    Hey Guys...I'm considering lowering my F430 (w/stock wheels) and would GREATLY appreciate any comments/suggestions from those who have done so, e.g., amount lowered, problems, re-alignment, etc. Photos would also be appreciated.

    Thanks much

    I've lowered both of my previous 430 Spiders. I believe one was 19mm and the other 14mm. IMO 14 mm is just right. Car has to be re-aligned after doing so.

    I recently had my 430 lowered, slightly, to Euro/ROW ride height which works out to approx. 14-15mm front and rear. Next step was the alignment. Here you can tweak the specs to suit your personal preferences. Fairly easy process with no problems. Of course now that the car is lower, even slightly, you'll have to be that much aware of driveways and uneven tarmac. Final step for me was installing Premier Motorsport's Skid Plates to the R/L underside of the front spoiler.
