Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Lowering 84

You could always cut stock springs. A quick search revealed mugen made a set, and eibach made some lowering springs.

Also eBay returned some results, like "king springs" that lower 35mm.

Not a good idea. I believe the fronts (and maybe the rear as well) are progressive rate springs; cut them -- especially from the wrong end -- and you'll screw up the handling.

Exactly.
Like adding an H22 to the 3g, when you go messing with the delicate balance of the original design, you end up spending a lot of time n money trying to get back what you gave away to lose a little wheel gap.
And then you end up riding inside a basketball.

Do yourself a favor and buy some bigger tires if all you want to do is close some wheel gap

Re: Lowering 84

Cutting springs is a terrible idea, last thing you want is to bottom out a corner cos your spring couldn't hack it,

Your better off trying this lol
