i want to have funner times! allow me to thread jack momentarily:
im interested in either progress (1.3F, 1.3R) or skunk2 (1.5F, 1.3R) lowering springs. getting springs first, shocks later. and i care more about handle improvement over appearance. im leaning towards skunk2. any opinions?
sportlines seem too low for me, and i dont like the drop difference with the Teins. and no pro-kit because i want progressive springs.
thanks for the opinions so far. Funny thing happened today, i went to a performance shop near my house and the guy there said the drop on the S-techs where 2 in the front and 1.5 in the rear for the sedan. I told him thats for the hatch drop because thats what it said on their website. then i ask him about the Eibach sportlines and he says the drop is 1.8 in the front and 1.6 in the back and i thought it was 1.8 all around. So either this guy got the wrong catalogs or the websites are wrong so can any help me with this problem.
I was looking at Sportlines but decided to go with the S-techs. After reading many comments on the forums, I found that the S-techs handle better. I just installed mine on Friday and am extremely happy. Here is a picture....
S-techs are bomb u wont regret installing them. I just got mine on yesterday at 2:30am and I was testing them out on the open road. It seems like you get a lot more response when turning, better grip on the road (a LOT less slipping) and I even took some fast turns accelerating and hardly any squeaking from tires. It looks REALLY nice too might I add
