First, 11" has got to be pushing the limits, as 12" seems to be the max for most 2" front drops. Second, I've read that a 2" drop is the safest limit in most applications to lower an F body. Wish I could recall the article, but it was in a Chevy mag. I think you start getting into geometry problems below 2", but can't recall. Perhaps someone will chime in here.
