure i could still hook up alright, im not sure how much i would sell them for if i decided to, there like 760 off ebay after shipping, so id ask somewhere under that, there more or less brand new, never been painted and were only on the car for a couple weeks, but im not sure if i want to use them or not

    looking at your car makes me want to do both, but i know with the ground effects alone i had to jack the car up to get a lift underneath it, and the jack barely fit and with it lowered, working on the car would be near impossible, but it would look awesome, and i drive the car extremely careful so im really not worried about scraping or hitting curbs when parking, but ill figure it out, both make the car look so much better
