Lol. I take it you have a full tank of.gas. C springs are a good compromise.

I would do a 2 inch drop you can get it for 300 no problem the car will handle like a beauty but go to a 245/50 for the rear you will like that setup and will make up for the smaller tires set up so you dont have to calibrate the computer for the mph difference.

+1^ how low do you want to go? I liked my stance with the H&R race springs but I love my cut Cobra springs.

Anything lower then 2" drop will increase bumpsteer issues and geometry. Also your exhaust will scrape all the time. It will also bottom out as well.

I sit at 2.25 lower and have neither of those problems. I am aware though that the sn95s generally suffer the bumpsteer issues and not the foxes.

The back ones are boo boo, it bounces sometimes when I ride over a bumpy street.

That's why I wanna just even it all out ya know, then I gotta get spacers on the back cause it sits too far in rather than flush
