Understood, thanks for the info bro
Did you buy the 04-08 Grand Prix coilovers on the BCRacing site cause that's all I see? I know they should bolt right up but...just wondering.

Yeah no problem. Figured I'd let you know incase you wanted to cancel the order and get them directly from BC themselves. I already had these in my cart from a month or so ago. I can't seem to find it now however...

Cool, the $30 off coupon is BC30OFF if you want to order directly from them and save a bit of money.

Ok. ZZP already processed and shipped my order so...probably not gonna happen. Oh well worse things could happen.
Do you have a wait time on yours? 2-4 weeks I think? They said they were stocked in the US which will make them come faster...hopefully

Ooh I like that. I'm slamming mine as low as possible while still being able to make it up the slight incline for work. I might need to do something to the plastic inner fender well. I have 245x19's on my car which are close to rubbing now. If I get it all done in time I might go to the W-body meet in Michigan. It's around a hour away.

Man, I'd like to lower my car at least a little bit, but the roads around my place (mostly when your coming from parking lots, and going to anything that's not a parking lot) make me wish I had a lift kit, I'd be good with another 2.5" - 3" lol.

Even our main intersection has a "drop" that's just a little bit unreasonable. Learned that the hard way when something metal hit the concrete leaving the parking lot of Sobeys one day in my old Buick. Also not to forget...

Maybe.

If I'm remembering correctly, There are a few scrapes in the paint on the lowest part of my bumper, I believe on the right hand side. Previous owner might not have driven the car over 40 KPH but they did something to that spot! perhaps... I'll have to verify that tonight 'cuz I might just be making something up in my head... (I'm not crazy! perhaps just a little bit over protective of the car that's all!!!)

maybe throw in a skid plate... Sheesh I hate some of these roads.

Just went out and measured and I'll be able to drop it a full 3" all the way around, while still allowing me to get my jack underneath without driving up on something. That should also give me the look I want while lowering that center of gravity that is way too high right now.
I'll post pictures before I install them, but I put Monroe quickstruts in the rear 55,000 miles ago and the rear is now 2" lower than the front Lol 28.5 in the front and 26.5 in the back. It actually gives me the stance I want, I just want it lower
