Question Lowering Question

Ok I have an 03 lightning so far stock with 14k just put on. I am looking for the best handling suspension. I am after more track worthy not looks or fomfort (not that I want to ride on a rock). I am not sure if I am going to stick with the stock 18's or go to a 20 but only want to fill the fenderwell proportionally. Again this is more for close circuit use not drag use. Thanks for any help.

You may also want to look at Hotchkis Suspension. They have a very good reputation amongst the Lightning crowd, and they offer a Total Vehicle System that has everything you'd need:

I highly recommend the hotchkiss, the guys over at SVTperformace.com speak very highly of it

Well we got different truck. my is a 2001 F150 SC 2WD. My nightmare is a rollover at high speed . the OEM size tires do not help at all, So I'll be looking at sport kits like eibach. on ebay they go for $300. here is the plan lower the truck w/a stift susp. and get some 18" wheel or maybe 20" whatever performes better.

What do you guys think?
