Boat look question!

My cg2 is currently dropped on springs 2.5 in the front and 2.25 in the rear and I have the horrible boat look. If I install coilovers and drop it 3in in the front and 3in in the back, will the boat look go away? Thanks!

You could drop the front more than the rear on coilovers and the boat look would be gone.... I got some coilovers if your interested

I am interested. But wouldn't dropping the front more than the back still make the boat look apparent because the front would be lower ?

Re: Boat look question!

the front looking lower than the rear is called rake. the 'boat look' is solely the rear being/appearing lower than the front.

if you want to use coilovers, you can set the height however you want it. so you can make the car look however you want as well.

Re: Boat look question!

If you bottom out the front coilovers and lift the front up a little instead of bottoming that out also it would appear even

So do you think if I dropped the front 2.5 Inches and dropped the back 3inches, that the rake would go away?

Re: Boat look question!

if you dropped the rear lower than the front, you definitely would not have any rake.

Re: Boat look question!

Yeah do what he said. For some reason the rear is lower. If you set both at the same exact height the rear appears to be lower. On my coilovers the rear is set a inch more than the front and the rear still seems to appear slightly lower. So just get coilovers and adjust them to your liking
