It all depends on what kind of drop you're looking for.
The Racingline's are pretty aggressive in the front and made for a slight rake(the car slants downward from rear to front).
Static stance looks pretty damn good too. Catch myself doing double takes when I park it lol

I have teins, they ride pretty much the same as stock (pretty comfortable) and they handle a little better than stock.

they have a 2 finger gap in the front.

the racinglines will probably be stiffer meaning better handling but not as comfortable.

pick your poison

Do not buy anything from racingline. Their products and customer service suck.

i got the FTSB from them.

good product. it took a week to get to me though which seems a little long being that i only live about 200 miles from where they shipped the item. ( in their defense they are Canadian and I live in WA so I imagine the import/export process might been what held it up)

also the way the item was boxed it would not install that way, I had to disassemble the whole thing and flip the connectors around that touch the strut tower. minor issue for me but if someone wasn't that handy that would have left them stumped

Sweet, thanks.

It does say 'Back by popular demand' so maybe they got enough emails and decided to shut us up. #powertothepeople

I'd say $200 is bargain. I can do my own but for $200 I'd sit down and watch
