Default Which Springs Lower The Least

05 Max
18 inch wheels 8 inch wide
245/45/18 tires
riding on new kyb shocks and struts

I want to have slightly better handling and slightly better look however I don't want to be one of those people who have you basically stop at speed bumps and turn the wheel all the way in one direction while going 2 mph just so I don't scrape

^^ that is a bit of an exaggeration but you guys know where I'm coming from.

Progress. And no matter what, you'll need to go slow over a speed bump. The day you lower the car is the day you lose the ability to not worry over speed bumps. Lol.

Default Re: Which Springs Lower The Least

it seems like people have way too much noise issues with Eibach and progress springs are discontinued

the pictures for drops of Teins that I've seen seem moderate so that's good.

anyone on here have experience with canucks motorsport springs? I think mrjasonlyrics has them but I think he's on 20s whereas I'm on 18s

edit I understand I will have to be careful once I put springs on, I just don't want to be like my brother who an integra where you cant see the top of the tire and he has to drive 10 mph under the limit everywhere he goes

They are low from the factory anyway. The max is a 4x4 without a drop. I'd go with tiens. It's a nice drop. Not to low...

Tein, if you're looking for a light drop for sure.

Racingline, if you're looking for a drop similar to progress, which is what I have.
