Don't worry, there's no such thing as too low.

the problem is finding the right shop. some places won't touch a car unless they sell you the parts neither will they offer any sort of warranty for this kind of work.

You'll need to find an alignment shop that knows how to work with lowered cars. If you need a recommendation, send me a PM.

HAHH wish you were in japan. They have dudes in pretty much all shops that works on only drift/race cars. I have been in the game for 10 years and always did my own decent alignments. I dropped my skyline off one day because of a military obligation that I could not get around....... got the car back and drifting was easier... could not believe it.

^ dude, you know what helped me drift easier? the pbm knuckle steering mod. i only have tein tie rods, & unless you have the extra long pbm inner tie rods which are currently on order, you wont achieve the max angle & i was still able to get pretty sideways. idk if you have a knuckle mod, but if not you should get one. it makes transitions way easier, & a bunch of other benefits i cant think of. here's the best pics of the wet track day

By chance, do you have a link to the PBM parts you have? I might be interested in getting some...
