2 inch drop ?

Should I get lowering springs for my car? Worried that my car will hit speed bumps if it's riding too low. It already gets pretty close.

A 2 inch drop will hit every bit of the speed bump

Ya so do I. Now I'm having second thoughts cause I really don't want to scratch up my new chin spoiler.

But a drop would look so cool.

You could go with frpp k springs that involves a 1.5 in drop on the front and back I haven't claimed any speed bumps yet although we will see when I attach the splitter

2" is to much on the S197 IMO. The K springs are perfect with a 1.5
