1 1/4 inch drop
Any one w/ this can you post pics? also I am wondering because my back is higher then the front. To make it even do I need to drop the back lower or would that just fuck my car up?
confused

I have 1.25" drop. Tokico shocks and struts,and springs, it will level out your ride. I have 17" rims also...I am happy with the drop, did it 4 months ago. Heres a pic like you asked for

the rear needs to be dropped lower to even out the entire car

an inch and a quarter drop isn't that big.

true dat, but good if you have crappy roads (like I do here) and have to dodge Amish-buggy-horse-turds plus a gravel driveway. The tokico combo did level out the ride heigth alot. It just doesn't get you way down there. Handling improved noticeably. Not like adding sways, etc.. but noticeably better.

the sportline is a big drop dude...
limits you on body kit selections, so you make the choice..and the drop is awesome thumbsup
personally, i went with a drop on my wrx before a body kit selection...i didn't wanna have all that gap, so i can just get a small lip kit thumbsup
