I've got a 6 under mine and it rides good will be great once I get dropped spindles on it. Right now the only bad is the lack of travel on big bumps. A 4" beam with discs should put you in the neighborhood of 3" to 3.5" narrowed. Depeneds on how low you want to go.

I've got adapters on mine to get the porsche pattern for now so it ends up close to a 3.5" for now.

I have almost the same setup on my VW exept I run with 7" and I also have disc brakes with conversion back to 5/205. So in the end I guess i'm back to 4.5 - 5 inch narrowed again.
Are you other guys using stabilizer on your narrowed beam?

I think you need to worry bout getting your car a lil more arse before you worry bout how it drives..... baby motor like that don't really matter about the stabilizer !
