I have BMR's 1.4'' drop all around, It sits nice and I've never had a problem, well other than steep roads and speed bumps lol but hey thats the low life. A pair of sway bars would be a nice mod along with the springs you choose also.

Thats why I stuck with 1" drop.Few clearance issues, good ride and shocks last longer.Good appearance to for me to.

And I heard Koni has shocks in developement

i hope you're right. i cant really fit the coilovers in the ol' budget right now. so some Koni's would be good.

That would be great and I hope it comes to fruition soon. I heard the same things about 3 years ago though and I still haven't seen them. However, I have held a set of Konis for the Scion FRS and that car has been out less than a year.
