I am deffinately thinking about lowering it. The roads around my place are really bad and I have to drive on gravel sometimes so I was thinking air bags. I'm not to sure right now

If you go with the Steeda springs, they only lower it .8 f+r, so it might not make that big of a difference on the dirt roads... idk

My Road Magnets ride really nice on some really, really rough roads around town. It's no Rolls Royce, but I like the ride quite a lot, and the handling and aesthetics are a major plus.

The drop was 1.625" all around but I can still take it through a car wash (woo, laziness!). These cars are massively high stock.

^ your focus looks really good with the 1.6 drop.

Deft, forget my old advice, and take Frinesi's haha

I'm happy with how mine sits because stock it's so much lower than my Grand Prix.

I didn't even know that someone made that big of a drop. I agree it would look better lower. I don't notice in pictures with the .8 inch drop most of the time.

I also tend to get stuck in the mud from time to time. I had my cobalt in mud to the door handles and had to have the road dug out to get me unstuck. I was on the highway at the time. They were doing roadworks and didn't have a detour posted. That's not a normal thing but it has happened.

Two cans wasn't enough for my liking but I could only find two. I'm not sure on the colour. The car is really dirty in the pic

In that case I'm not sure if 0.8 or 1.6 inches of drop would have made any difference!
