H&R Race is too low........

I have the H & R race springs: 2.0" Front & 1.5" Rear

Anyone in the L.A. area that has the Eibach Pro-Kit or H & R Sport springs.......
and wants a more aggressive drop want to swat springs?

H & R Race would be perfect for 18"-19"......I have 20's....and the front rubs with turn into driveway.

H&R race is too low for a daily. I'm sure your gangster wheels don't help much either. Good luck with the trade

I may be interested in a set of H&R Sports. There was this tire place in Los Alamitos that I had been to, and I know they can get them and install. Let me know when and where you decide to purchase.

in theory wheel diameter shouldn't matter, as your wheel gets bigger your tires should get thinner to maintain the same overal diameter.

Not sure if you can get tires thin enough to maintain stock diameter with 20" though????

properly fitted wheels shouldn't affect ride height at all

he is using fatter tires thats why. using thinner tires compromise the smooothness and is easier to dent the rims.

Okay, I just ordered the H&R Sports from F1 Motorsports. I'm planning on having them installed next Tuesday. Was told that they will lower the car 1.3" all around, which doesn't seem quite accurate, but I know they won't be as low as the race ones.

By the way, I just reread this thread. When you say 1.3" F and 1.2" R drop, is this relative to the e90 ZSP or non ZSP package vehicles?
