yes, it really drops that low. it really levels the car out, unlike a lot of other suspension setups (unless you go with coilovers). here's a few more for you....





i wish i had some closer pictures, to show you how low it drops, and how it practically eliminates any wheel well gap you have. but hopefully this works for now.

I still don't know how you managed to drop almost 3 inches with 18's and don't rub.

i do, on hard cornering, and dips in the road. but i can turn lock-to-lock with no rub, and typical roads are no problem. you mainly notice the rub in the front. sit 2 adults in the rear, though, and you'll notice it back there too.

so it's just a matter of paying a bit more attention to the road then, that's not too bad.

mine are 42mm offset, and I know if I went down 3 inches I'd rub like a mother. This always confuses me anyways. I guess its kind of a look and see kind of deal.
