    I am thinking about lowering my ex. not mainly for looks but for performance reasons, I mean I dont have the nice rims the clean interior and all that but I heard that lowering it a little improves handling. I wanted to know how much should I get it lowered.

    I'd say lower about 1.5-2". Not sure of who, but a company makes that size lowering coils for the 91-94s and then you can just buy a block to put in the rear.

    I helped a friend of mine lower his 94 xlt.
    He used ranger 2" drop coils and got 2" blocks for the rear.

    EDIT: The ride was soft, so you might include a sway bar kit to your better handling project.
