Lowering kits out there?

Looking for the badass look as well as the handling, what y'all like out there?

Just lowered mine with ksport springs. 2" in rear and 1.5" in front. Corners like a champ and the rest of the suspension is still stock

A bad *** look would be coilovers. All other lowering springs drop them but they still leave a gap. I think there's a couple that lower it over 2'

Thanx guys! I love how low the first car is in the thread, but coil overs? How does that make a better difference than springs?

What's the safest amount to drop on springs? I have drop zone 2" drop springs but wanna cut a coil or so off, when my cars on a lift and suspension is at full travel they already seem loose in there, I don't wanna hit a pot hole and drop a spring out lol

They are a better ride, better handling and you are able to lower or raise them to you're liking

Nice, well considering I've never done coil springs I think I will take it to a reputable lowering shop, I wanna make sure it's done right so I never have to fix it and it'll look PERFECT
