    Best springs

    What are the best all around lowering springs? I want a 1-1.5 inch drop. Im concerned about the rear springs starting to sag and want to keep good (stiff) ride quality.

    Likely the best out of the springs available.
    Although yes, it will suffer. Won't be too bad for 4-6K miles, but then the stock shocks will really start to stress.

    Strano springs are the most recommended spring on this site and others i have looked at. I personally don't have them but have heard that they do not sag. The most loved setup is a koni shock/strano spring setup.

    The best starting place is subframe connectors. They will help eliminate body flex so you're doors will stay lined up and your panels will stay straight. Have seen a few fbodys with dimpled quarter panels because they didn't invest in SFCs.

    aparently stranos are the best. I can't say either way because I've never used them, but sportlines will get you the lowest ride height FYI but not the best quality out of your options. I just bought some and will be installing them when I get the rest of my suspension parts.

    I have bmr lowering springs. the ride is good but are not low enough for my personal taste. the car still has that goofy stock height look.... just slightly lower.
