    Anyone got pics of lowered 430's plus details of how much the car has been lowered. Mine arrives this week and it's riding quite high (factory settings), so I suspect a subtle adjustment will be in order; I'd like to see some examples if anyone has any. Thanks.

    Was thinking about doing the same, just worried about driveways.

    Mine is lowered 1.5 finger gap front and rear.
    It is recommended to use harder springs I also installed 430 challenge adjustable bar end links and corner balance and align .

    Joe, is that yours in the first pic, if so I think the angle makes it look lower, it looks fantastic in the pic you posted. MJA also, great looking cars :)

    In Los Angeles with pot-holes that can swallow soccer balls and small children, speed bumps, and inclined driveways, the front airdam/wing would be a disaster!

    Looks really good man! I was wondering if the ride is much different from stock height. I've lowered my other rides one suffered a lot when hitting dips in the road and the other had no difference in ride - both were done with springs, I assume you just dialed down these?

    Is the stock 430 Scud lower than a stock 430?

    It actually helped the ride. I believe mine are really just down to Euro heights. I've got a long explanation from my mechanic why we only went down the 22mm's. Basically any lower and you run the risk of bottoming out the shocks. They just aren't built for lower but can go lower.

    Thanks

    I don't think they are. I've got some pics but just too hard to tell from them. The ride is stiffer for sure

    Lawrence, the 430 in the first pic belongs to SW. He's the guy with the record holding Supra Turbo. He likes to go real fast! :)

    Red is great but a bit low for me. I do think the EU's are lower than US.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, the US ride height is higher to comply with headlight height requirements, the EU standard is a little lower, by 22mm??? So, by lowering the car just brings it down to EU height stds.
