Here are some pictures of my car before and after i installed the H&R sport springs and KYB shocks and struts. The springs only dropped the car one inch to begin with but once they settle the total drop should be 1.4" at all four corners. I was surprised when i took out my old shocks and struts they were a lot worse then i had thought. As soon as i pulled them apart they dropped on there own. One thing i will say for those who have not done this job make sure you completely remove the bottom bolt when you do the rear shocks. The shock has a grove in it the bolt goes across the grove much like a key in a pulley. If you have a rear sway bar plan on removing the nut that holds it to the A arm you do not need to remove the entire sway bar. The ride is really good. Cost of parts H&R Springs 280.00 KYB Shocks and Struts 158.00.

Yummy Out

I really like the H&R/GR2 combo. Firm but not too stiff, and good handling on the street.
