NOOB Q: Lowering Car

Does the sport package suspension let you adjust the height of the car? or you will have to purchase aftermarket spring/shocks or coilovers in order to do so?

What is a reasonable height to lower the car with 18" wheels. I don't want to roll my fenders for dropping the car too low, but want to have that "lowered" look...

thanks in advance

The sport suspension does not offer height adjustment; you are correct that you will have to purchase aftermarket spring/shocks or coilovers in order to do so. My suggestion for deciding how low you want to go is to take a look at some of the threads regarding lowered cars using specific springs (also look in the gallery section), and go from there. Generally speaking, most of the coilover options are going to offer you some degree of lowering, but you'll need to determine which set fits your needs. Finally, start communicating with some of the excellent vendors here, and they will be glad to help you decide which product best fits your needs.

Aftermarket coilover suspensions and some higher end shock/strut packages are the only options that allow you to adjust ride height
