2" is not even considered a drop lol :p

Get the same kit I did! I always hear that ebay springs arent the best if you use just the springs. Ive heard they are fine if you get lwoering struts and shocks as well. But of course, just ask anyone who has ebay springs. lol Thats the best way to find stuff out.
what did you order again? did you get them yet!?

No. :( I cheaped out on the shipping. I chose the 1 month long $35 option instead of the 2 week long $95 option. But it will be worth the wait when I get it!

Oh and yaaaay bmx bikes!

On our cars anything more than 2" drop is for looks not performance. Personally I think 2" max for a drop is fine. You get better looks, still have decent ride quality and performance(if done right).
