My two pennies, if you go too low (ex: lower than 1.5"), your stock struts will wear out more quickly. Get performance struts if you're gonna drop below 1" or so. ;)

That is a fact. I have AGX's and they are in danger territory. KYB says that the warranty is VOID with lowering more than 1.5 inches, which I'm at. :eek: I should do the smart thing and get different springs. Prodrive P1 perhaps. :sunny:

When I bought my car, it had Tein S-Tech springs, they were even lower than that. I think it was a 2" drop, I dunno. You could barely fit a finger between the front tire & the fender.


Nice for looks, but not very comfy and not the best handling either. For the beat-up pavement I drive on, stock springs & good tires is plenty. I'd like some camber plates up front, that's a big weakness of our car. With your car parked, turn your wheel all the way in either direction, and go outside and look at your tires. POSITIVE CAMBER, even if you're at max. negative camber allowed by stock setup.
