Lowering Springs

I'm kind of new to the whole aftermarket suspension parts so I don't know that much about anything. I understand I can get new springs to lower my car; I was looking at the set from BMR for 1.2 inch lowering. Does anyone know if this is a good set? http://www.bmrsuspension.com/?page=p...productid=1050. Also thinking about getting a front lip spoiler you guys think that I'll have problems bottoming out with these?

Any help is much appreciated thank you guys

Can't speak for the BMR springs but I have the Pfadt 1.25 lowering springs and love 'em. The car sits how it should have been from the factory in the first place.

Those are great springs for the V6. Those and the Pfadt springs would be my first choices.

Clearance will be decreased, but you just have to be a little more patient over inclines and take them at angles. We have some of the deepest dips and driveway approaches in the country here in SLC due to our yearly runoff and there are plenty of low cars that make it around without issues.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler

Pfadt is our #1 choice for suspension upgrades, having said that BMR is a great company as well and we offer both products here. We have free shipping going on both and if you want we would to go over the difference between the two brands so you pick what works best for you!

Here's some pix of my 2SS with BMR 1" rear and 1.4" front. Before and after. You'll have no problems bottoming out unless you get air on launch day. Make sure you use a very low profile jack, follow the instructions, make the front strut location before removing.

I have Eibach and I scrape occasionally on a couple of driveways. I couldn't imagine having a lip too. All of my damage is to the bottom of the bumper well out of sight, but I'd be scared of it coming off.

Go for the lowering, but be careful. Hitting driveways at an angle become the new norm

I think you will be very happy with the BMR V6 lowering springs (SP052). These lowering springs offer a nice aggressive lowered stance without sacrificing too much ground clearance. Another bonus to these springs is that you will not have any issue getting alignment specs with the factory hardware. You won't have to worry about bottoming out at all but you will have to be a little more cautious with parking stops and curbs.

If there is any other questions we can help you out with just let us know.
