Front coil overs lowered front ends

A few of you are using front adjustable coil over shock conversions.

I would like to hear some Pro's and Con's as far as weight, adjustability.

I am Also trying to figure out how If possible to get the nose of my Monte to sit lower to have less drag as I am running down the track, it sits noticeably up in the front on the way down the track. I do not want a real raked look or to give up any weight transfer.

Tom, I have a set of QA1 coilovers to install yet. The biggest advantage I see (aside from ride ht) is the shock valving. On the lightest setting these pull apart like old worn hydraulic shocks. Only issue may be the one's I have appear to be adjustable the same for damp and rebound, but I could see maybe running them on a #2-3 setting and getting some needed front end travel. I think they do have the drag specific coil overs that offer a different rate for damping and rebound. The coil over set up does make it real nice for getting to the adjustment knob though.

PS - as far as install, these are designed to work with stock lower arms - from what I can see, this is not an issue unless you want to ge really low in the front end, or want to change the suspension geometry for handling.
Question, I do not have the slide rings yet, but was also told I should get them, I assume this does not create any issues with allowing the adjusting sleeve to move?
