how is the ride with Progress Springs? i want to lower the front of my Max, i like how it sits in the rear, but i don't want to lose the comfort, i also have 22s but right now i'm driving around with the g37s rims and i'm thinking of selling the 22s and get some nice staggered 19s, what do you guys recommend?

If you use progress it looks the best. Drive quality, you can forget about that. I got all sorts of rattles in the car. From luxury to spec V. but I like sport more than luxury. Depends on what you want.

lol once you put the 22's on the ride quality goes straight out the door. my 22"/progress setup rides decent as long as i dont hit ruff roads and on the highway it just floats. honestly and i not talking trash but without a drop the 22's looks doofy. the drop really blends it all in. i drove for 1 week with stock height

the 22's ruined my drive quality, but the progress springs are awesome when it comes to maintaining your ride quality....if you have all sorts of rattles, thats not a spring problem, thats a car problem lol
