Default Lowering question.

I plan on going with a staggered lower, or a rake. I'm wanting 2" front drop and an inch in the rear. It's the Ford Racing Cobra Jet springs, but I'm not sure if it will tweak the drive line angles enough to absolutely need any rear relo brackets or adj. upper/lower control arms. I also plan on doing a 19x11 Niche Apex in the rear with 19x8.5 up front. 315/30's in the rear and not sure if there are any rear susp mods I need to do to make that work or if it should fit with the right offset, or what a good offset would be. Especially with lowering it. Any help appreciated guys! Thanks again

- Sam

Just put LCA brackets on last week. Big traction improvement and no wheel hop. Woo-hoo!

why? im confused by what you are trying to do. there is alread a huge rack from the factory and you want to make it worse? just do the frpp lowering springs that are 1.5 all the way around and you will still have a decent rake. you will need a 59-61 offset in the rear to fit a 315 on an 11" wheel. 315/30 will be kinda short though. thats probably around a 26" tire, so if you did run that, you wouldn't want less than a 2 inch drop in the back, or you would have more wheel gap than a raptor.

I've got a '72 and I love the rake on it, and I know I'm never gonna get it because it has leaf springs in the back, but I love the stance. I'm just trying to make sure about tire fitment and drive-line angles. And 315/30 will be the closest to factory, 315/35's are a little too big
