    What is everyone else doing for suspension? (My all black coupe)

    Currently on a set of Eibachs with 2 cut coils, not a lot out there to get the look/ride I'm after... Suggestions?

    I investigated coilovers. Would cost a couple thousand. Allows adjustability Not a lot of options out there.

    What is the drop on the Eibach's?
    My 08 front end looks the same as yours?

    Current drop on front is 1 3/4 inch, gotta look at the wheel gap to see it in the front

    Is it the same for the coupe vs sedan?
    I have scraped my front end a few times already

    I had an 08 sedan prior, I know the coupe weighs more but the drop seems the same. They are rated at like 3/4" front and 1" rear. That's why I cut the Eibachs to get a better stance. I love low cars though

    so are you just after looks? It sounds that way since you are on the lowering discussion and not a suspension tack. Me, I would love more handling out of my car.

    Actually, I think that's perfect... how low do you want it?

    I'm after the best of both worlds... But $200 springs or $2000 coil overs don't present a lot of options.
