This came across my youtube feed somewhat randomly. Ain't for me personally, but overall stance looks good. Doesn't say what he used...

I was all excited for that video, but he didn't say anything about what he did to actually lower it, and he didn't say anything about how it drives. Boo. Might as well be a photoshop.

I had to read through the comments. He remained coy about it but then went on to say he had experience with air bag suspension. So this is likely a bagged truck

Yea, It's not the greatest video but it's something. (Personally, I do appreciate the video) People are out there lowering them, it won't be long until more info is out there. And I did mention he didn't say what he used. ;)

I wonder why he only has 628 subscribers... Mystery of the universe I suppose. :unsure:

I definitely think I'm headed this route - no reason to have the truck so high off the ground unless you plan on off-roading, and my hope is that lowering will offset a range hit by bigger/aftermarket wheels. The original Lightning was a street truck and so should this one (especially w/ ~600hp)

I like the idea of lowering this truck. I’ll be interested to see his promised follow-up video on resulting range changes, etc. - I’m not as certain as he is that lowering will make up for increases tire/wheel size, weight, friction

not even confident lowering will necessarily result in range improvement - seems aerodynamic drag is a funny thing, with unexpected behaviors

A bagged Lightning is on my to-do. Most likely a tank will have to go in the bed since the battery looks to be taking most of space underneath. While the Platinum wheels have grown on me a little, I’ve already picked out some other wheels and am now just waiting on tires I want to become available.
I’d probably try and put it in the frunk.

If Eibach can cobble together some progressive rate lowering springs for the rear IRS I’ll be yelling at them “take my money!” 👍

I believe the parts list for that image include a computer and Adobe Photoshop.
