Be prepared for lots of issues at that height. The major one will be tire clearance issues the second will be lack of any suspension travel. Other issues will be the stress on wheel bearings and CV joints created by the awkward angles they were not designed to operate at. If you're not familiar and prepared to address these issues, you should not do it.

i dunno i dumped my ride and its fine, i guess it really depends on how u drive. oh taking out the fender liner helps with some rubbing, but if ur rolling 205s changing it to 195 would have less rubbing also.

hondas roll 3.5" with no problems as long as ur not beatin on the back roads. take your fender liners out and tuck them wheels. ball joints and such will get wear faster than stock setup, but i would replace them with the better, when they break
1.5 FRPP Drop. Not Enough, Sportlines soon!
