cup kit is an agressive 2.5".
The only springs I know of that would drop it that much would be neuspeed race. But we all know the reputation that neuspeed has around here

My H&R's are around 1.6 or 1.7 all around.

Ok, thats what the add says but from everyone i have talked to, after the springs settle, it ends up a 2.5 in the front and about 1.9 in the back.....
now to complete my previous promise, where do you live so i can come beat your ass.

The Cup Kit is definitely lower than 2 inches. I think that we should all beat your ass.

HEH HEH chuckle! chuckle! H&R makes neuspeed springs, they just stamp their name on it. The neuspeed race springs are nice but require the use of bilstein or koni struts to get the best performance out of them. The neuspeed springs are some of the best I have ever run.

Also the Cup Kit is a harsh ride for most people.
Jamex makes a 2.25 kit, but I don't know the price.

BTW, The Cup Kit lowered my car about 2.5, but my stock suspension was shot so my car was a true 4x4

Greg, spend the money and go with the setup I have. H&R sports and Koni adjustables. Or you can save a little bit and get Bilsteins.
