If you're not wanting any clearance issues then go with the ACS Composite T4 Splitter. I personally have PFADT lowering springs and have no inclines in my town so am upgrading to a Stillen splitter eventually

I went with Hotchkis sport springs specifically designed for the convertible. 1" drop. I would not go any lower for a DD. My ride quality is good and it handles and brakes better.

Thanks for the advice, I did some research and I actually like the way that splitter works.

I think I decided Hotchkis and a splitter.

Sounds great! I would like to offer a kind word of advice though. Be very careful when installing it and IMHO make an extra effort to secure it somehow. Now for the reason I say these words: I have 2 friends from back home who both got the splitter. Friend 1 has had zero problems and is a bit "ridiculous" of a driver. Friend 2 had (notice I said HAD) no problems until his lead foot got the better of him, and decided to go 100+mph down the highway !RIP! tore his splitter right off and broke it into 6 pieces. Needless to say, be smart with the installation and you will be fine!

Wow, that's good to know. I'll be taking it to my body shop and make sure they put it on properly and secure.
