I'd like to get a lower ride. Nothing radical and still have a good handling car. How low can I go?

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=38731&hilit=lowering+ride+height&start=0 Here is a link that discusses the topic. Also in this link is another link to someone who did it on their speedster. My C Outlaw was decambered 1 degree in the rear then front lowered to have front very minimally nose down. Of course you will need to have alignment done after changes.
