Not always do aftermarket kits provide weight savings and often the cheaper stuff are made out of material that weigh just as much as the OEM stuff. Even when you do find the lighter stuff that costs more, its not that much you're saving.

Came across this pic of a lowered Stinger on Vossen wheels. Have to say that I really like how it looks with a lowered stance, and I'm eager to see other builds.

What a difference a couple inch drop makes. That setup looks really clean on the white Stinger. I've heard that there are talks to bring the concept yellow to production.

Lowering a car that far gives it a horrible and impractical ride.

When it comes to cars, we know that often people sacrifice utility for looks. Definitely wont be running that Stinger in the winter with that setup. Wonder if there is any wheel well rubbing.

There are so many potential problems when a car is lowered that I just simply don't see the point of doing so outside of track specific vehicles. Chances of bottoming out increases, tires wear unevenly, and sometimes it can be too close to the anti-lock brake system, the tire sidewalls, etc. At least it's not stanced, that's just the bottom of the barrel to me.

As much as I dislike stanced cars, just wanted to show off this Liberty Walk inspired Stinger. I do like the widened body kit and exposed intercooler, but I could do without the slammed suspension and wheels.

Never did like Liberty Walk's exposed rivets look no matter which car they mod and stanced cars just grinds my gears, especially to the point where the wheels are angled outwards like that. What a waste of a good Stinger.
