Why wait for winter to end? I'm driving my 'Voy around in the snow and no problems. It still has enough ground clearance for you to drive over some over high snows. And yeah I'm still using my 22s, never took them off:weird: Btw, I'm also on GF springs if that helps. Check out my gallery to give you an idea on the drop.

i just got the same springs and brand new 22's for a c-mas present to myself. i put them on and they are fine in the snow. i also bought an adjustable panhard bar from suicidedoors.com for the rear. lowering 3" really kicks the axle to one side. that bar fixed that real easy. the bar is only like $80

the stock bar is non adjustable and as you lower it pushes the axle to one side (or actually allows the body to go to one side). this bar goes in the stock location and is adjustable so you can bring the axle back to center. you don't have to have it, but why wouldn't you want to be able to center the axle perfect for as cheap as they are.

:iagree:

it is optional but when you are lowering you want to do it the proper way......

here other things IMO would also help with the lowering....

djm upper control arms
front ss struts
rear bell tech shock or nitro drop shocks
panhard suicide bar

Can this panhard bar be adjusted by myself? What kind of measuring tool(s) do I need to perform a proper alignment/centering? Eyeballing work?:confused:

the ground force instructions tells you where to cut the bump stops.

on adjusting the panhard bar, what i did was take some kite string and a couple fishing weights on the end and i taped it to the side of the tb so that it hung down across the center of the wheel. that allowed me to measure from the string to the centercap. could be other ways to do this but that seemed easy enough for me so i did it that way
