Looks great! IMO the 1" drop is the perfect stance for the car. I drove down to BMC in West Palm today and bought the same spring kit. Hoping the dealer will have it done by next week.

What's up fellow 10/26er? You seem to be as patient as I am. I have tint, springs, subthump, exhaust already on and programmer & air box enroute

Love this car, bro.

Not to sound dumb but why lower the car an inch or even some I see a half inch?

What is the reason to do that?

Im going with 305's on 20x11.5's out back and the wider tire makes the well gap much more noticeable than w/the factory 275's.....so 1" Eibach springs are being installed at my dealer this week. Just 1" will make a big difference in the appearance not to mention improved handling. Sway bars are next.

Thanx for the reply, I had no idea why people do only an inch

I read that they were. If the Sportlines hold true from previous cars, they will be considerably stiffer and ride quality will suffer. For the price, it's hard to beat the Eibachs. Pfadt springs are roughly $100 more and will go down about 1.25in.

The OP's car does look to sit just about right. Any higher wouldn't be worth the price. A tad lower would look good too though.

That is why we at Pfadt chose the 1.25" drop. The 1" just didn't seem like quite enough. I think that the drop springs on these cars are almost a requirement to get them looking correct.

Looks perfect. I cant stand the look of the car sitting on the ground, not to mention actually driving a car that low and having to watch every bump in the road or curb or driveway you have to negotiate. Give it alittle time and they will settle a tick more.
