Ok so, the suspension is the next upgrade I am looking to make on my 2000 Max. It currently has stock springs, shocks & wheels. I am going with Progressive springs and shocks as it seems they are the best bang for the buck especially since i have a coupon for free springs with purchase of shocks. I know many who have done this have opted to lower the suspension 1" or so. Lowering would allow me to sit more flatfooted but am not interested in modifying my kickstand, bottoming out on my exhaust, hitting my fender on the radiator or any of the other things that go with lowering. That being said, what are the advantages in lowering the suspension and do they outweigh the cons? And how much could i go down without having issues mentioned above?
