How much DROP did you get from factory-lowering your Z?

Hey all,

Lowered my Z via the factory hardware this weekend. Looks like I got 1/2" out of the front, and only 1/8" or so out of the rear...

I was under the impression that the rear would drop more than it did (and the front wouldn't move much). I'm liking the way the front looks, but I think the rear could stand another 1/2" drop.

I left two full threads in the rear. Should I go any more in the rear?

Also, how long did you all have to drive/let the car sit before the car "settled" into its new lowered height? I'm wondering if the rear will go any lower after more driving...

I'm not quite sure how much I got out of lowering, but the front measures 26 7/8 to the center of the wheel well and the rear measures 27 7/8. I had to drive the car a couple of times before the settling stopped.
PA -- How many threads did you leave showing in the rear?


I left two threads sticking out of the nut.
Wow! Just measured my distances at lunchtime:

REAR: 28-5/8"
FRONT: 27"

Now, we're talking about measureing from the ground to the start/bottom of the highest point of the fender, yes?

...And I'm a full inch higher than you after doing the same adjustments?


Just measured mine stock:
28 5/8 rear
27 7/8 front

Some cars are just higher than others, 1fastdog's FRC looks like a 4wd. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Mine is 26 15/16" in the front and 27 1/4" in the rear.
