Need help with springs.

As for now I need to close the gap between my wheel well and tires a little. Later on down the road I plan on a whole suspension package but Right now I just want to pick up some lowering springs that I do not need CC plates for. All I wanna do is drop some springs on it and align it. Any ideas? I'm thinking at least 1.5 in drop??

If ur lowering 1.5 in then ur pretty much gonna need CC plus.... Trust me it's better to just do the whole suspension all at once with new shocks/struts instead of tearing it all apart again.. If u just do springs it's going to wind up f**king something up

if i can find shocks/struts cheap enough I will, what are some good CC Plates to get? Im not going to be driving her a whole lot this summer. So i have some time. but also at the moment i do have some money to spend but not a whole lot. I would love to go ahead and do my whole suspension like i want. But i dont havce the 2300 to do that.

Re: Need help with springs.

You can get away with just the Sportlines and CC plates for a little while. Eventually you'll want to upgrade your shocks/struts, ball joints and probably install a bumpsteer kit, but for one summer it won't hurt.

I you were dd the car and putting a ton of miles on then I'd recommend doing everything that will adjust the geometry right away so that you don't wear your tires out.

Like I said I'm gonna be saving all year for the kit above...I'm trying to get away with not using cc plates cause I've spent all my money so far
