Not worth it, I have the skunk2 lowering springs and it doesnt handle as good as the H&R springs. I'd go with H&R, have you replaced your struts yet? you may want to do that when you swap the springs.

skunk2 lowering springs...2.5" drop, I'm not sure about the spring rate. Even with H&R you can get custom spring rates...I'm not sure if they're as good as tein or anything like that.

well i dont actually know about the springs, i have the skunk2 coilovers however... they gave me WAY better handling (i set it with rake suspension) and its on stock struts...so the ride is not all that bad...

my friend has H&R's on his teg, he said its almost as good as his ride, if not equivalent

What happens when your shocks blow? I'm afraid of that because I have Dropzone coilovers and still have the stock struts :?

well it doesnt sound is dramatic as it really does.

pretty much you can just feel the ride getting really bumper. you be jumping all of the place on bumps. its a pretty gradual transition though. but when you take out the stock struts you'll see oil and crap coming out of it. that's when you really know its blown.

wow skunk2 on stock struts, you're a brave man. those coilovers have such goddamn high spring rate i would never do that. is dangerous and no fun to ride on

Do you know anything about Dropzone. The ride is pretty good right now, it doesn't bounce much at all, the ride is really stiff though.

all i can tell by looking at some places online that sells them is that the dropzone coilovers look like cheap stuff. they cost only 130 bucks. . .you know what they say, you get what you pay.

me personally, i wouldnt go cheap with suspension. but im like a suspension junky so it doesnt matter to me. if i cant beat you in a straight line, i'll take you at the turns.

yeah you need camber kits. well you need shocks, then get camber kits if you gonna continue to run low and an alignment. because you're eating up tires quick and that will cost you a whole lotta money.
