yes my bumper is lower than usuall, its actually about 1.5 - 2 inches lower than stock bumper. getting 18s might lift the rid a bit, but im not too sure.

dampers = struts.

and what do you mean by "im not planning on gettin a kit. so hopefully it will still be low enough just stock."?

what part of WI. I am in Chippewa by Eau Claire. You can lower it yourself in the corse of a day. I did my wagon, it isnt that hard. A kit you can get from Steve, for 125.00.

^^^That's not all you stickied yesterday...

I would check places. One shop wanted 400 to paint my old rear spoiler on my sedan.

i meant no body kit.

my list of things to do to my zx3 are:
tint back windows 35%
tint front windows 40%
get some 18" rims on some 215/35 tires
get a full paint job (one color)
get some tail lights
get some headlights
lower it

anyone have an estimate on how much this would all cost?


im not gettin a body kit as of right now. but i would like to do all of these things in the future. i just am not sure if i want to get it lowered.. because that is going to be fairly expensive and it isnt really going to improve the look that much. i just want to know if u guys think it will be worth it to get it lowered about 1.5" because it will look sky high off the ground, or if u think that it will look okay if i keep it the way it is..?

thanks for everyones help so far..!

tint like 200. rims and tires depends on what kind u get. paint job. havent really looked much but ive heard its rather expensive. might find some projectors and tail lights for a little over 100 each. and the drop if u go with the one focus_SWT mentioned would obviously be 125. so ur looking at over 500 without the wheels and paint. the latter are probably going to be the most costly.
