What kind of problems would occur if you threw the stock springs back on with the bumpstops cut though? That is my concern.

the bump stops are there to help stop the shock from "bottoming out" completely and to limit the wear on suspension components when fully compressed - on stock springs your suspension would be allowed to travel further than they were designed to before you hit them so if you ever bottomed out your shocks you would be putting more wear on them.

sorry, thats not the greatest explanation. you may be able to buy stock replacement bump stops though if thats what youre concerned with.

The eibach ask for about 1.2 inch removed and swift about 1 inch... the tein are the smallest drop so those might require .5 inch or something so you could get away with not cutting them... but generally speaking you have to cut them... and technically speaking im sure the dealer won't notice you cut the bumpstop... they might think your suspension is messed up but they won't assume you cut the bump stop after buying springs

Swift seem to be giving the best results, though, correct?

I'm probably going to purchase the car after my lease is up anyway - not really worried, but just in case.

In my opinion the Swift are the best out there...

Seems like everyone prefers the Swift, what's the spring rate info on the T1R S-Coils? It's a nearly identical drop as the Swift, would love to know the spring rate to compare. Swift seems to be the stiffest so far.

Old Thread, New Question

I have the Eibach Pro-Kit Springs and want to drop the car a fit further.

Too much gap in the rear. Would perfer to have a 1.2'' Drop in front and at least 1.4" in rear. Will be running 225/40/r18 Tires on 18x8 Rims. Already looks great but want to get rid of that gap. Please Help!

What Springs should I buy?
