Question, As I go about rebuilding Bugsy's Front Suspension I'd like a consensus, do I reinstall the Front End Lowering Kit or regain my ability to negotiate driveways and curbs. Like the look, think it helps handling, don't like dragging the exhaust sometimes.

There's a fine balancing point you have to find to avoid rubbing tires.
Mine is too low now, needs to go up 1/4 to 3/8 inch.
I do like the front low, would go lower but for rubbing tires on sharp turns and the back is too high even though I have removed the spacers.

Got
Moss Kit in place now that lowers 1". Stance looks cool, not sure if it really helps handling though.

Remember to double check alignment - unless already done.

I'm planning on raising my midget. I'm tired of having to get out boards to get it on the lift. And... I can't get into my friend's neighborhood without driving through some random guy's yard to evade a speed bump.

Thanks Trevor, I may just go that route. Bugsy is now up on jackstands, bonnet off, wheels off, the front end comes apart tomorrow morning.
