    Very nice! Can't wait to hear ride and roadhandling impressions. Thinking about doing adjustable coilovers at some point. Raise 1/2" in winter and drop 1/2" in summer.

    website quotes just under $1400.. but also says its out of stock. I need to call and find out, cuz I'm looking to snap up those springs/dampers here shortly.

    Any pics of the car with the new ride height?

    I see it RaceComp Engineering Online Store & my understanding is that the RCE springs have to be bought separately?

    Stance on the new suspension.

    Keep in mind...how low my car was with this modification was a distant worry. The was a performance first mod that is paying huge dividends already. Ideally, I actually didn't want the car to come down much at all as I use it for mountain biking and a slammed car would cause issues in that area. According to RCE, the car comes down 15mm with this setup from stock. I am assuming the springs need to settle a little bit so this is the highest it will be. I can also adjust the rear down some more if I want to as it is in the middle height position.

    Yeah the "cup kit" is the full combo.. springs/dampers. That really didn't drop the car much at all.. looks great!

    More importantly.. how does it handle now?

    Insanely good so far. Best mod yet. I am incredibly happy with the setup.

    Did the alignment last night.

    -2.5 Front
    -1.5 Rear
    0 toe

    It just rails.

    They are actually the Bayson R carbon fiber ones coated in black Plasti Dip so if I want to do a carbon lip in the future I can just peel it off.

    How did you get so much negative camber?I thought the stock setup didn't allow you to go beyond -1.5.

    And assuming this is your DD isn't that a tad bit too much?

    The stock struts only allow for 0 to -1.5. The way the GTWorx struts mount give you adjustment from -1 to -2.8.

    I do a lot of mountain runs so -2.5 should be fine. I am going to watch the wear and dial back if necessary but since the car comes stock with -1 from the factory...it should be fine.
