I think SUVs look strange when slammed. But just my opinion.

So I put the lowering springs on which lowered the car about an inch. I must ask, why lower it even more with the BC coilovers? Don't you take away from the increased ride height enjoyment of being able to see over the other cars (not trucks). It is funny, people buy trucks which are already high, and make them higher. Other people buy the quasi SUV's which are a little higher than cars, and put them back down to car level. Just my 2 cents, not hating here.

Iím always adjusting mine so no matter how many people I have or cargo it doesnít bottom out. Right now I can only fit one finger between the tire and the wheel well. That seems to be the sweet sport for me. But it looks as if their is not gap.

If you just change the springs and not the struts your going to blow them. Then youíll be bouncing around and bottoming out. My coil overs absorb the bumps and doesnít bounce the way I have them adjusted.

Not necessarily correct. I've had Eibachs installed for about 9-10 years now with no problems.

Thatís great, didnít know the stock struts would work with the lowering springs. I could have saved a grand over getting the coil overs...

they work with them fairly well the only time you run into issues is like back in the day the cheap coil over setup you add to the stock struts if you went to low it would blow the struts. lowering springs are very effective especially if you get a nice new Kyb shock with it lol.

Yeah, I just never had great luck with stock struts and lowering springs. I would always bottom out and it would be so loud.
