    best springs

    I am looking into changing springs. I want a lower stance but best handling. Im not worried about how rough it rides. Like to lower about 1.5" front and rear. Any suggestions?

    The most recommended setup is Strano springs and Koni shocks for both lowering and handling. You will also want to consider adjustable LCA's and panhard bar to keep the wheels and rear centered in the car.

    What Jeff stated. You do not want to put lowering springs on the car with OEM DeCarbon Shocks. They are not valved properly to effectively handle the different spring rate of a lowered spring. I am also running Sam's lowering springs with Koni 4/4 shocks and am very satisfied.

    Using Hotchkis 1" drop springs with UMI adjustable PHB, LCA's and TA. Very happy with how it handles.
