Ok so I have been reading for over an hour and I can't figure this out. How the hell do you guys get your cars so low? All the springs I have found have no more than a 2" drop, and thats not alot. Are you cutting the springs or what...Let me tell you what I have and maybe you can help me cause I have at least a 3 to 4 inch gap between tire and fender. Maybe the spring rate is to stiff. But it came with the ebay coilovers.

KYB AGX set on 7/6
Ebay coilovers almost bottomed out
205/40/16 wheels and tires

All info would be appreciated.

Some coilovers only allow a certain amount of ride height adjustability.

The Ebaycoilovers are the culprit. If you want to go lower, you will need to get a better coilover setup. Maybe not fully adjustables, but Tein Basic w/NB upper mounts or keep you AGX and get some Ground Controls w/NB uppermounts.

Just get ISCracing top mounts in the 2inch version and you will be slammed for sure plus you will have hella suspension travel. I have this setup with KYB agx and eibach springs(uncut) and now I scrape my exhaust on small bums in the road.

In all honesty, a two inch drop IS a lot for just a spring/shock combo. Combined with FCM modified upper shock mounts you're looking at a respectable amount of slammage.

the only concern with the isc mounts is that your bumpstops become useless as you'll bottom out the suspension on the chasis before the bumpstops can do anything. it was a scary enough thought for me to sell mine unused (those are my pics) and buy some Tein Flex instead. I just won't be eating for a while.......
