How low can i drop Veilside EC-1 kit?
i got a 2k GTS and i want the Veilside original kit. they said it drops the car 1.5" at its lowest point on the kit. my question is 2 things. how far should i drop it and what brand/model should i get. my inputs are---> i am lowering it mainly for looks little for sport so stiff stiff is no thanx. but i want to drop it as low as possible and still be able to go over rairroad tracks without scraping .i can slow down to 5mph for them but i don't wanna bottom out. other than that i hope it looks hot thumbsup

it really depends on the road conditions you have to go thru in your area. if you dont want to be scraping all over the place then i would suggest the TRD springs, an inch is the lowest you can go but youll still encounter minor scrapings(like me grin ) anything lower would be murder on your kit so your choices would be either stock,an inch drop or you can go with adjustable coilovers so these 3 are your options if you want to keep your authentic veilside in shape

btw it would also help if your rolling on 18"
