thats 1.2 inch drop? How does the rear look if you have the trunk loaded or one or 2 people riding in the back? I want to lower soon but I dont want it to look like its sagging or dragging if someone sits in the back

Yeah if i have people in the back with the larger tires u can hear it kinda scrap i feel like if i went lower id ruin the suspension. Only problem is with the larger tires it last longer but doesnt handle well but im hoping to get some hi-performance struts to handle better

did you just put lowering springs on it to lower it? im trying to decide if I want to do lowering springs and cheap svt shocks ($350ish), or go for a full setup ($1300ish), and Im trying to decide on how low. it looks real sharp though

Here is my new 08' - can't wait to put wheels on it, lower it and get some tint on it.
