Anyone dropped their LW Sport Sedan?

Wanna drop my sedan, and get new rims for it.. Just wondering who has done what. And have any pics from different angles to show?

Nice, How far did you drop it? I love the car, but I just hate how the rear sits up!

I am definitely gonna go with 18" rims, so just need to decide what is a decent drop?

Not mine mate Albarry's

I'm not sure his exact lows sorry. He started with the Ford Racing springs but wanted lower and is now on Vmaxx coils.

if you are cutting dead coils it is perfectly fine as they do nothing anyways... hence dead.

Alby. Did you cut off a coil from the top or bottom?
Lately I've been thinking of cutting a half coil or so on the rear of my Sportlines as sometimes it looks like its sitting a tad higher than the front
