Lowering question

Post by Waltdog » Thu Apr 25, 2019 1:07 pm

How much should I have my caddy lowered on 225/40/18’s? Has anyone got photos of 40mm vs 60mm etc? Thanks in advance

You can go quite low buddy. Set what you think. Drive round the block so the suspension settles a bit. Check again. It only takes a few mins to raise or lower it if your using a ramp.

sorry for the post hijack. This pic isn't in Skullys build thread. Skully did you have the roof sprayed or is that also vinyl like the side panels I've been thinking of doing the same to mine.
