This is not his first lowered car so i guess he didnt go off roading with it.
As I said, you need to pay attention to what you're doing. You will rub often if you don't. But, a little more awareness isn't too much to ask for if you want such a sexy stance IMO. Lowered cars are a bit trickier, but worth the extra skill points that you'll need.

I'm going to bite the bullet and switch to a combo with a 1' drop.
Did you cut your bump stops down?

Yup, it's either the springs or the drop is simply too much. I think the springs. Gonna switch over to FFRP in the spring

Update: went with BMR. Gives me a 1' front and 1.25 rear.

FWIW, the left rear sits .25 inch lower than the right. Had it looked at by the shop, everything g installed properly. Defective crap parts... H&R

My car and both of my club mates all sit nicely on H&R's. Well, your bound to find a rotten apple in every bushel.

True, this may have been a bad apple. I am changing springs first, they're more likely the issue over struts and shocks (unless I am wrong here, pls let me know). The setup is almost two months old, so I think I've seen most of the settling it will do.

I had was good things about H&R, so I don't doubt this is a bad batch. Still unhappy I'm the one that got it
