Swapping wheels? Adding suspension? Adding traction mods? This is the place for anything between the body and the ground!

Hey guys. Been lurking the forum for a while. Finally decided to join. Done a couple of mods to the LM (lightning McQueen) and lowering it is my favorite mod so far. Sorry for being one of those guys that didn’t take any pictures. I can take some later if anyone is interested.
For the front, I cut out one inch from the steering/wheel holder. I went a little to low in the front which resulted in rubbing and the tire getting stuck when turning. So I had to do a lot of trimming. I might have some photos of what I had to cut out. I will look for them and update the post.
For the rear I found a 7/16 caster mount bracket to hold the axle. Then I just spaced it out about 3/4” to lower it. I could go lower but then I have to cut out some plastic which I didn’t want to do.

The front is already lowered in both photos
