i believe to lowest this side of coilovers is the sport cup kit from H&R. 2.6 inch drop on the front and 2.5 on the back.. and it settles after a couple months.. it's low

What are you trying to say fool? J/K Seriously, I have the Intrax springs and they are great! The spring rate is higher than any other aftermarket spring (Except coilovers), and they still ride well. I have about 1/2" fender gap in the front and about a 1" fender gap in the rear.

Que tipo de suspension traes ahora? Y dime que paso finalmente con el clutch? I forgot to mention that my SVT with the Intrax springs handles amazing, although I have other aftermarket suspension parts. If you can't get Intrax, get the H&R's like previously mentioned.
