    confused Suitable lowering height for comfort.

    so far,with the SRI suspension I cant complain,as its probably the most comfortable car i've driven.but when the time comes that I want to lower it,obviously the comfort will be altered,but whats a reasonable height for keeping most of that comfort.i've heard people say theyv went 35,40 or 60.whats everyone elses feelins witht he car after theyv had this done,more so people who have had and sri lowered.just wonder what it'l be like and probably whats the best height to go to?

    Most of the guys on here will suggest 30mm on Eibachs; however, with the SRI set up, you'll only notice a drop of about 15mm.

    Get your shocks done to: B4's for comfort or B6's for sportyness!

    Any lower and you'll compromise ride quality (but your car will look the nuts!)

    yes will still go down as only rim is changed and not the total hight of the wheels
