i was always told get shocks AND springs or coilovers (wish I had gone with the coilovers)

i wouldnt risk doing the work of installing the springs (or having to pay someone to do it) and then have your shocks blow soon after

im on koni yellows and h&r sport springs and although my handling is amazing with the drop, i wish i went with different shocks, they are a bumpier ride than i would like

i had my body kit put on before i dropped it because i was waiting on rims, and when i look at the pictures of it w/out the drop they look like i'm about to go 4-wheelin' lol

oh and infinate - .......................................

i feel your pain!

coilovers and springs? that's not a good idea, unless you're talking about getting coilovers (which come with springs and shocks). read up in the suspension forum. there is MUCHO informacion in there.

Slicksivik, thats a huge drop, I have Neuspeed Sports and i think its pretty low, couldn't imaging going 3.25" on a car.

But Depotcivic, definatly drop that thing, makes the car look 100% better!
