Poll: Do you want your car lower, or keep it the same?

I just to gauge people's opinion on this.

There are a few, namely Kokujin/Boxlife that can't get lower and still drive!

I was playing COD and waited until the game ended.

I'd like some insight on the decisions. What's holding you back?

Financial?
Speed bumps/ driveways?
Worried about installing?

I like how mine sits. Fitment > low

Truth. I'd rather be moderately low, and have sick fitment, than be slammed and it to be off too tuck (dont get me wrong, some tuck is okay). That is just my style though too. On air though, I just park is on the tires. I dont see how I could get lower actually.

Just wait....

Re: Poll: Do you want your car lower, or keep it the same?

Moderately lower on NF210s, & totally satisfied. I won't go lower if it forces me to slow for speed bumps, driveway dips, and street gutters. Plus, my wife doesn't want to be seen in a car that "looks like it's owned by a 25 year old."

Low is the current fad. It remains to be seen if it will age more gracefully than the early 70s NASCAR racing wings, late 50's tail fins, and similar fads.

I would like to be a little lower in the front. Only thing holding me up is money for coils

Re: Poll: Do you want your car lower, or keep it the same?

Money isn't the main problem with me, except 1000 to 2000 bucks for coils or bags you have to admit is an investment. I have the DF210s and put 15 mm spacers in the back and it looks pretty good. I wouldn't have minded if they would have been little lower in the rear cause when there's a little weight back there it's perfect.... For me. Plus I'm an old dood and unless it was for shows or competition there has got to be more problems for an everyday driver that would arise get it arise.

I had DFs for 3 years. I beat the crap out of them, they handle nice. I didn't like the look of the drop though, I always craved more.

On 18's, you'd have to tuck major wheel like crxgames or Randode.
