with these coilovers you are able to adjust the height without seriously comprimising the spring travel. the ride is nearly identical to how it was before i dropped it the rest of the way. i've always kept the damening very stiff becaus i perfer the way the car rides and handles that way. i have never bottomed out with these coilovers
if you remember the car was slammed, now its dumped.

i do show the car btw... i haven't entered it since i lost the sequence front lip but once i get my nightshadow bumper and wrap the whole car matte black, it will be ready for the shows again.

those scratches were from when the lip got ripped off, before that there was not a mark on the car; and besides the marks from the lip getting ripped off, there still aren't any

Looks good... But could never even think of something like that here in the chicago area, you wouldnt be able to drive down the street without something coming off the car or getting stranded on the top of some speed bump lol.

I'm against slammed vehicles personally, but to each their own. Some of the things I'm doing or have done may be frowned upon by others as well, but its my car/my choice & in the end, if this is what blaxuede likes....cool then.

With that said, let me also mention that dropping a vehicle (esp this low) will change the suspension geometry. Here are a couple of good threads that will give those interested some back ground on the effects of a drop, coil overs or shock/spring setup:

Is this just a show car? I can't see how anyone can do normal driving in the city or highway.
