felixthecat [QUOTE=sam fisher;4571716]This is the strut kit im getting , http://www.shopcapaldiracing.com/col...hock-strut-kit

Now what different springs can I get , im interested in both low and not so low , just whatever will perform the best really? Also are there any other things I could do at the same time? Maybe some poly bushings?

That damper kit will take a 1.5'' lowering springs w/o issues. FRPP's has 1.5'' springs for the '06-'11 cars.

If you cant find those then, look to a 1.5" drop from a spring thats not super stiff.
They are I believe. But those springs only say .5 drop . Is that accurate

No use for you here if all you're going to say is leave it stock. That is the complete opposite of what this forum is here for.
The point is that there's nothing wrong with the stock springs and there's no point in wasting money replacing them when they work just fine. Just because there are aftermarket parts available doesn't automatically make them better than the stock parts and this is a prime example. Ta da!

Are you stock springs broken?

Why toss the money?

BlueFocusSE5 If you're stock coil springs aren't broken, just clean them, paint them and re-install. No need to replace.
