Hotchkis TVS stages 1-3
Which of these packages will be better for daily driving? I was leaning toward the stage 2 kit, but I don't know how much lower my car will be. Can enayone tell me how much lower my car will be with each kit?

Thanks.


My car is gunna be 10x faster than yours...haha... I'm gunna buy like 10
of those speedchips! I figure if 1 gets me 20hp then 10 will get me 200hp!

they'll all be the same height, but each package adds more "stuff"... They keep adding the sway bars, the strut bars, camber links, springs, etc...

Hotchkis TVS packages rock, Stage 2 is definately good for the Occasional Racer/Daily Driver... Personally I'm going all out and going for the stage 3 for the PERFECT ride. My friend has the kit on his GTS and it's as smooth as butter sitting in his car, I rarely feel speed bumps!

Good Choice on Suspension tho, #1 thumbsup

Stage 2, but he has the Hotchkis shocks and struts on order which will basically make his kit a stage 3

If I do get the stage 2 what are some good shocks I can get? I would hate to lower the car on the OEM shocks.
