Body drop?

I am going to drop my car Tein has the S. Techs with a 1.4" drop and Eibach has anywhere from like 1.5" to 2.0". OK heres my dilema is that my car is at factory level and I know I will scrape if I go to low. My neighbor isn't good enough to park outside my yard.. So some feedback please what do I lower my car with either the Hotchkis with a 1.38" fr and a 1.78" rr for $214.00 or the Teins 1.4" for $150.00.. Thanks all your feedback is valued and important... confused

Then do that. Do what you want. Hotchkis isn't for you nor are the Eibach Sportlines.

yea it would look better that way. Stock rims with a lowered xcar doesnt look outstanding

Thanks: Creative people who aren't afraid to mod.
Random: I think big wings, racing graphics, etc are tacky.
