So kinda good news... For now.
Talked to my mon, she said if I get a good amount of money saved up before the end of senior year she'd let me take out a loan up to 10k to finish off the rest of the car
Termi here I come

I know eibach and HR sprigs are performance lowering springs but can lowering springs not be performance ones? Sorry for wording it wrong or being retarded haha could sprigs just be for exterior appearance and not for handling?

Most likely not because lowering you car already gives it a lower center of gravity but it shouldn't change the handling that much

Lowering the car will always change how it handles. Less nose dive, more cornering etc.
I have no suspension mods. Threw on some new tires and wheels, and with all the extra rubber my handling has changed a lot

handling feels better with a dropped car IMO. thats if you upgrade ur shocks/struts as well. plus even if doesnt do much do ur handling, it looks way better than that nasty *** 4x4 jeep stance they came out with yuckkk!

depends how low u go. i had to have my front drivers side rolled but thats because i need a new control arm on that side and it was rubbing on my fender bad so i had it rolled a bit. but u should be fine when u drop it. It's the 18's that have more problems when they drop it

I believe you have 17x9s all around... You should be fine. Now if you were running 10+ rears with fat tires then yeah, you'd need to roll the fenders. I'm on 295s right now and it used to rub like crazy. I had to "roll" my fenders with a rubber mallet. LMAO
