1.5 or 2" drop?

So I noticed that the SR lowering springs are on sale on AM. $99! I might bite the bullet and get them while I can. Or, I was looking at H&R SS lowering springs which offer a .5" drop more than the SR performance ones. My question is, how would each look with 20" wheels? Which do you think would look better? Post pictures if you can

I've always preferred a 1.5" drop with the S197 body style. Even more so if you're running a 20" rim. The wheel well really fills up with a 20" wheel at the stock ride height, let alone with a 1.5" drop. Again, this is just my opinion as far as looks!

I've been trying to find some pics to post up for you, but coming up short. Most of our customer submitted pics are with a 19" or 18" wheels. However, I'm going to keep looking and will post up anything I find for ya!

Get the SR springs, and if you don't like how low it is you can always remove the isolators, or even cut the springs a little bit.

I have the H&R lowering springs with 20"s 1.9 drop , I think it is perfect , a nice low aggressive stance.

The SR lowering springs are $99 right now? Can someone link them to me? I'm either blind or more tired than I thought cause I can't find them, lol. The only ones I can find are $180.

They probably had them on sale to attract buyers. Too much supply, not enough demand? They must have demand now if the price is jacked up

AM is trolling me, I swear. I get an email from them where the SR spring are $99, then I go to order them and they are still the same $180 as before. D:

On top of that the tuner I just ordered 2 days ago is on sale now for like $30 cheaper....

Not the happiest camper right now, lol.

Here is a 2" drop with Eibach sportlines, similar to SS H&R
Rear is a bit high as I put in new shocks the day before and almost zero gas as I was taking it in to the Las Vegas Convention Center for SEMA when these shots were taken at the sign up lot.

Wheels are 20x9 and 20x10.5
