Is there any way to use the RideTech StreetGrip kit but have the car sit lower (especially the front end)? I seem to remember Rodney saying at the Nats that dropped spindles were not the approved solution for the StreetGrip.
I will answer my own question after placing a call to the Ride Tech team:
They do not recommend using drop spindles for for the Street Grip, but instead said it would be better to cut the springs.
After some thought I decided to go with the coil over/4-link set up they sell, since I wanted more control of ride height and liked the strong arm replacement option over just trading out the bushings.
I'm sorry but I feel the ridetech stuff I WAYYY overpriced.

still searching for the right 56 nomad project.
George stated that because the Street Grip drops the front end already, that adding the 2 inch drop spindles may be too low, so as a result they don't recommend it. I bet there is someone here who has done it and can show what it looks like.
I have the Street Grip system on my 57í. It will lower your car a good 2 - 2.5Ē all the way around. The front springs that come with the system are shorter. Many are going to tell you that it is overpriced, but it was worth it to me. I absolutely love the way may car drives. I will post before and after pics.
