Thanks, but 2.1inches is a little more than I want to drop it. I would like a more aggressive stance but not a tucked look. I have 17" wheels now and plan on getting 17" xxr 522's. I was thinking maybe Neuspeed sport or tein s tech.

A 55/40 kit wont give you tuck,

Springs are just what you need then. I'd be a little weary about dropping it that much on stock shocks.

I have vogtland 50mm springs (2 inches) & bilstein shocks.

But you should probably be fine for the most part.

I attached a pic of my car.

Coils man

Even is the springs get you the lowness you want

You still need shocks and springs

That puts you in the price range for a good set of coils

FK coils are on sale at NGP for $450 shipped

$50 cheaper then ecstuning, just a small FYI

ok, but how is the ride on the FK. And will these only last for a little bit then have to buy them again. I realize these are cheap as far as goes witth coils and not planning on putting a grand into the suspension.
