Its not a truck even with the frame notched I dont think you get that low, this is pretty much as low as you can get on the US kits the way the frame comes






I dont know what it is about the european cars butthey seem lower, i think its because they have been doing bags longer and know how to pull the fenders right to go lower on wide wheels....EP Belgium FTMFW

It can be done but there's ALOT of work to be done to do this, and it seems the guys from across the pond have better setups to allow them to go lower. Its how the struts in the front are designed that are allowing them to go so much lower compared to the kits available in the us. I believe the most popular kit is from G.A.S. This is something I've seriously been thinking about doing down the road when maybe they'll have some euro kits over here or ones that will go lower than the ones available now.

My point is to do this on a MK4 and still have it look nice( I.E not running 15s with stretched rubber for the sake of being low because they dont fill out the fenders) is going to take extensive work that I have no seen done... Even in europe they have very low body work but I have not seen anything images of the underside of the car on the ground has anyone else?


Disclaimer: I am not saying it hasnt been done...just curious because even cars with notched frames and decent sized wheels dont look that low

I'm sure some of you guys have seen that white extra -cab rabbit pu, well I was talking to him at the Bugout and he was saying how he wanted to go lower but couldn't figure out how and I told him what I did with my rabbit pu and what Aaron and his friend did to the "Bucket" so he's gonna do this stuff and next year it should sit flat on its belly. Now he's a fabricator/welder by trade so he'll know what to do and he's already half way there with some of the stuff he's already done but for just about anyone else this would be almost too much to do.

....

what is that kit ur talking about ive only found the one from street beat customs. theres got to be a way to do it theres all types of asian cars laying pan...it would be different but it still has all the basic components as any other car. i dont think the back would be too difficult...cutting the floor..supporting the structure and tubbing, but the front has the issue of clearance with the strut mounts and keeping the stock hood. possibally a ball joint or lower a arm fabrication and obviously a lot of relocation of components. does anyone have an email address to that guy who owns that red gti with shaved doors in the pics above
