Tanabe Lowering Springs...

The Tanabe Lowering Springs are on sale at
www.suprastore.com
These springs lower the car all around 2" which is exactly what i want.
Will i have camber issues in the rear with these springs?? If i do,..MUST i get camer links?? or can i go without them if the problem isnt that bad??

If it was me I would get a camber kit just to be safe. But you should also consider some new shocks as well.

nice price...so my question is ...if anyone is already using those springs...how well do they work? Is the 2in drop too much for everyday driving? and how well does it work with 17's? I don't want to get that bounce you get when you go over bumps and i would to scrap on any dips in the road...

Yes, but the tokico Spring and shock set is only for a 1.25 inch drop,...i would like 2" all around?? does anyone know a good spring and shock setup that would cost around $500 to $600??

Anything Tanabe makes will perform well, just look at their exhaust & coil overs. A 2" all around drop will be fine with a stock body, but if you plan on getting a body kit in the future, don't get one that is really low or you'll be scraping like a m0f0. You might need a camber kit for the front, but you'll be fine in the back.

I have those springs with kyb agxs and the ride is pretty good but I would suggest 18s the drop might be too much with 17s
