    i don't remember where i bought them, i found them on some link here. but they give about a 4" drop max. depending on how low you want to go (4 being max) you need to buy a block to match.

    IMO flipping the keys is stupid. PHATFARMER2, show him the pic of your front tires when you did the key flip. i'm sure you will be quick to change your mind.

    use the context clues in the thread title and you will answer your own question. heres a pic of the t bar trick camber effect on your front tires, how long do you think this will last?

    yeah but, it all depends on how low you go for the camber to be afected. The lower, the more they are going to be tilted. MIne is 5 inches and its not too bad, surpridingly.

    when i did the t bar trick the pic laynlo17 just posted, i had 5 and a half inch drop and it rode like shit, wheels rubbed on the wheelwells, bouncy as hell... i def dont recomend this for a daily driver.... After i did the trick i rode it around for 10 minutes when i realized that it did not seem safe so i took it all apart and put it back to stock... then i got smart and bought the keys... mush happier with them now.... rides very very nice almost no different then stock ride quality..... it does bottom out occasionaly on big dips...

    well i was buyin them no matter what. but ya i have been saved from the awful height. haha



    you get about a 3-4" drop with the keys, and use 3" blocks in the back. i think you have to buy the U bolts but i am not sure. hope this helps.

    flipped keys will work for a lil while but i would cut the bumpstop in half and put them back in... so at least the ride wasnt so fuckin low.... the ride is very bouncy even at 10 mph or so. i would say that this is a temporary soulution for lowering... i would only do it for about a few weeks at max i guess.... But me 20 minutes was enough...




    you get about a 3 to 4 inch drop with the keys, and go with 3 inch blocks in the back.. you could do 4 inch but i dunno if i trust 4 inch blocks... i know belltech deosnt make them so there must be a reason..... anyways i bought the 3 blocks for the back from belltech and it came with everything you need, u bolts and all....
