Re: I finally dropped my Prelude

Is that lowest you can go on those F&F type 1's? and are you using stock tophats or tophats that came with the suspension?

Re: I finally dropped my Prelude

The Form and Functions come with everything, you dont use any stock components. They do go lower but with my wheel / tire combo I cant go any lower without scrubbing.

Looks good , what size are those tires?
I'm guessing around 215/45R17

Just wondering as those are the same wheels I am trying to get and I know that I have to stay in the 45 profile range to keep my speedo calibrated cause now I'm running a 205/55R16 a bit meaty but man what a ride nice and smooth but the speedo is dead on.

I like the look of the wheel to wheel well clearance I wouldn't go any lower myself even if you could without rubbing. Looks great.

Just an idea but throw a lip all the way around, it will appear even lower.

I'm still saving for the Mugen replica front, sides and rear.

Thanks, I agree, I love the stance. You are right on the money, they are 215/45ZR17.

great now all I need to know is if Michelin makes the Primacy MXV4 in a 215/45R17. I absolutely love these tires, best I ever had.

About how many more notches do you have left before you max out on your drop?

Re: I finally dropped my Prelude

I'd leave it, as much more and you'll cut tires like crazy... I would say any lower and your looking at camber correction.

Re: I finally dropped my Prelude

Looks really good.

And for the record Rob, I went from 215/45s to 215/40s and was much happier. They weren't enough loss of sidewall to really affect the driveability of it but the slight loss of sidewall was very appearant in the fender clearance. Better turning radius under compression and make the wheel seem bigger will still nicely filling the fender. I belive my members ride page has both. 45s on silver wheels 40s on black

It will go much lower in the back for some reason but the front only has about another inch of adjustment without touching the preload. I was really happy with the look and the ride quality.

The ride is great, much better than the worn out stock shocks I was riding on. Its much better than I expected.

I think it is different for everyone, I dont really like the super slammed feel, it looks cool but drives bad. I like the tastefully low look and feel.
