I've been reading a couple of old threads regarding lowering the P6 but I'm a bit confused about the front. Some say lowered springs will work, others say parts of the suspension will need to be professionally shortened. Looking at the car tonight in the shed it's BEGGING to be bagged....
Just cut the bottom sections off a pair of old front wings & weld them onto the bottom edges of your front wings, then bolt a spare pair of outer sill covers to the bottom of your existing sill covers. Then repeat the wing treatment with the rear wings.
Hey presto, a low cost lowrider.
If you want to go the whole hog get front & rear valances too.
I'm wasted here, l really am........ literally.
If you think about it bagging the rear is straightforward, and if you cut off the pushrod on the bellcrank and weld on a platform bagging the front is no hardship either. No one said you cant have a horizontal bag.
No I am NOT going to do it.
But to get a car on the ground you would need to clearance the inner wings, as the bell crank would be touching at the top. Oh and your steering would not take kindly to it either.
Oh well time for tea.
RRRR the bottom front links are two rods joined together by a ball joint. they move on different axis so when they rise or fall they try to pull the ball joint apart. Lowering or raising the cars height is going to pre-load the ball joint and the rubber bushes. At minimum you will wear the joint and the rubber bushes aren't going to like it either.
I enjoy seeing well executed cars regardless of type, and have seen some amazing lowriders.
It is also true that air suspension is no longer necessarily sub par for handling, tech advances have meant you can build a very well setup car.
When going purely for style, it’s nice to make them
subtle enough to be classy still I think, like this Volvo Amazon
