Not too bad. We have a compression tool and have a lift we are using ,but you dont have to have a lift.

Thanks for sharing... That stance looks the way it should from the factory.

How does the ride quality compare to stock? A little stiffer or hardly noticeable?

The ride is a bit stiffer ,but feels so much better planted. The car over steers so I think this should help balance.

Still rides really well !

They will probably drop a little more after a few hundred miles. It looks good though and will look even better after it finishes settlling.

Same as my other post regarding lowering:

Looks cool...Does it take you half an hour to get into a parking lot now? Im also curious about the handling. I have found that when under hard cornering and hitting a little dip or bump in the road unsettles the stock suspension in the car pretty badly..I would think this would make you rebound like you were on a pogo stick.

from Pfadt - 1 to 1.25 inches of drop for the correct relation between looks and proper function. ran $340

It drives really well and takes speed bumps fine. Might worry about parking with curb height.

Did some hard cornering today where the car would normally push the front tire into a slide and now it grips instead. You almost start to see a bit of oversteer ,but very controllable. Overall the car is much "flatter" into the corners and stays "flatter" under hard braking and fast acceleration. No harshness at all and under normal driving conditions only slightly tighter ride which I prefer.
