Yeah I'm wondering the same thing...as i'm looking into getting some 18's and a drop...but i'm very cautious about ground clearance at the same time...so i want something that will tuck those 18's nice but also won't compromise where i can drive much...maybe it's a tall order...

Anyone with pics of their celi's lowered would be appreciated...and if you know how much ground clearance you have...that would ge great! thumbsup

Eibach or Tein (in my opinion) would be the best to go for. They have a decent drop and they don't compromise ride quality as bad. I hate that "Bounce everywhere" feel!! thumbsdown Think about upgrading your shocks as well, not just the springs! thumbsup

I can't correct you, because I'm not sure. I dropped my car quite a bit, so I needed o buy different shocks. Stock ones made a funny noise after I lowered it. I left just enough clearance in the front so I wouldn't rub on bumps. Made for a smoother ride too. Stock shocks were really bumpy!
