What is the goal to lower the car? Make it level? Have the front be lower than the rear?

Re: Some Questions........

This is a fun project to watch. Especially seeing a relative "newbie" working on a family project. Kudos to Ian for taking us along for the "ride" and hope it inspires others to tackle a project.
