Chase ... I will be installing my new BMR Split Drop springs next weekend. Before I do that, I have a question. I have read a lot about the stock shocks not being able to handle anything over a 1" drop (at least not for very long). Since I am dropping 1.4" in the front, should I also be looking at replacing the shocks at the same time? Any recommendations? This is a DD car and won't see the track.

I have also seen recommendations for changing the lower control arm and potentially, a relocation bracket. Anything to this?

Thanks

We have a ton of customer that have the BMR split drop lowering springs or the BMR 1.4" lowering springs installed on their car and are happy with them and have had no issues. From all the testing we have done we have found that a 1.4" drop is really the limit you want to go with factory struts/shocks and anything beyond that is too low for the shock to control and decreases the lifespan of the shock significantly. Since their are not really any aftermarket options (at least for the time being) for struts/shocks on these cars you are limited in what you can do. If you want to go any lower than the 1.4" lowering springs we recommend going with coil-overs which are more designed for that.

Not a problem, the car definitely has a much more aggresive stance that s for sure.

If there is anything else we can help you out with let us know.

You can run our BMR 1.4" front lowering springs (SP023) and our BMR V6 specific 1.2" rear lowering springs (SP054) which will be more or split drop than our regular V6 lowering springs. We have actually done this combination of lowering springs a few times already and the customer was very happy with the stance and performance of their vehicle.

For any v6 guys I've got the 1.4/1.2 drop and it's quite impressive, does still have a bit of a raked look and gets rid of a decent amount of wheel gap
