I got a couple questions about lowering my girlfriend's cobalt.
First off I am wondering what some of you would recommend as far as coilovers. She does not race my car or anything so this would strictly be for looks. I am wondering what brands produce better more reliable products.
Also, I am wondering if we would have to eventually replace struts or shocks with lowering her car. We would only drop it maybe 2 inches depending on what her stock parts could handle. I know on my car if I go any lower then 2 inches i'd have to get camber kits to fix the extra load put on the wheels. Do cobalts have that same problem?
Also I know that this isnt a suspension question, but I was wondering what you guys might think about the SS high spoiler put onto the LS. I am considering picking one up and replacing the low stock wing. I've been trying to find a pic of an LS with the SS spoiler but I haven't been too lucky yet.
Thanks for the help I really appreciate it.
I cant answer all the questions, BUT i can answer a few.
First things first. dont get coilovers if your not gonna race and if you want to drop it strictly for looks. coilovers= over $1K. springs= $100-300 dollars.
get springs if you want to just drop 2 inches. Ive got eibach sportlines, 2.5 inch drop in the rear, 2.0 inch drop in front. Look good, handle good, ride quality is pretty good.
A lot of people are still on stock struts and shocks. You will have to probably replace that after awhile though. If you can afford springs, struts/shocks all in one trip, do it i guess.
Personally, im on stock struts and shocks.
SS wing on LS? dont do it dude. looks out of place unless you have a body kit or something WITH lowering springs.
