Looks like a squashed bug.

Must handle like a race car.

What is the spring rates you installed? Linear or progressive? Less spring length to reduce ride height means less suspension travel.... having trouble understanding how spacers make it 'smoother'.

It handle very good before as it was, at least better than any other SUV/Truck i ever driven before BUT man is another animal with the springs, cant speak for the spacers as far as handling because haven't put them to the test as i did the springs. but is nothing but awesome! as for spring rate? i don't know man. they are H&R sport springs 2" drop settle at about 2'75.

the spacers i say they made ride smoother because before the spacers it was a bit ruff, i guess what you can expect from a drop. but for some reason with the spacers the road (bumps, imperfections on the road and such) don't feel as hard as without them. almost as "stock" ride quality.

overall pretty happy with the look and feel.
