    if you are going to do springs you are going to want to do struts as well. by lowering your car youre changing the geometry of your car and other suspension mods will need to be done. this thread should help. Adjustable Panhard Bar

    Thanks

    I aprreciate it so what did you ennd up doing... Man it seems we need a boat load of parts to go 1.25" lower ishhh maybe I can live with my awd looking TA for a while lol

    What did the whole thing cost you and what did you end up buying I'm exactly like you no auto x or drag I'll try the track but once or twice in a year.....It's mostly driving a little hard but nothing crazy

    i went with strano springs, car had ungraded bilstein shocks on it, and adj. panhard bar. I'd don't drive the car enough to worry about the other things.
