    Lower to the ground.

    How do I get my UDR to sit lower to the ground? I would like drop travel but donít want it to sit as high when driving normally.

    I don't have one, but can't you just reduce the pre-load on the springs by raising the pre-load collars on the shocks? If you need it even lower, get new softer springs.

    Good Luck!

    I'm pretty sure the pre-loads stock are already at the very top, but I would check anyways. Like Squeegie said, you could get softer springs, but another idea that I had was to do the "pen spring mod", which is basically putting a small pen spring between the piston of the shock, and the bottom of the shock body.

    I mean, you only have to do it once to the car... and you can also just do 4 first. Also, I don't think it's more of an effort if you were rebuilding the shocks.
