    It's not advisable for street cars esp. front wheel drive cars.

    H&R would be your best bet. Hindi naman yan taon-taon pinapalitan.
    The tukod-look is meant for FWD drag cars to minimize "wheel-hop" during hard launches. Aerodynamics have almost nothing to do with it.

    Ah ok.

    I was thinking about the "funny car" class of the old days at NHRA which are RWD cars and had the tukod look - really low fronts and very thin wheels... These went the quarter mile in 7 seconds or less. In hindsight, I think it was so the front wheels won't go airborne as much.

    Now funny cars are made of carbon fiber and no longer have the tukod look.

    Well...I can't believe na maitatanong ko ito.

    Pero noong nagbakasyon ako sa Pinas..usong uso sa Cavite ang putol springs ng mga kotse. Halos lahat ng tinanong kong mga may ari ng lowered cars ay puro putol ang springs nila and stock shocks pa.

    Ok naman daw ang handling and hindi matagtag.

    Now...ubod dami talaga rin akong naririnig ng mga bad effects ng putol na springs...safety, ride, etc dito sa USA....Pero bat ganoon ...sa Pinas usong uso and ok naman ang feedback ng mga gumagamit.

    Ngayon nate tempt tuloy akong itest din sa aking honda civic. May nakita akong civic SIR...hanip sa drop..3.5 inches daw pinutol sa springs niya...ang ayos naman daw ang ride. ganda talaga

    Worthwhile kaya ito? Ang mga lowering springs kasi ndi ako masatisfy sa drop. Ano sa tingin ninyo mga kakosa?

    thanks yous.

    nope. cost cutting lang yan, pero di nila alam, mas malaki gagastusin nila in the long run. and why would you want to drop your car 3.5" freakin inches??? puro porma lang yan, lalo na with our road conditions here.

    i'd say go for a aftermarket spring/shock combo, or if you want adjustable ride height, get a good coil over kit.
