Lowering 1.5 inch???

Alright guys you all helped me on my tire situation and I'm gettin ready to order them but now I'm wanting to lower it 1.5 inch and still be able to haul two people in the back seat with out bottoming out on everything what spring rate coils do i need front and back and do I need to get shocks and cc plates and everything else if I'm just doing a 1.5 inch drop?

I ran my H&R Race springs for about a year without any issues. Never bottomed them out or anything like that, but I rarely have people in my back seat. My shocks and struts held up just fine but my roads aren't too bad either. I ran without CC plates with no unusual tire wear as well, but if you're worried about tire wear then it would be a good idea to install them.

Yeah I figured for the difference I would go with the plates but really don't wanna change shocks if I don't have to I just wanna be able to have people in the car bc right now it bottoms out bad for some reason and it only has 87,000

Of you're bottoming out now then you'll definitely bottom out when you lower it. My guess is your rear shocks are on their way out if you're currently bottoming out.

That's what I was afraid of so I guess I will go with the lowering springs,shock, and cc plates. I work at Advance Auto Parts so I can get monroe and kyb shocks what would you all recommend?

They should work just fine if you don't intend to do heavy racing. You can run foxbody shocks if you want one that will work better for lowered applications

install 93 5.0 foxbody shocks front and rear. or tokico-d's... but for the $$$$ (HALF PRICE) Foxbody shocks bolt right up and will never blow out. more travel. *Amazing..
