Believe me, on a 94-98 you dont' want a 2" drop man. Take a look at this.
This was actually with Steeda rear springs, and Jamex 2" drop front springs with 2 sets of Kenny brown spacers under them to raise it back up close to 1/2 and inch, so say 1.5 inch drop in front, 1.25 in the back, like the rake?

I want to see if I can find you a pic with the Jamex 2" drop still on it all the way round. Oh man, too old, I dont' think it was even lowered then, I think this is still with the stock springs etc. Looks lowered though, huh? 235/60/15 tires.

OK that last one is about as good as I can find for now! That is definitely with a 2" drop, click on it and compare it to the one above it, its still with the same 15" tires and rim, but look at how its sitting now, that is how low it was. This chin spoiler wound up getting ruined from getting hit on so many things it was so low to the ground, I have hit the bottom of the front of my car on high spots in the road at 60 mph, it could NOT cross a speed bump with out a sharp angle and not drag, and the pinion scrubber wore out from rubbing all the time.

thats about what i want... i can work around the car being lowered. Ill just take steep inclines at an angle etc. i love the look of the wheels being almost even with the wells on a pre 99... it just looks badass. Also, arent 15" tires on a 60mm sidwall the same as 17"ers on a 45mm sidewall???

No, actually Mike I think the 235/60s were just a little bit taller than stock, but not by much, probably 1/2" or so. I was trying to find one with it lowered 2" with the bullitts, but I didn't find one, I know I have one in there somewhere.

Sorry, I sold those to that Bolstik Filipino kid, along with the spacers and the tokico shocks, he said his parents threw the shocks and spacers away cleaning out the garage, thought they were junk. sheesh, almost new shocks. I dont know if I believe it, I am always seeing him selling something all the time, I think he buys and sells a lot.

Then that mixed set with the H&R fronts might be your ticket, he only wants 125 for them, H&R are good springs, would give you the drop you want too I think.

I shipped that stuff to that guy and it took a big chunk of what I got, and I shipped it parcel post! close to 30 dollars shipping with the springs, spacers and two shocks I think it was, might have been a little over 30.

Yeah, I hadn't noticed that he was in Hawaii. If those are 03 cobra springs the rear ones wouldn't fit your car anyhow. You saw the front pair of Kenny Browns for 50 bucks?

In case you're still wondering, my car is lowered 2" all around w/ 17" wheels, that's pretty much what you'd be lookin at. The springs I used are DropZone.
Here's a link to a place where you can get em for $115.00
