Low Syncro

Postby mrmule » 26 Nov 2017, 17:25

Hi all... Loving syncro life, but I must say its rare Rusty Dusty ever sees any offroading. I think I'm happy knowing the 4wd is there in a fix, but most of the time I'm driving it decoupled. So I'd rather a lower stance I've decided, and so I'm interested to see if anyone else out there has ever lowered one and any unusual issues they may have encountered. All comments welcome. Toodle pip :D

I would think you'll get it about as low as a regular caravelle, but in the process make it horrendous to drive :?

If it's about handling then try fitting a front spoiler, and you could also maybe use a lower profile tyre to reduce movement in the sidewall.
