Best 2012 v6 Drop Springs?6

Ive been looking to lower my ride and i wanted to add drop springs ecause they arent to expensive, and will add a nice look. I just dont know which ones to go with if some of you could show me some pictures of how they made your car look and how it feels that would be greatly appreciated. Also what is the ease of installation?

Installation is not too difficult, as long as you're not freaked out by springs under tension. Use a good spring compressor and be careful. Air tools help a lot.

Make sure to have arrangements for an alignment after you are done.

Just did springs on my 2010 a few weekends ago. A 2nd set of hands can be really helpful so I'd have someone available to help if you need it, but honestly the install was not bad. Wish I had done it a long time ago.

I don't know about the 2012+ models, but on my 2010 we didn't even need a spring compressor. Removing the final nut from the top of the struts only resulted in a little pop off from the was barely compressed.

We also used air tools...big help.
