Default Customer wants his PT on the ground

Hi I'm new to the board and new to PT Cruisers. I have a customer that wants me to bag his PT. The thing is he wants it on the ground. He wants the rockers to sit 1/4" off the ground. Price is no object, pretty much. I think he s going to run 17's in the front and 18's in the rear. He wants the car to be on rubber bands for tires. So now what kit will put this on the ground? I see Air Ride Technolgies make a kit. But I know the front wont go that low with there kit, so I figure I could raise the tower mount where it will almost hit the the hood. Do they make drop spindles for these cars. Any help. I plan on ordering all parts with in 2 weeks. This guy is building this car for shows. It is going to the paint shop after we are done with it to get a ton of mods to the body. So any help on the suspension would be great!
Thanks

another trick is after you've lowered it all you can is to add to the body, side skirts, front air dam etc,, bring the body closer to the ground.

My customer wants to get the rockers on the ground. He is trying to get it to look like a old car. Do they make running boards for them. Is there any other way to get them down. I need as much insight as possible on this. I think I can get the rear to go pretty low but the front is my question. ANY HELP!

Yes, you can get running boards for the Cruiser, check out some of the links on the home page of this forum. Several people have thier Cruiser's bagged and can get the rear end to the ground. Do a search on this forum and also check out http://ptenthusiasts.org/PTForums/ a member there, Air Ride PT, can give you some information, do a search for Air Ride PT using the search function 'User Name'.

If we drop it to the wheel liners it will only get 3 inches from where he is allready at. Need to go six or a little less.
