Haha. So true. Anyways, search around in the suspension section. Swift and Eibach are the most popular. Main difference is that Eibach generally drops lower. Swift is more of a moderate drop, I believe.

GTWorx all the way :rock:

I don't get the love for the "one size fits all" eibach's. only merit to why they're so popular is because they've been out since the early days (which is no surprise because they're made for every car out there)

and Swifts just look way too conservative to be worth the money. I honestly can't tell unless I see a before/after, and I hear more comments about how they're too soft/conservative for a handling upgrade

Well there's the Swift sport springs which is a mild drop, like 1" front and .6" rear, then there's the Spec-r version of it which is 1.2" front and 1" rear. I would recommend the spec-r's. Eibach is slightly lower than the spec-r springs.
H&R will be lower, i think like 1.4" drop up front and 1.3" rear. Tein will be around 1.4" drop as well, not sure about rears though.

I have seen negative reviews from the tanabe springs when compared to other brands like swift, h&r, eibach etc.

Maperformance.com is always a great place to order from, they have excellent customer service and from my experience ship fast.

well this car is strictly my DD. not TOO worried about the ride. i def want a noticable drop
If you want a noticeable drop then i think you'll be slightly disappointed with the Spec-r springs. Sure you will love it the first few weeks, then youll look at it and realize you still have plenty of wheel gap. Go H&R or Tein if you want less wheel gap. Its not gonna be that low to be honest. I'm dropped 2.5" all around and i can still manage to drive through most of Denver. Learn to drive SLOW and CAREFUL around ridiculous inclines and speed bumps, try taking super steep inclines sideways and youll be fine.
