taking the springs out is cheaper and easier and does the same thing or you can just heat up the stock springs with a torch and let it sag until you get the drop you think is k00

and notch the frame so your axles don't rub. and don't complain about a really harsh ride cause you'll have next to nothing in terms of bump travel.

Any lower than s-techs and you may as well not have any springs at all. Just use the bumpstops to support the weight of the car, it'll be pretty much undriveable anyway.

You obviously don't care about suspension geometry, handling, or ride quality, so just get s-techs or Cobb springs.

ok...simple like

sell the subaru and buy a hunduha....they love being slammed

otherwise....if YOU think it looks k00....it is too low and you will have all sorts of issues and hate the car because it looks S000000000000 k0000000000 when its parked....but you wont want to even try to drive it because it sucks S00000000000 bad as soon as it starts moving

that is the straight ****....like it or not

use the lowest profile tire made and then you can lower the car and not worry about being grouped into the hella flush crowd... Or you could just take the springs out and stack washers until you get the desired height.
