The red rules. Lowering it makes a big diffeence to the stance. What say you on performance ie. body control etc.

OOh la la. This forum has better "emoticons"

Well then 20 it is for me. Looks great! How hard is it to see of the front windows at night time?

I have no problems with the side windows at night. I do walk behind my car before I back out, and lower the front windows if there is any obstruction behind me.

The car handles extremely well. Pavement breaks can be a little harsh at times, but nothing I can't handle. As far as cornering, hold on. Problem is I need to take all the crap out of my car because it slides all around. Golf Clubs, computer bag, travel bag..etc...

How about putting the gxp suspension on a gt? Cheaper? Furthermore shocks struts and springs should only cost around 800 dollars, and install is another 100 dollars. Thats whay I spent on my stang. Any thoughts?

Who's doing the install for $100?
I didn't need cheaper, I could afford what I've spent.
