How much will Vogtland lower my ZSP Coupe?

Ok, nice and simple.

Here are the Vogtland spings, on sale at a good price.

http://cgi.ebay.ca/VOGTLAND-SPRINGS-...item483bc22cc1

Im looking to lower my car not too much, maybe about 1" give or take between the front and rear. I cant go too low considering what I have to deal with every day. For instance, heres a very bad pic that kinda shows the 2" of clearance on the speed bumps at school:




The article says 1.2" all around, but is this what has been found true? Ive seen a few posts with people saying they didnt even want to drive the car it was so low.

They are part #(951075)

thanks guys

I have them... 1.5" all around. Less than 1 finger gap at the front wheels, back wheels are tucked.

There's a thread with a PDF listing the various spring types / drops.

I have vogtland springs #951075 and and they are actually 35mm springs(from their website) so its actually 1.4".

This is how my car sits only after about 400kms, and they will settle a bit more. They lower the car more then for example H&R sport.

I will measure how much they lowered exactly after about another 500kms.

Also they give you a slight rake stance which I love.
