Lower spring/1le strut and shock vs..

i want to change the height of my ride, which of these two would be the best choice? 1le shocks/strut with pedders spring or something like BC or Megan coilover for street application ?

For a simple street application I would say Coilovers would be overkill unless you are looking for a specific ride height and need the adjustability. How low are you trying to go? Are you doing this simply from a looks aspect?

1" drop and the shocks would be fine. Anything lower and go coilovers as the shock lifespan and performance will be compromised just like with the SS units.

Only 1" drop, for the look and little better handling !!

Yeah if you only need to drop the car 1" I would just go for a set of Hotchkis springs and call it a day! Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

coilovers are better than springs in every way except your wallet.

We currently have a great set of springs that will lower the vehicle 1 inch in the front and 1 1/4 inches in the rear for a more level ride height.

They will also improve vehicle stance and handling.

Let me know if I can help answer any questions for you?

Best Regards,

TJ
