i have more pics so if you want them i can send them but they are of the same type of stuff i plan on buying the sway bars sometime soon also. they just make a good product. some of the other companies i considered when buying the coilovers didnt have anything available for the 3 at the time but the other alternative which i still think is a great set up and told someone this on another post just recently was this: try and see if H&R will sell you the same springs i have which is the race version not the sport version and then buy koni's best shocks that to me is the best set up. both very stiff and the shocks are adjustable.

thanks

i have always thought h&r made a sweet product. I have used their springs and sway bars on other cars but this is the first time i have considered coil overs.

then of course a big difference in understeer and diving and squating and also body roll. not that it was bad from the start buy now that i have the coilovers its been lessened. Basically a good combo between racing spring and shock to match.

Man, that IS a nice drop. :D Good job! Btw, I hate you. You can set it to whatever you want, well within reason.

i borke the fogs and never got another set (yet). yes i love the adjustability and after i get my new tires and camber adjustment kit i will raise the car about a half an in. the big drop is affecting my camber and the joints on the front suspension. my camber is -2 up front and -3 in the back i need to adjust them about a degree each because its casuing me some problems. maybe new wheels would help raise the car a lil.. any feedback?

wheels don't support the frame. with a drop like that, bigger wheels will just degrade ride quality and possibly increase understeer.

as you've just experienced, a huge drop puts a lot of stress on components you can't see: bushings, joints, etc. if you raise the ride height a little and get a factory alignment, you'll be good to go.
