I am on 18s right now and I am tucking a little bit with the extreme drop and can go way lower the extreme drop but the size of my wheels and tires wont let me go much lower it rubs too much while driving. its only 75 bucks extra for the extreme drop so it wouldnt hurt getting it

Hey I heard that in order to properly lower your control arms need to be parallel to the road. How are yours sitting with it being so low? Also how do they ride compared to stock on the looser settings? I'm thinking about picking up a set of these, just need to know this info.

0<---->0 to 0</--\>0 is the best for handling. IE horizontal a-arms to 15 degrees upwards is the best.
0<___>0 is ok, but is not the best. Below horizontal can add bump steer, and a few other non desirable effects.

Just to let evrone know you can order these through Adam on ecotecforum.com on his store if anyone wants to go through him instead of some random site.

To anyone ordering these, look into getting the swift spring upgrade. Swift springs is one of the worlds leading spring makers and they will work with bc so you can get the better springs with the bc coilovers. Read up on it...apparently its very worth it. Cost is about an extra $300 for those springs.

Ruben- I think he wants to see if the control arms are flat, angled up, or angled down with how your car is stanced right now.

Ok will do, ill post pics up tomorrow. and @Mr Newb the ride compared to stock is definitively stiffer, when I ordered I didnt get the option for the swift springs let alone knowing what spring rate I have so I am kinda at a guess on that but the ride I have now is at full stiff because i lowered it another 1/4 in the front and 1/2 in the rear if I go any softer I just rub mainly because of the tortion bar in the rear and I have to be careful taking turns since there is no gap between the fender and tire now, I have also gone through two driver side axles since I dropped the car. I am almost considering raising it back up a little to regain my ride

How much lower can you go?
How tall are the springs?

Still not low enough for a signature.
