But stock ride height looks like you're driving a tractor

That's a bit exaggerated. lol

Wheel size can also play a factor. For people with 19s or 20s, it doesn't look that bad. People with 17s have it the worst. Had a buddy of mine park next to me with 17s and I have 19s. Big difference imo.

I haven't scraped once yet on anything, it's totally worth it to go lower. My OEM's are 18", at the stock ride it it definitely felt like a tractor, especially in the turns compared to now.

Maybe I am not as understanding because my car came with the V6 PP with the GT grade stuff, plus with my BMR rear LCAs, it is excellent for a daily driver.

Anyways...congrats on personalizing your ride and making it your own.

PP and GT stuff isn't anything special, especially not the springs. A great upgrade for looks and handling is lowering springs

They're not any better than the stock v6 springs performance wise compared to aftermarket springs

oh wow. let it go man. SERIOUSLY. They have a slightly higher damper then the stock V6 ones. And the struts have a slightly better valve.

Of course aftermarket will be better. Never said they were not. My original post was only because I do not prefer the lowered look. That is all.

Idk I think everyone should get aftermarket springs, one of the best bang for your buck mods both performance wise and asthetically pleasing. Also a rear sway bar will do wonders and will be a very noticeable improvement for the $$.
