^^ok so i checked and most people are saying they are garbage. at the same time most people are talking about garbage when they slammed it or did 2&half+ drop. some peeps said it's alright.

I only want to drop it about 1&half-2 inches and that's it. It would be on stock shocks. My car is 95 dx coupe. can i get feed back on my situation please. I was offered for $100 even. Any and all thoughts pls.

do both at the same time get shocks and proper springs or u will kick urself in the *** for such a crappy ride u have.imo generic cheap colis on stock shocks is unsafer and by far a crappier ride than stock springs on stock shocks

Ahhhhhh...discisions, discisions!

It's pretty much just for appearance, nothing agressive or anything. I want to stick to a smaller rim (no more than 15") and slap on my lip kit. with a little drop it will look nice. For $100 brand new (so the person claims) i figured it would be alright for a year. Well, i def take in to consideration what all of you have said and if there is anymore to add, please do folks.

let me know
Jeron

what a waste of money to do anything half assed. car that old, you gotta be looking at shocks and a bushing kit first. or I guess if you have to drop it, look for some springs, and then quickly save money for shocks.
