I did dropzone springs I believe. I'm at just under 2". I had problems with my dual exhaust hitting the rear axle so I had the pipes dumped just before the rear axle. Handles great but I miss the pipes out the rear.

Re: springs?

Just do what I did. I bought drop zone, and when you are in the Settling stage... usually the first 24 hours after installing some new springs it takes time for them to settle to actually having weight put on them. Anyways, during the settling stage, right after I installed them in the garage, I went to my weightroom and grabbed every weight I could get managing to grab 600 lbs of free weights and put 300 in the trunk, and 150 on a stack of towels on each fender with the hood propped up.

I gained a total of 2.5 and 2.75 inch drop and I absolutely LOVE my stance.

here is a site where you can get them shipped for under 150 to your door.

dropzone springs

How many miles do you have on them? Check rock auto, sometime they have killer deals. If you don't get CC plates you will be buying tires. I didn't and my new tires lasted about 3500 miles before I ruined em. I invest the money and do it right. If your shocks have some miles on em you'll just make em go that much quicker, if they are fairy new you should be good for a while.
