This is a bit of forward planning...

I intend to lower the suspension on me PA Velox when its on the road, which shouldnt be too far away now. I know that i could get shorter springs but i wanted to lower it and not affect the steering to much. The only other way i can think of lowering it, would be drop spindles but having them made as one offs would be a ball ache and very costly...

has anyone any suggestions from there own past experience of what can be done or used??

Following on from my previous post, i have had a few more thoughts on how to lower the PA Cresta which maybe right or completely wrong...

The main thing is, certain techniques ive seen used have been utilised on body off, work on frame/chassis not of a monocoque nature??!!

i'll put them to you guys and see what you think??

Firstly this front clip...



...mounts to existing chassis rails in 4 places like so:




can i do this, Z the chassis rail at each of the 4 mounting points like so...



...to allow the front clip to sit higher in the body thus lowering the front...or am i like Don Woody said, "Barking up the wrong tree"

The only other thing ive thought about is to cut, shorten and re-gusset the actual mounts on the front clip unit??

I know this all sounds, maybe over technical, i have been told in the passed that i over complicate things but i dont just want to cut springs down and bump stops making the car handle like a river of jellied eels!!!
