I don't think I am going to lower it anymore. I cut out a round of coil and that's about as low as I want to go because...well...oldness.

Now as far as some bigger frog poppers, that is definitely on the menu. I'd like to keep the Bullitt wheels but maybe go 18" and staggered.

What size wheels are needed to get a good staggered look?

I dunno for sure but I'd guess keep the current width up front and then go 9 inches wide at least out back, and at minimum get a 275 width tire (if Nittos, go 315). I have 315 Nittos on the rear of the 99 and they look very good.

Dammit..once i get to home 'puter I will load some pics. One thing I like with the tires on the 99 is they buldge a bit for some curb protection.

Yup, car is lightly modded: bullitt brakes, subframe connectors, 3.73 gears, 2" drop, caster camber plates, Mach 1 front seats, Mach 1 gauge cluster, mgw shifter, double dim deck, and a small sub. She's got a lot of miles and is due for some tlc. But my old job covered half of the state of CA, so. Miles racked up quickly.
