It also helps you scrape your exhaust on the pavement when pulling in and out of sloped driveways I'd like to lower my car, but I seem to have clearance problems too often to justify the cool looks. Our exhausts hang fairly low as it is.

I'm somewhat interested if the price is right. I've got struts waiting for me to stop being lazy and a tax return check comming eventually.
I'm looking for a 1.5 to 2" drop, stiff ride, not real bumpy, just better handleing.

When i got my muffler installed ,I asked the exaust guy the set it as high as possible(for future lowering possibilities),so he loosened clamps pushed it up and held it there the his exaust lift stand and then tightedened it all up,I now have tons of clearance .,Im still waitng for a reply on the custom springs.

Im aiming for a 1 1/2 inch drop in an FE 2 to FE 3 spec,In between would be perfect,2" i think will be too much for most, if we stick to one size,I think it will be easier to bargain(less work for them) .

I think that the only way to go is the F41 spec that is the mose desireable spring option and also I would want the 2" drop,

what smelly have a 2" or 1 1/2 on his car
