Seminoles Eibach Sportline... 1.5" drop

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._rd_i=15684181

These are cheap but only .75" drop

TheGlassMaker Megans are the cheapest. But they only give a 2" drop. You won't get lower than 2.5 on any coils alone. You'll have to with coilovers to go lower. KSports go the lowest.

+1 to this. Don't screw up your car just so you can look like a low riding ricer.

You see those POS Hondas that are slammed to the ground? The suspension geometry is shot to hell, cars handle like shit riding on bumpstops, tires rubbing on wheel wells, and scraping over every pebble, driveway, etc.

Theres a reason why companies like H&R, Eibach, Steeda, etc only go so low.

I think eibach are the cheapest. Check out their website. You may also need to pay for an alignment once those are installed.
