Lowered my friends Chevy today

Looks really good, but I would be scared to drive it with the frame so close to the ground.

when you just mash over things in front of people they go wow he must be small, when you stop traffic in your lane to pull into a vons parking lot people think wow that truck is really low i cant believe i had to stop because this **** is to low to drive on streets im gonna have to keep staring because i just cant believe whats going on in front of me right now.

thats exactly what hes goin for.

I think i kinda remember him wanting some different 20's but besides that he just wants to bag it.

ATM he has no shocks, which are on order...so theres tons of rebound lol but if its still that bad with his shocks and swaybar hooked up..he wants to bring the front back up an inch. Im jelous of how easy it was to get his truck this low.

just a flip kit and lower control arms and hes this low.

my mazda seems sky high compared to his truck lol
