need help.
i want to lower my car but dont know how low to go
i will be slapping on 17' rims
and i do plan on driving the car during winter
any input would be great.
also would it be bad if i just bought lowering springs eg neuspeed or eibach.
thanks.
please give me the lowering height eg 2',2.5'

ok, but didn't he say he wanted to drive it in the winter? don't make your car into a snowplow! for winter driving don't go lower than 2" drop.
of course i'm not speaking from experiance, so never mind

just save up and get coilovers, then you can go as low as you want in the summer and raise them back up in the winter, or you can just swap your stock suspension back on for winter http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

i would buy new shocks and struts because if you place lowering springs on stock absorbers they'll eventually go out b/c they can't handle the spring rate and soon your ride will be horrible.peace
