Terry.. you not know what your talking about! plus negative camber with your off-road wheel gap will make you look like a moron driving a busted up car.

just lower the damn thing!

that expression drives me crazy! it makes NO sense

anyways, terry spring clamps arent actually that bad, it would be almost the same thing as running sportier springs on stock shocks... if you want to do it 100% properly its gonna cost you, try to find it used or get used e30m3 suspension, that will lower it a bit

Here's how you lower it:

Use an Oxy-Ace torch on the springs, and put about 3-500lbs of weight on the front/rear end, instant 2-3" drop.

How much will it cost you? $50 maybe...
