I have to weave between the potholes so much around here that it is hard to tell if I am drunk or not when driving...lol. Then there is the dips and speed bumps going across the roads that stock height cars scrape on and when the ground settles there is a 2-3" difference in the height of some bridges! It is like hitting a curb! I slow down and about crawl over the ones I know about.

I have my rears set about stock height and just have the fronts lowered, it gives it a nice rake and looks cool.

The volt cant get in and out of my driveway without scrapping. We have horrible parking lots, and nice big holes in the freeways, not sure where you see nice roads out here. Sf is worse.

Yeah, it has been over 10 years since I was there so they could have been new then and trashed by now...lol The driveways were the only things that were not great but I just went slow and it was not a big deal...

i need to get the front coil overs apart and look for a part number on the shock tube, but i I cannot get the nut off. The shaft of the shock just spins, think I can hold it with vice grips and not screw it up? I am using an impact gun to try and get he nut off

Yeah, if you do not care about the shaft then grip down tight anywhere on it. But if you are wanting to reuse the strut then I would either grip up at the top or wrap something around the shaft before putting the vice grips on it (rubber hose or something). If you score the shaft then it will mess up the seal and start leaking.

Post up the numbers you have, I am looking for a replacement set for my fronts that have a shorter shaft so I do not bottom out as much...
