    If I were you, I'd get some blackouts long the front to compliment the black ride. Really finishes off the stealth look in the front IMO. Nice ride

    Could lower the rear an inch for free with the heater hose mod, even out that "Tugboat" look

    I would do Eibach Pro Kit 1.25'' drop, it will do 1.5-1.75'' after it settles in a few weeks or so.. then definetely get Blisten HD socks.
    3 hours labor @ $80/hr for springs, 2 hours labor for shocks, $250 springs, $400 socks. u do the math = $1k
    then go to realign your wheels, usually the front ones will be way off, I had them use a GM specfic tool to move the control arms so the amber kit ($200) is not needed .. the back wheels were fine.

    It's more like a street car.. she sees the track once in a while. I think I should be ok with a ~1 inch drop.

    Thanks guys

    some of the access entries are steep, I see your point. but 99% time I am ok clearing on the highway even some bumps. remember buy the progressive strings one like Eibach, the more you press the more they stiff up and hold well. with new shocks..
    I do plan on getting a Miata or S2000 for a regular drive. check out the little 2007 Miatas with hard top convertible under 25k.. there're little go carts to through around the city.. noice
