I am wanting to lower my car. I am not wanting anything major where i will be scraping across the ground. I would just like it to be low. I am looking for springs, not coilovers. Any suggestions? Any pics of some lowered and how much it is lowered would be very helpful.

Thanks

Im running Eibach ProKit springs and they give me another 3/4 inch, maybe a little more, over stock. Theyre settled in now and i am by no means scraping the ground. All i wanted was a to cover some of the wheel gap. They are good springs but Im sure people out there will tell you there are better springs.

Anyway, heres how my car looks with the ProKits:

My shocks are getting a little tired. So that might be why mine looks a tad lower. But from the looks of your picture I think we are sitting at about the same height. And p.s. I love those wheels. They fit the look of your car perfectly.

Thank you. Both of your cars look
Really good. Do you know how much of a drop it was?

Mine are lowered, IIRC, 1/2 to 3/4 inch over stock. They're the KW springs.

Before and after pics:





Unfortunately, it doesn't look much different because I have 225/45 tires in the before pic and the stock 215/45 sized tires in the after pic. Nice subtle difference though.

I have the FRPP kit in my car. Its at a nice height right now, and handles great. No pic sorry. If i am remembering correctly its a .75 inch drop.
