Lowering springs
 
Hey guys, I know a few of you guys have done it and was wondering if you guys could post pics here of the drop you went with and how it feels over bumps and what not.

I went with the Ford Racing springs, they drop about an inch and feel like stock springs but handle way better.

I have the Handling Package, and I really like how the ride is and it is the perfect height for me. Lower would be nice, but it's my DD. On the verge of too tight, but not exactly there. I think that springs that were any stiffer wouldn't work for me in my car.

Given the fact that my struts are dampened differently, I don't know how they would feel on your car. They may be ok if you have the Sport Package, and might be too soft if you have the standard SE. Someone with a similar package would have to give you their input.[:)]

Are you using stock shocks?

Eibach Pro Kit on stock struts with Steeda rear sway. Little stiffer ride, but handles like it's on rails. Love it.

Love the wheels man. What's the size and make?

Thank you. They are O.Z. Superturismo 18's. Picked them up from Tire Rack.

Yep, stock shocks. The Pro-kit only advertises .8" drop, so stockers should be fine with it and should still give a decent service life.
