just lowered

Hey guys i just got done lowering my car, eibach sway bars, apex springs, kyb AGX shocks, and the thing rides ruff, ruffer than an Lancer EVO, but hey it handles pretty good, the shocks are set at 3 in front, 4 in back and it's a pretty good ride.
well later
daniel

hehe you don't like the ruffness?? 18" rims will make the ride rough too.. so combine that with stiff shocks and springs and hell, you gotta a pretty firm ride..

Adjust the shocks/struts a little softer and it should help...

How do you like the apex springs? Are they stiff or soft or what
