Lowering REALLY low?

Post by Quzman » Wed May 13, 2015 3:11 pm

Are there any common problems when lowering 2008 caddy?
The rear shock seem pretty much lying horizontally if dropped like 150mm downwards? losing all damping in rear?
Any problems in front? coilover rubbing to front tire/rim?
Just wondering if i need to prepare myself for something before ordering suspension kit.

Exhaust is prone to knocking on the ARB mounts when going really low.

Make sure you use shortened rear shocks rather than the OEM ones. That way they should still do their job.

You may need shortened droplinks on the front.
