I've been looking into lowering my Terrain -- the gap at the top of the wheel wells really bothers me. I've come across an Eibach lowering kit for an '08 Envoy, and I think it may work...provided GM still uses the same springs (which I'm not sure about).

Then I got an email from Airbagit.com. I've attached the email below. Just wondering if anyone has experience driving a vehicle with airbag suspension? Has anyone come up with any other options for lowering their Terrain? For the record, I'm not looking to "slam it"; just lower it 2 inches in the front and 3 in the back. Though I'm sure the students I teach would love to see it.

Seems like alot of money just to lower the vehicle
If those wheel wells bother you so much ,just hang some old push brooms on the lower edge of the wheel wells like the big rigs have(to keep down water spray comming out of the wheel wells)you could even color code them to match your vehicle
But hey first in the world would give you great pleasure for your 3 grand I guess

You dont have much clearance under the front bumper the way it is stock, why would you want to lower it? Unless your removing the trim under the bumper also?

Yeah, I wouldn't lower the Terrain/Nox just for the sake of looks..but that's just me. Also, lowering 2-3 inches is going to bring it down to nearly the same ground clearance as an average sedan...we have less than 8 inches as it is.

I just bought a 2013 Terrain Denali and I'm looking for a way to lower mine for the same wheel well gap reason. Did you have any luck on your search? I'm coming up with nothing...
