Mine is the ZX3B kit. I haven't logged many miles on it yet but so far so good.

I have the ZX3B kit, got about 40K miles on it so far. I do wish the springs were stiffer though.

that's what i'm looking for. I don't need a luxury car ride. I want it more on the stiff side.

Hey guys, I'm really sold on this kit from the sound of it. I like the look and performance of a lowered car, but hate the headaches that can arise from rubbing, alignment issues, etc.

Just curious on the spring rate difference to stock. Also wondering how this kit compares to the ST suspension (I have a family member with an ST)

Does this ship with detailed instructions? I know I have a buddy or 2 that would help, just want to know if I need to find specifics online.

I'll order from Tousley if my local dealer cannot get it in or not as discounted

So how is clearance? Im about sold on this, problem is I installed a larger tire, 205/6015 that fills out nice but I only got about 2 inches maybe a tad more wheel gap in the front

I have zero rubbing issues with mine. Running 215/45/17 tire. I did get my car aligned and was shocked more that how far the toe was off. Camber was pretty much in spec. It does not really ride all that bad either. If you want a nice ride go buy a luxury car.
