put some XT or RX lower control arms on with rear sway bars, RX rear disk brakes, and some stiffer springs.

Good luck, and Welcome to the board.

Welcome :D

Some people here have just chopped the springs and had good results. Check out the Search feature and I bet you'll find lots of info or atleast who to talk to.

Peace

I was always told that lowering a vehicle meant that you lowered the clouds to the roof of the vehicle.

Welcome to the board. There was a recent thread on who has lowered their cars. That might be a good starting point.
