FK Coilovers need more LOW!!!

Hows it going guys?

I'm currently running on FK coilovers, that I had purchased from a member on the forum. Right now I have my coilovers on its lowest possible setting on the front, and yet its still not low enough for me.

Are there any alternatives for me to drop another 1/2"-1" on the front? Front mounting perches? Shorter springs? I cant seem to find anything on here. Thanks in advance!

This picture is a little old. It was since lowered another 1/2" or so on the front. Not bad, but I personally prefer it a lot lower. The car isnt driven through our Canadian winters, so I like to ride dirty in the summer lol.

How do you like the Highsports? I'm looking at purchasing them from ECS Tuning. My E90 is never tracked so I don't need anything like that - not to mention the price point on the FK's is right where I'm looking to spend.

depends on what youre looking for in a set of coils. I got them back then due to the inexpensive pricing and i just wanted to lower the car. two years later i wanted stiffer rates to avoid smashing the fenders against my wheel, so i modified my shocks and spring rates. a set of BC/megans/fk should work for what you want them to do on a budget.
