    Re: lowering springs

    Since no one answered, I guess I will. I am on D3 springs (B&G made) and they are fine. I installed them with no issues. Car feels great and no alignment needed. I have not noticed any adverse tire wear and no rubbing issues using the stock wheels.

    Check the for sale section. My car is in there. I've also got old threads in this forum that you can find.

    RDUB110. No problem. I have my springs up for sale now in the classifieds section. Take a look. They are also the second run of springs. It comes with the spacers that are required for the rear struts as well.

    Here are pictures:

    Re: lowering springs

    With the springs I have driven 6,000+ miles with no abnormal tire wear or alignment issues, and I'm running a pretty soft tire, Michelin Pilot Super Sport.
