i live in maine so i dont know how much of a drop is too much. i looked at the tien springs that would bring it down like an inch and a half, but would two inches be too much with 17s on the often sucky roads up here?

depends on what size tires allot of peope ride with 17 and 2 inch drop I gurantee your road isn't worse than mine either I don't even have gravel it is a old farmers path that they slung rocks on to drive I say go as low as you want but learn to drive acordingly as you will scrape on stuff you didn't before

i'm stationed in Missouri and the roads out here suck worse than any place i've been in my car, which is all over the place, and i have a two inch drop with 17's and the only thing i have to worry about is the entrance of driveways and a lot of parking lots. but my body kit does sit about 3 1/2 inches off the ground

^ if you had my body kit on you car it would get shattered probably the first day. on my car it sits about 3 inches off the ground and i scrape and bump stuff all of the time and on your car it would sit about 2 1/2 inches
