lowering~?~!?!?!

my baby is screaming to be lowered!!!!!!! i've been looking at the eibach pro kit but that's a weak drop.. only an inch... our cars have like 4 inch wheel gaps... if my car was a person, i'd be like running around with high water pants!!! hp, sprint, GL, neuspeed are all reletively the same price but they're nothing unless i install shocks with them cause our oem ones suck **** !!!!! so a nice lowering job will cost me at least a grand at least cause the koni's go for about 2 bills a shock!!!! companies need to get off their butts and need to start coming out with cheaper shocks!!!! sorry i just needed to vent....[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-frown.gif[/IMG]

Rebew1 is an unknown quantity at this point
For that much money why don't you go with a full coilover kit. That way you can adjust the height to what you want and have a nice set of shocks to boot!

Get the Ground Control Coil Overs. I got mine from modacar.com or was r-speed.com[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]
You can take a look at my ride here http://hondagallery.com/profile.php?id=1587 Make you get your shocks to or you will be in for a hell of a jumpy ride. I think I have about a good 2n a half inches. Speed Bumps and high driveways suck [IMG]i/expressions/moon.gif[/IMG]

i got a 2" drop front and back with my sprint springs... it looks nice and they ride it nice... (not as bumpy as coilovers). it left a gap with the stock wheels, but with some good 17"s it looks tiiight!
