    Whats up everyone?

    I've had my XR for a year and a half now and I have finally decided I want to drop it down some. My issue is, I live in an apartment complex with speed bumps every ten feet. I drive over 10-15 of them a day. What would you recommend to be the max drop I could safely run without tearing up my front bumper?

    I would just stick with the xii drop. 1.7" front 2"rear drop. That's front coils and either blocks or lowering leafs for the rear then add qa1 shocks in the rear to keep from bottoming out

    "Because that lowrider crap" :eviltongue:


    I've run the XII Performance drop for 7 years. It'll clear most regular sided speed bumps.

    All of our kits clear speed bumps. All of ours kits with the drop coils still clear curbs as well (barely). If you adjust the coilovers as low as they will go, you'll clear speed bumps, but not curbs. Also if you adjust the coilovers that low, you will have troubles finding a shop that can get it aligned. The drop coil kits are easy to align with the right shop that has experienced techs.
