    So I want to lower my car, but I am not sure how much to lower it. I am really new at lowering cars so I kinda have no idea.

    this is just a general question that I've been waiting to ask... Would yall recommend buying just lowering springs or would yall recommend to save up a lil more money and buy come coilover?

    cuz ive heard that if u only have lowering springs that it will eventually wear out your stock struts but if you have coilovers then it prevents from that... does anyone have any suggestions about what i should do???

    stock struts r ok unless you lower more than 1inch. form what i've read everyone that has the coilovers likes them.

    o aight cool. thanks i appreciate it. i was thinking of going lower than an inch so i might as well just wait.. but it sounds like the wait is well worth it!

    guys im pretty new also in this... 1st of all thnx for the post, and i have a question maybe some of u guys can help me out... Ive seen the lancers like having bigger gap up front than on the back.. Which springs would be better to keep the rear intact and just lowering the front for about 2-2.5"?? Thnx up front...
