To lower or not to lower ....

Im in denial about lowering my Termi for few reasons. It's my DD & I frequently travel over speed bumps. I would love to have to look of a dropped Termi yet I refuse to sacrifice drivability to get that look. Granted the stock setup isnt bad by a long shot but closing the wheel gap would be sick. I've decided on Eibach if I do decide to lower her down.

Any thoughts ?

Re: To lower or not to lower ....

just lower it about 1.5 inches vs the normal 2 that H&R race or sports give you~

you can probably go with H&R race and install some poly isolators and that will lift it up, but you can research to make sure.

with the race springs I am 26.0 front ground to fender and that is with one isolator out in the front. The rear has both isolators and is 26.5 inches.

With a set of non OEM isolators from maximum motorsports it will raise it back up some. Stock is around 28-28.25 inches~ 1.5 isnt horrible other than you will have to be careful on curbs pulling up or going up inclines a bit more.

also you will need caster/camber plates.

Yeah I'm thinking like 1 inch cause the clearence is already tight already. The isolators work good for sure, I've had those on my 94 back n the day
