CATman!

Hey dude, Im wanting to get the rear ass of ma wagon lowered to bring it in-line with the front. I understand u put some blocks between the leaf and the axle. How does this affect yer ride?? Does it decrease body roll alot?? How much does it cost???

Cheers

Brent

Well I'm not CATman but I think I can answer this one.

It will do absolutely nothing to ride/handling etc.
All it does is move the axle away from the spring pack. Springs and shocks remain as they are, nothing is altered.

It is a simple block so it doesn't cost much, it just bolts in between the spring and the axle housing. This allows the wagon body to move down in relation to the wheels, that's it.

dood

i got all scared when i saw my name up there, i though oh no, here it is, theve found out that i'm a prick..
ah i've also put in pedders pegressive rear shocks that geat harder as u go down, and that way it did help, but other then that it looks way better, it cos my $90 for 2 blocks, and u bolts and all the jazz u will need to put in the lowering blocks, ther were a 2" drop and from pedders, hope this helps. it cos me somethign like 350 to lower my car, wif front springs, rear lowering blocks, and we rear shocks. and i think it looks sweet, and handls pritty good

how did u go d00d??? end up droppin it at all????? i know i could have gone further to level it up more just for the flatter look, but it would have made it pritty much useless, so i'm happy wif how it is now.

oh dam, heheh not another set of those mags, nah it should look SWEET. what body kit u gonna go?? i would suggest lowering the whole thing rather then puttin a body kit on it, i love the look of my car, its at a gr8 hight, i keep on havin these bad voices in my mind tellin me "go lower" " go lower" but i have to tell them to Shut the **** up... but i'm also thinkin of goin pump ups in the arse of my car, and koni adjustables in the front but i'm the same need some $$$$ oh and then there is the T5 that i've found but need to pay for and also some nice MPFI... Doh its never gonna get done :(
