shocks and struts for a 2nd gen
 
i am currently running FFRp kit but i really wanna go lower in the front... the wheel cap in the front is terrible

what are my options besides going for coilovers?

get an omnikit?


was thinking about going to hr springs or eibach springs cuz they are a little lower then the Ffrp and i know you can run other springs on the kit

i found these...http://www.ebay.com/itm/KYB-4-STRUTS...134c12&vxp=mtr

I went with Eibach sportline for a short time then I wanted to go lower and just put on some coilovers on problem fixed.

This is how i am sitting right now

17 rims and 205/45/17 tires on ffrp kit
front is 25.5 inches with 2.75 inches of wheel grap
rear is 24 inches with 1.25 inches of wheel gap

would really like to lower the front at least another inch

Eibach sportline will do it

Baldurs390 01-21-2013 04:38 PM

That's the set up I used with no problem

Baldurs390 01-21-2013 04:48 PM

hmm well if they will fit i might as well grab a set :)

You should like it I did if not low enough for you but I think it will be I cut two deaf coils off the rear to make it level front and rear. I only did that after the spring settled in

See what you like first leaving the springs the way they are is real nice as well
