I am curious how low can i drop my 2006 3 hatch on 17x7 in wheels with the stock 205/50-r17 tires??? I'm a little new to this.......my old truck had airride and we cut whatever we needed to make it lay out. I would like to keep this a daily driver. I've seet the sportline kit from Eibach which is an approxomate 1.8in front and rear.

Any help is much needed.

The only problem with a bagged car in the winter in MN when it drops to 20 below.........(which really bites) is that the valves freeze. and whether they freeze open or shut.....both are not good.....at least that's the problem I had with my old truck.
