Where's the goon that started this? He never came back to explain why this is cool. Idk how making your truck squat like a little b**** with no load on it can be cool by any stretch of the imagination. Not to mention paying $1000+ for a lift kit and only using half of it. This is the most ignorant trend out right now, there's some would be sweet trucks running around with a broke suspension look.

OK Jamie, we get our next myth from the internet. Seems there is a trend of lowering the back of a vehicle to make it look much cooler. It goes by many names like Cali Squat or Carolina Squat but they all have the same look apparently.

Well Adam, let's test this myth out. First we need to find a vehicle, then we need to get the rear lower than the front.

Well, we managed to lower the rear of this vehicle but we aren't sure why..................

You two are idiots. You have to find two similar TRUCKS, then squat one in the rear and compare them. How is it I'm on the B team?

OK, we have these two Ford trucks. One has the "squat" and the other doesn't. Let's check this myth out!

It started way back when in Cali ( like most car/truck things wether they be good or bad), those stupid kids though think they invented it. They call it pakolata lean or something like that. It's funny if you tell them that no they actually didn't come up with it an it was done in Cali a long time ago they get all but hurt an say no we invented it haha. It's pathetic, who knew people could get upset about not coming up with one of the gayest looking things out there

I give Cali credit for a lot of stupid stuff. They deserve it too.
