I freakin need to drop my car!
Ive waited too long. This is happening as soon as winter is over. I still cant decide what to use. I dont want to buy agx, i dont think i really need anything adjustable, Im just going mainly for looks and ride quality. But for the springs, tanabe 1.5", Tein S, or Hotchkis? Ive read all the reviews, which doesnt help me make a decision...


Where did my sig go? help me find it..........

Tein S-Tech thumbsup i dunno if green will work for you, as it doesnt for me, but its better than red.

which springs are yellow or blue that provides a 1.4/1.5 inch drop? confused

i really dont care about color, they wont be seen. If i cared about color i wouldnt consider tanabe, I need to know which ones drop the best for Iowa or midwest weather.
Tein claims 1.4
Tanabe claims 1.5
Hotchkis--who the hell really knows.
TRD and Eibach pros are like 1.1
Sportlines are pretty low, but keep in mind i dont mind to get an alignment, i just dont want to buy any camber links, so Im keeping away from plus 2 inches.
So far the first 3 i named are the top choice. I want to do the whole thing including alignment for under 500 bucks and I need struts too!

Hotchkis handles the best, that's pretty much what everyone agrees on.

if your want a great drop go with tein s. tech. Tein is known for their great suspension system..I personally go with the TEIN SS coilovers.
