Has Anyone Lowered Their Coupe?

Well, I lowered mine with a set of Eibach and I hate it....as soon as I get some money I'm switching back. I feel it's too low in the rear and makes my car looks like a ricer. I would also like to add that I don't care for the ride either.







I look forward to your comments!!

Not A Problem pnoye2...they're yours.

I haven't decide yet but there is a 80% chance I'll switch back.

Like you I have the two finger one finger gap and I do NOT like it. I have Bilsteins HD and Eibachs springs and 17" wheels. I'll have pics on Monday.

I take it you are aware Eibach discountinued the Pro Kit for our cars.

mine's about as low as yours, but the front is a hair lower than the rear is. I've got some cheap-o adjustable coils... I thought it'd make the car easier to get rid of, but as of now, no luck.

I agree with you. For some reason your car sits lower in the back. The car looked better with the original ride height. When you lower your car you feel every bump in the road and increases your chances of causing damage to your rims. Just my 2cents.
