If done correctly, and if you are not after just appearance, they really improve handling, and eliminate wheel hop. If you are only lowering it about an inch, there not bad. One thing I would recommend is to make sure you have struts in good condition, and strut bearings. If they are old, they will die Believe me!! :lol: You ride will get noticeably stiffer, but I liked that, it didn't ride like a bowl of jello any more.
