Hello all. I am brand new to this forum. Here is my question.
I drive to the steel mills everyday and where I enter is the truck exit. The road is extremly bad and I do not want to get a truck. I love my g6. What will it take to make it "offroad" capable? I would perfer a lift to it also. Make it a little bit aggressive. Making the car be able to handle very rough roads is my goal. I have a 2006 g6 v6 sedan.
you dont need to really do anything at all to it unless you have like 2' deep holes, ive had my GXP on a lot of "roads" and rivers in WY with no problems you just have to have common sense lol......however i just lowered my car on coilovers, and because ill be tking a trip to wyoming/ montana again this summer i wanted to see how high you can raise it back up, and it appears you can raise it higher than stock to where i have about 12" of ground clearance or so...........if you want an extra inch of clearance get some bigger tires you can fit at least 235/50/18s (not sure what your equivelent 17" size would be) so theres an inch or a little better more ground clearance......as other 6s come with 225/5018s as compaired to your 225/50/17s
u can prob do it with coilovers but i think your best bet will be air bags because you have to take the wheels off every time you want to adjust the height on the coilovers
I was going to say you should look into airbags.
I'm currently looking at installing a set onto my car. At the flip of a switch you can be nice and low and good looking on nice pavement, and then lift it up all the way to clear those bad areas.
We know a coilover kit for the 9-3 will fit our cars, so why not an airbag kit? I've tried doing research and Airbag It claim their kit's are vehicle specific and are not universal. I've sent them a couple of e-mails trying to get it all straight but have heard nothing back.
