I'm ready to lower my car. Now the question I have is, do I need to get shocks/struts or is there a set of lowering springs that doesn't require the stock ones to be changed?
What was the drop like with the ultralites? Around 1 1/2"?if u dont mind spending a few bucks, call up Fred at Evolution Performance and ask for the stuff that i have. He sold me all Steeda parts (less the bmr lower control arm rellocation brackets). The car is now lower, hooks up better (0-60), has NOOOO wheel hop, handles better and looks sinister.
Did somebody say sinister? Steeda Sports springs, Koni Adjustables, SVT upper strut mount, UPR panhard rod. 4 hours to install in my garage, 4,000 times better handling and appearance. If you are going to pull the struts and rear springs, might as well replace them at once. You won't regret it.
Our Pan Hard Bar is only $149 with a lifetime guarantee and free shipping in July!I was very much in your position. I just wanted to lower my car with springs, but the more I read indicated that you should really consider:
- Camber/caster plates (to ensure that you can bring your negative camber back to spec)
- Adjustable panhard bar (to ensure that your rear axle can be properly centered)
When considering these items, you may as well upgrade the shocks/struts (Koni STR.T or Sports) while you're going through the trouble or paying for labor costs.
I installed steeda sport springs without installing shocks and I would recommend that at the very least you replace the factory strut mounts. They are one-time-use and if you don't take them off VERY carefully they will get damaged. I lost a few bearings in mine when I removed them and the car felt like **** several months while I waited and waited for my koni sports to come in.I'm ready to lower my car.
