<------- *sings the Search Song* :whistle:

there are two springs that I can think of ST and Ebiatch (sp :wink: :lol_hitt: )

SUSPENSION TECH. (ST) are suppose to lower it 1.3"
and the EIBACH lowers it 1" (which doenst look lowered when put on)
there are a couple more but dont remember there names.

Many of our cars are lowered, but using aftermarket springs you will only get a 1.5" max drop with suspension techniques, around 1" for Eibachs.

So you will notice a dramatic drop from a picture, but that 1" sure makes a difference when you see your car every day. That 1" drop made me think that the stock height is that of a SUV.

I just finished lowering my car on the weekend (Kings springs) and damn, it's definitely low now! The wheels are well up into the guards and it looks very tough. I'll try to get pics during the week. :)

Norbie,

How much camber change did you get, and do the tires rub anywhere?

Plenty of camber change - too much in fact. :( I'm in the process of investigating adjustable rear camber, and I'll report the results here once it's sorted. Yes it is possible with some screwing around, it's just a question of how much! :)

I have noticed one of the rear tyres rubs on something occasionally, but it doesn't happen often - mostly when I hit a bump mid-corner causing the suspension to compress a lot.

One of the reasons I like the looks of the Mk2 is the stock Wheel/Ride Height/Rake relationships-I like the stock wheels and ride height-(Putting flame suit on :roll:) I really havent seen a set of aftermarket wheels I like better than Polished OEs-Or a lowered Supra that looked right to me-If I drove one and it was much better handling I might change my mind-Mike
