Re: 5th gen drop??

You could buy Tein Lowering springs for around 200 I believe or Eibach pro kit for around the same price. Koni Yellow and Ground Control Coilovers are another popular choice for our rides, a lil pricey. Im going with the F&F Type 1 coilovers Decent price & drop on the ride. theres plenty of people with Lowered rides, they'll chime in

Re: 5th gen drop??

i would get F&Fs or something that you could adjust this way if your not happy with how it was originally then you could make it lower or higher

might want to take him up on that for a first time drop. anything over 1.5" and you probably would have to get new struts as well. I dropped 1.5" both ends with Espelir ASDs and i think its perfect as its cheap, handles better, and you can still go over speed bumps in a straight line. and it looks hella cleaner!

Re: 5th gen drop??

Get adjustable!!! I have Tokico blues, and love em, but really wish I could go a little lower, with an option to bring them up if I move somewhere else. Either way though, I love my tokico blues. 1.25" drop front and rear, I think it looks great with my 17s. But trust me, once you go low, you'll want to go lower.

Re: 5th gen drop??

^ lol I was just about to say that. Don't listen to tazman100, I was. Lowered on my tein springs and drove like a mad man and never had a single problem, now I'm running some skunk 2 coilovers and I have them on the lowest setting and still have no problems.

Re: 5th gen drop??

this might sound crazy but...........i dont know how to use coilover's.but i heard alot of good things about like how you could adjust the car height.

but i'll go with the tokico blues
but still doing alot of research on those lowering spring and coilovers.
like it low,but still want to ride smooth lollllllll

Re: 5th gen drop??

If u want a smooth ride get springs or real coilovers, don't get coilover sleeves. The only reason y I have coilover sleeves is cause I wanted to be slammed

Re: 5th gen drop??

imo. ill go for body kit not a lowered car, and some interior upgrade... i dont need performance, i want the looks,

some changes:
*full body kit ( Xtreme rear bumper, TSC side skirts, Invader front bumper) :p
*carbon fiber hood
*type R spoiler
*Red painted caliper ( cos i dont wanna spend money which is too much to buy a real one)
*alpine double din navigation system, (dvd, cd, gps, etc.)
*alpine speaker, subwoofer, alpine amp type S... my car very loud and shaken
*HID headlights, 8000k & fog lights
*18 inch low profile rims comes with black & red color
*20% window tinted
*illuminum under light driver/passenger.. color blue :D
*greddy exhaust which is very loud.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST:
I got one of the hottest girls in my place.

Re: 5th gen drop??

OP: Just go with some coilovers, they are very simple to use.

function and form are good for the price, I personally use Tein SS and it's a smooth ride.

Your ignorance to relate to this thread in any manner is mind blowing.

And your trolling could use some work, ideally you would want to continue to lead us on vs posting and running. I can't even get a giggle out of your pathetic attempt...


However, you can make it up to us by posting up some pics to back up your above quoted statement.
