    It could be dangerous, it may also be illegal depending on where you live. I know in New Zealand if you lower the suspension you need to get the car certified to make sure it is safe

    The quality of the lowering job is MUCH more important that the front being lower than the rear.

    The front is lower.

    You feel sick when you're driving because you feel like you're always going downhill.

    This is known as staggering, and there are a few different answers to this question:

    The legal answer, depending on where you live, you could get ticketed for it.

    The aesthetic answer, depending on the vehicle and the amount of drop, it could improve its looks or have the total opposite effect.

    The functional answer, this points the front end of the car lower to the ground. This is something common in funny car dragsters in order to increase downforce on the rear end of the vehicle to increase stability at very high speeds. So unless you are going to be driving your car frequently at 170+ mph, it's not going to have any practical benefits.

    The overall impact, the cars suspension system will be thrown way off kilter and will most likely need much modification to accommodate the new position, along with a four wheel alignment and adjustment of the headlights if you go crazy on the level of drop.

    It'll go faster. Cars can always go faster when pointed downhill.
