    what springs for drop?

    I just put some bigger wheels on my car and no my car sits a bit too high for my liking, so I'm thinking about lowering my car. my back wheels are 19's and my fronts are 18s. The car is a little high in the back, and it looks pretty cool, but it increases my chances of scraping on driveways since it puts the nose lower. I figure if I even out the stance that the nose will have a lesser chance of scraping, so maybe I should lower the back a 1/2 inch more than the front? I also only want to lower the car 1" max in the front. What springs would be good for this? here's a pic of my car.

    Heater hose mod.

    At least if you like the current stance of the car.

    I have stranos and love the stance. here is a pic for you. I could take a better picture that shows the stance if you'd like.

    I'm interested in a 1inch drop also, to keep it from scraping most driveways.


    would one need new shocks for such a small drop?
