hey guys just wanted ur opinion.



I got 17's 205/40/17 on an EK coupe.


How low should i go?


Sport springs(H&R, Eibach Sportlines, etc etc) ? or should i go for something like Eibach Prokit/ H&R OE?


also, if i go sport, will camber wear be real bad with the 17's?


If you guys have pics of your rides with 17's lowered that would be fannnnnnnnnntastic!


thanks guys

i'd personally go atleast (1.75/1.5) thats what i have and its a nice drop, but i'm thinking of going to H&R Race but with Integra spring rates. also get good shocks too KYB AGX, Tokico Illumina, Koni red or yellows

and hell ya on the sig, damn chair

Keep in mind he drives and EK Coupe, not a Hatch. Coupes weigh more.

I had an EK sedan (slightly heavier than a coupe, but more comparable than a hatch) w/ H&R Sport and my 17's rubbed sometimes. I had initially put H&R Race springs on it and it was tucking on all 4 corners (with steelies, no rubbing, didn't have the 17 x 7 rims yet).

I would stay under 2" of drop. DumbasSi has H&R Sports on his coupe and it's a great looking drop.

She's cute, but looks like she lost a tooth in a hockey scrap. Nice *****, though.
