will lowering hurt??

(1/3) > >>

avidbowhunter:
All... my 05 gt convert. has been lowered 3". It has 275/35/zr20 tires on it. I'm concerned about the replacement cost of the tires and was wondering if going back to the stock 17" wheels and tires would affect the handling/scruffing of the car. Before i sell these wheels and tires, i want to know if going back to stock would so more harm than good. Thanks, Jeff

Soaring:
Stock is what the Ford engineers intended to be the optimum performance wheels and tires for that car. 

avidbowhunter:
hello again! Thanks for the reply. I know stock is what they intended, but mine is lowered 3". That's what in concerned about.

Soaring:
Then un-lower it.  You can put the upper control arms back to their original position as well as changing the coil springs back to stock springs. 

avidbowhunter:
I have a feeling there's been more done to it than just coil springs. I'll ask a tire pro if it will make a difference. I priced 20" tires and i about fell over when i saw the price!!!
