The kit is supposed to come with new bump stops. Ask him if he can find them. The stock ones will be a bit rough.

What... how does bump stops even come up in the conversation with 1.5" springs? My Steeda springs drop 1.5in in the rear and the stock bump stop still have a ton of room.

On another note, a friend of mine with (I think) the Cobra Jet rear springs or whatever springs with a really low drop trimmed his stock bump stops.

Lowered my car last weekend on a set of Coilovers and I had to cut my bumpstop in half and I'm still sitting on it. I don't think you have much to worry about if it's just a 1.5inch drop haha. Maybe the smaller bump stops or a slight trim that's it.

I did mine with the panhard and SR control arms without relocation and the set up works great, I used the pro kit as well. Adjustable Panhard is a must. Car is off centre without it.

Drop looks good with the pro kit, I need to get rid of the 4x4 look of mine too.

Doing all three things at the same time totally changed the feel and handling of the car . No more noes dive, and when you hit the gas the the rear end stays pretty much flat .. I'm very happy with it, for now

I was actually wondering, what exactly do I NEED to lower my car on springs successfully? Many people are saying I'm going to need PH bar along with camber plates? Help! Thanks guys!

Black you can go without CC plates but you will be 1.3-1.6 neg camber in the front. The panhard bar is a given cause your rear end will not be centered after lowering it. I did CC plates and my friend did the same springs without plates or struts and his rides pretty good. I would spend money on struts before I would CC plates. The ride is so much better. Good luck.

So I can basically just get the panhard and the springs and I'll be fine?

I didn't use CC plates but if I had the extra money at the time I would have put them in as well but Yes you can do it with just the PH and springs , the kit comes with alignment bolts but like he said it will be off just a bit. I have notice a little inner tire wear on the front right tire having had them done about 10000 kms ago . I will be bringing my car back to see if it can be aligned a bit better now that the springs have settled in. In the long run it would be wiser to have had the CC plates put in . Hope that helps
