Drop it like its hot!
What do you guys think would be a good drop to make the car look good plus not worry about every small bump on the road?

Hotchkis springs lower the car 1 3/8 in the front and 1 7/8 in the rear.

Different companies have different drops. I just assumed you knew how much the Hotchkis drop was.

it actualy depends on your car...

mine came with stock suspension that was lower than most people's stock suspension.

I then dropped my car using full TRD shocks/struts and springs and it brought my car down by about 2 inches...

Isaac, why did your car come lower than usual? Defected or something?

Isaac is right. I sorta jumped the gun. It depends on your ride and environment/roads. Just look at lowering springs and see how much they will drop your ride, then go to your car and measure how low it will put you.

How much did the whole suspension run you?

Another solution would be getting coilovers. That way you can adjust the ride height to where you want it and if you get a full coilover setup, like the Teins, you can adjust the dampening for a softer to stiffer ride. If your thinking about Teins i would recommend staying away from the HA's as they are stiff as hell for everyday use (sort of regreting the HA's should of went with the SS's frown)

People say that when lowering the car the two back wheels get pushed out more? (if you look from the back of the car it seems like the wheels are pushed out)Is that true? does that hurt the car or wheels?

No it doesnt hurt it but a wise man would get an alignment done after lowering his ride though.
