Just put liquid nitrogen all over your stock springs.. It will probably have the same affect as 300 dollar coilovers.

Seriously though, if you are looking for a refresh and an "adjustable" drop, get some coils. Like the ones that were suggested. Cup kits are good, but non adjustable if you are wanting to change it later on. I remember reading that if you have coil overs, you will never have to worry about ride height again as you can adjust them. I dont think the ride comfort will get better than stock or too much worse, but it will be firm for sure. I rather have firm and stiff than bouncy!

Quick question, what is your budget anyways?

Posted by E46Mango, here.

Do you really want this to happen while going down the highway at 60+ MPH???
These were DDMs' coilover kit and not Raceland's. And no, the driver did not die but he was severely traumatized by the incident. Not defending RL's just putting the info out there.

Mona Bee!
