THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT SOMEBODY UNDERSATANDS. THANKS FOR THE BRAKE TIP,WHAT TYPE DO YOU SUGGEST. IM TRYING TO LIFT A 96 CAPRICE 5.7 350. I HAVE 22'S ON IT NOW WITH NO LIFT AND FROM TIME TO TIME I GET A LITTLE RUB BUT FOR THE MOST PART ITS OKAY. I JUST KNEW IF I UPGRADED TO 24'S I WOULD NEED TO DO SOMETHING. IM LOOKING AT GOING WITH A 305/40R24 WHICH IS ONE SIZE UP FROM A LOW PROFILE,JUST WONDERING IF THE HIGH LIFT COIL SPRINGS WILL WORK WITH THAT SIZE TIRE OR DOES IT HAVE TO BE A LOW PROFILE.
Most of us here don't like the look of a lifted CAR with huge rims, but he didn't ask for our opinion about it.
I know that some people are going to their local 4x4 shop and getting lifts done to accomidate large wheels, you might want to try talking to one of those.
hey now - my 15s are okay (one of em is in a cool semi-circle with a W on one side from hitting a curb ... yea it's in the garage now) so i'm gettin impala 17s - i hate big rims ... i don't see the performance gain therefore ... i see nothing at all. (i'm keepin my 9C1 rims for drag radials mwuahaha

not everyone is into going fast!!! why cant people understand that??? and you never see people that arent into going fast poking fun at someone who just spent 5k on a stroker motor or a supercharger!!! whats the use of doing that are you gonna race everyone you see on the street?
Im with you on that one man cause i know my car is for showing off im not really trying to race it. I just want enough horsepower to turnover those 24's as they chop. I guess i started something with the lift question but thats okay, you know what they say "different strokes for different folks". Me personally i want my chevy ridin high!!! FORGET A SUV

another thing is you dont see people who slam there trucks getting made fun of? isnt that the same as lifting a car? they are both oxymorons!!! people just need to open their eyes and appreciate all aspects of car customizing... yea some things people do to there cars might seem goofy but hey its their car their money so move on if you dont like it.
its like they say in elementary school, "if you got nothing nice to say dont say nothing at all"
I actually thought about contacting Choo to fab up a copy of his frame rail/steering brace as Chicagoareabmx had done. It looked really sturdy from the pictures on his chassis strengthening thread, but I was concerned that it might take up too much real estate in the front of the engine. I going...

Also can anyone post a pic of their SS lowered to the 1.25 inches Front and 1 inch Back? I'm trying to see if the...
Anybody ever used this bump stop from the company Energy Suspension to relocate their rear end “center top” bump stop? It’s part # 9.9150G. Here is an old forum quote (the link is broke but if you manually enter the part # it shows up) from 2002 which is an answer to another person having his...
Hello, I have my rear end out for rebuild and want to change my upper and lower control arm bushings while I have room to do so as well as maybe put some chassis paint on some areas where the vehicle needs it (surface rust) where the shocks and springs sit at top. I’ve been reading about upper...
