    Yooo.. basically im on a mission to get my car ready for a show on the 20th of this month.. ive ordered lowering springs as a temp stance mod to get it looking good in time for the show.. instead of dishing out loads for coilovers..

    their 60mm on the front and 35mm on the back.. if my tape measure is correct.. thats pretty motherfucking low..

    is this usable?? as im pretty sure my front bumpers gonna be an inch off the floor.. and 99% of my front tires gonna be in my arch..

    :/ SCARED!

    Loads of people are lower than that on coilovers! You'll have alot more than an inch clearance.

    Maybe you should get coilovesr, at least you'll be able to set the height accordingly.

    get the 60mm ones.. you'll be fine, just be careful on speed bumps and them stupid sleeping policemen things they have in car parks..

    my mates got an e36 coupe thats lowered a damn site more than 60mm on the front and he's happy so you got nothing too worry about thats for sure..
