ok...this is gonna be fun...I've got new rims and tires coming on monday - 17's with 215/45/17 tires - and I'm buying tanabe coilovers this week to drop my car. I've got a 2003 GT with no body kit. Aside form daily driving I do track days at Road Atlanta (F1 circuit style track, no drag racing), and I was wondering what I should set my drop at with the coilovers...I was thinking 1" - 1.5" up front and 2" - 2.5" out back to kind of level the car out. I'm looking for a drop that's not really gonna give me issues with driveability (tire rubbing), and any help or suggestions are more than appreciated
I have my Tanabe's dropped all the way in the front & the rear is probably around 2". The car feels really flat when I take a sharp turn at a highspeed. I dunno if you wanna drop your front that far but I havent scraped in a while & I don't have a body kit either. I also don't have any problems with rubbing. My tires are 215/35/R18 & I would recommend setting the front to #1 & the rear to #3 on the (the knob that adjust the dampening)
that's what I was thinking...I just wanted suggestions to make sure I don't have any tire rubbing...I'm sure I'll figure it out once I get them on there tho...just wondering what everyone's thoughts were
