    the measurement means that the car is lowered by inches. for 1.5 for neuspeed, 1.5" drop from stock height. its the measure between the top of the wheel to the fender.

    kung for everyday-car, ok na yung 1.5 inch drop. you wouldn't like having ultra low stance vehicle for the kind of roads here in the metro.

    hindi ganon kalaki yung drop niya. as said, 1.5 inch lang ibababa nung oto. kung ang trip ay bastos drop... two choices, coil over or putol springs. pero through experience, ang hirap drive ng bastos drop lalo na sa maraming humps. 1.5" to 1.75" drop is ok for everyday driving IMO.

    Gusto ata slammed eh.

    Tanabe DF210 springs = 2" drop. Drive through provincial roads at your own risk.

    My car is dropped by 1.5" inches and I think it's enough. I really don't want it to be a low-rider since it's my everyday vehicle and knowing MM, roads are really not that paved.

    If you have an extra vehicle to use then you might as well get 2" lowering-springs then change your rims to 17's - 18's for your ride. You will be experiencing though hardships passing through humps ... you'll be forming the figure 8 or 7 when passing through it.

    Coilovers are adjustable but the thing is, they're more expensive and as what I have heard, they sort of give a bumpy ride.


    BTW. My car rides on 15's.

    Coilovers and a bumpy ride are not a given. It just depends on the spring rate of said coilovers. Higher spring rates = stiffer.

    Manufacturers usually list these on their websites.

    FYI

    makasingit po sa usapang lwering spring mga sirs,yung po auto ko accord naka lowered sya sa front,ang concern ko lang hindi pantay ang kain ng gulong mas mabilis maubos ang sa inner side nya kahit pina wheel alignment ko na sa servitek,sabi sakin baligtarin ko na lang daw ang gulong kung upod na kasi daw wala daw camber yung auto,kaya gusto ko na sana ibalik sa dati,tama ba yung sinabi ng servitek o may iba pa problema ang auto,o kaya normal ang ganun kung naka lowered ang spring ng auto?may nabasa naman ako thread dito about sa camber kit.pwede ba lagayan yun ang auto,o kaya lagyan ko ng rubber lifter para bumalik sa dati nya height,o need ko na palitan talaga ng spring?please advise mga sirs.TIA
