Is this low enough for you, the 89 lowered with the hi-lows wound all the way in (locknut removed), arches tubbed and additional bumpstops fitted to the rear to stop the arches from being ripped off.

Will probaly rase it up a wee bit, but atleast i know the wheels won't make contact with the arches on full bump.

how low can you go on 12's without cutting the arches, i.e- what measurement from sills to road??? and when do you need lowered shockabsorbers??

With alot of deep dish 12's you'll still need to cut the wings to get full lock clearance, even if the cars not lowered.
