    I've already got my shocks (KYB-AGX)

    I'm just stuck on deciding springs...

    I'm looking into either GoldLine (1.75'' F/R)
    or B&G (1.75'' F/R)

    the H&R springs are nice, but I want just a LIIITTTLLLEE more drop than what they give me.

    Eibachs are out of the question..so are HKS..


    here's a picture; thoughts, questions, comments, racial slurs?



    car will probably stay on the stock 15's until summer. :noes:


    (I won't be going bigger than a 17...I think...)

    Itll look fine, my 2003 Acura 3.2 Cl Type S is lowered 1.75/1.5 with h&r sports but the wheel gap from the start and ride height was already high

    I'm putting a H&R cupkit on my C230 and it should lower it abvout 1.6, and mine sits lower than yours, so I would not worry about it.

    1.75 is nothing, and if you get 17s, its gonna look higher again.

    yeah right then you stalk me
    1.75 should effectively lower it right out of the useable part of the arc. can you say bumpsteer?
