Worrying about scraping is half the fun lol

Driver Gear springs will leave you wanting more low. I was sure that was the height I wanted 3 years ago.







Then went to HPA SHS for another 1/2" of low.





Then to ultra lows.



From DG springs to HPAs was not a noticeable degradation in ride quality. HPAs to ultra lows was more noticeable.

Hey drval, where the HPS all the way down in that picture?

Also, you have any full pictures on the DGs?

All the way down. I'll look around for DG photos. There's a thread on here that should have a bunch. I think VWR springs are linear like the DG, and a little bit lower, so almost the same height as the HPAs.

Ultra lows are a little below half way in front, near the top in back.

This is true. VWR's are linear, which is why you can use them with stock struts and not worry about killing them too quickly, and they are noticeably lower than DG's.

This!! Hahaha. Crab walking up speed bumps is the best thing that comes with having a lowered car.
