if you're going to bother with changing the springs, you might as well get the real deal lowering springs

If I did not have the sport I would just go with aftermarket. Since I already have the sport suspension it sits low enough for me. I still have to be careful when I park sometimes.

just take a torch to your stockers, it'll weaken them and lower the car


any good tuner shop can do it, cheap too










but really, just buy some springs maybe $300 plus install

achal: the ZSP springs will bring your car down about 0.6 inches. Its a very mild drop but might yield you some benefits in the handling department.

By real deal, H&R Sport springs seem to be a popular mod. I think that one drops the car about 1.2 to 1.5 inches...

H&R sport drops 1.3 on the front and 1.2 on the rear if i'm not wrong and its stiff too
i dropped mine on eibach pro-kit, 1.2 front and 1.0 rear..not that low but good enough for me and its a lil bit softer than h&r
so it all depends on ur preference..there's h&r race as well as eibach sportline, both have more aggressive drops
if u have the cash might as well get coilovers
