Which springs to get?
Hi guys, I was wondering which springs would lower my car noticably. The thing is I don't want to lower it too much to the point that I need a camber correction kit. Which ones should I get? Thanks

You only need a cambe kit if you slam the rear, but since you don't wanna drop it that much, you wont that problem.

There's a lot of options, all ranging from a 1-4" drop, it depends how low you wanna go & how much you wanna spend. Eibach/TRD are the most popular. Read the vendor reviews & it'll tell you how people rate their springs.

Hotchkis wont drop it that much, so you don't need a camber link. If the place that does the alignment tells you that you need one, tell them that the rear camber links are adjustabe grin

Get Tanabe it looks nice. Specially if you have/gonna get 18" rims. Here is mine with 18" with Tanabe 2" drop all around. Good luck.
