There is TONS of info on ::lowering:: the entire car. In AZ there are so many troughs and incline driveways that we are continually busting the front valance off the Bird. Is there a spring or air bag made that would actually RAISE the front or entire car slightly? I have a 5.0 LX, so I imagine the stock springs are already as stiff as I can buy. A LOW car just means DISASTER out here. I envy the rest of you with great roads!!

You probably should forget the air bag idea. It would cost way too much just to lift it 1" or so. They function best when lowered IMO.

Mark 8 front units will bolt on but you will need a compressor and controls.

Are you talking about the black plastic piece that directs air into the radiator? If so its not really needed, a lot of guys here don't have one on their cars so if it bothers you that much just rip it off. That my man is the easiest solution.:D

I almost lost mine today, there was this terrible driveway at an apartment I was checking out, and now it's hanging by two or three of those "staple" things. It doesn't really do anything, though.

Not exactly ........... it's actually the front valance with all the shark teeth(on some years) ...... ya know ....... between the fog lights!! :( They get smashed easily when the car is low on ANY kind of an incline! :mad:

Actually I think he is right. Mine was off for a while, but it looked as if something was always missing from the front, so while I had my bumper off I used some screws and put it back on. The best way to keep this from happening is to just do your best not to hit anything, not trying to be a smarta$$, its just the truth.

Just take the motor out and put a V6 or 4-banger in it's place. :D
