View Full Version : too low?

ok im just about to order my springs, i think ill end up going pro-kits, but i was also looking at the sportlines, im running on the stock 16 inch rims. Heres the problem...will the sportlines drop it too low considering my convertible is heavier?
also any other spring suggestions are welcome

Besides the springs' lowering factor, you should also consider the spring rate. It all depends on what you want to do with the car. Performance-wise, I believe the Prokit is better than the Sportsline.

If you chose the ProKit, and find it still not lowered enough, I think upper-mounts would lower the car some more.

That's all I know, I'm not the suspension expert here. Hope that helps! http://www.freshalloy.com/

EDIT: To answer your question, no I don't think the ProKit would be too low. Not at all. The actual drop usualy is about 1,5". Even if it lowers your car 2", that's still very "streetable".

if i were u bro..i would order the h&r springs instead of the pro kit. ive had them both and the h&r has a smoother ride to it than the eibachs.i am going sportline right now cause i'm gonna get 18s but i'm gonna change my shocks all around
