    How far to lower my SE-i

    I'm wanting to lower my SE-i but I'm not sure how far to go. Can people post pics of theirs and say how much you lowered it from stock?

    Depends on how much your knees can handle

    I wouldn't go lower than 1.5"

    Tokico make a 1" drop
    Voightland makes a 1.2" drop
    H&R makes a 1.5" drop

    Where is a good place to buy the 1" Tokico springs?

    Re: How far to lower my SE-i

    I have a 1" drop via Eibachs, and I was thinking the other day if I had it to do over again I might go to 1.5". More than that, and you have to start compensating for the camber change. Not a big problem, but one more thing to do.
    A reason that I'm essentially happy with the 1" drop is speed bumps. We have some pretty aggressive ones here in N England, and I have to ease over them as it is. A larger drop would be a problem. Ditto for car washes.
    Read the many posts on matching the springs to the shocks. It's something that took me a couple of tries and several hundred dollars to dial in.

    yeah anything lower than 1.5 you would have to be careful on where you drive. for me the 1.5 is alright...it sucks some times when the curb is too high up and then the door scrapes....it annoys me a bit so i tend not to park in those kind of areas
