I do not know of a spring that drops more than advertised which is between 1.25 - 2". What I have noticed over the yrs is that even if a spring advertises a certain drop in inches, that not always does that spring accomplish what it states it will do. Then again I have seen springs that advertise less drop and drop more than advertised.

What I am probably going to do is keep adding to my collection of the MM pieces to make up my suspension. And one of those pieces is going to be adjustable coil overs. At least with those you can be precise in what you want in a drop.

I will look at the spring rates some today to see what they all state, and let you know what I found.

The biggest drop that I've seen Is Tein S springs drops like 2.5" in the front and like 2.3" in the rear

If that's to much H&R super sport drops 2" in the front and 1.6 in the rear

Your best bet is either Ebay or a Google search to find the best price and lowest shipping. I was about to swap to the Tein S for a lower drop then what my H&R lowered me to. Then I convinced my self to go the Coilover route.

Also! if your getting any lowering spring set that goes below 1.5", I promise you it is a must to get a set of aftermarket Caster/Camber plates, unless you're more inclined to buy a set of tires every other month especially if you get the Tein S springs.

If you really want a drop that lowers you over 2", look into coilovers or even a bagged setup.
A 2+ drop with progressive springs looks awesome but driving sucks!

Unless you have perfect roads and driveways with zero inclines I'd keep the drop with progressives to no more than 2", and this is coming from experience.

I dont mind the ride to much since i dont drive the car much at all anyway. We did just drop a blower in here recently so i may have to do coil overs or something like that.

I don't drive my six with a 2.2" front drop that much either (maybe 500 miles this season) and it still sucks when i'm used to the mach at stock height and my truck that's way higher up lol.

This is why I'm going the route of coilovers so I can get it right where I want it because a 2" drop looks like stock height to me now and drives me nuts. Also the coastal roads around here are flat as can be, no bumps or pot holes

If you're looking to drop the car not only for looks but give it some of the best handling possible I highly recommend taking a look into a Coilover Kit I've driven one of our part time employees 2002 that's SR equipped and it's feels like driving a track prepped car. The ride quality honestly wasn't that bad either! Let me know if you don't have our discount code and I'll get you set up!
