heat up the springs.... wrong way

Buy a coil over kit and possibly shocks and lower it a half inch ... expensive but right

Are there plates that go on top to raise it to just a half inch drop?

Can you even tell the difference of 1/4"? I know I couldn't. You can raise or lower the car that much just by changing tire pressure if you really wanted.

If you really, really want to go through all the trouble of somehow lowering it exactly 1/2" below stock, the most accurate way would be with coilovers, and then spending an hour adjusting them. If you went with the Teins, throwing a 1/4" spacer in there would be very easy.

Lol it's because I don't want it low, I just want to make the wheel gap look normal. Plus having an upgraded suspension is also a plus lol. But thx for all the info, I've had friends even telling me to go with tein h tech springs. So I'll have to start looking for some.
