Buy a suspension kit designed to lower your vehicle 1"...

Either 25.4 mm or 1" specs to the same.

Or you could search....

I've got some Bilstein PSS coils that I'm thinking of selling. They're about 4 weeks old with not much miles on them. Send me a PM if you're interested.

I've tried searching for threads I have started or posted to, and the search does'nt find half of them. Is this something happening to others?

Go into your "User CP" and there is an option in "settings" where you can automatically subscribe to threads that you post/create.
