Put more stuff inside the car - people, sandbags, kitty litter, etc. That way, the suspension will be loaded - it'll be naturally lowered!

LaterZ!

u probably need coilovers w/ pillow mounts that can adjust camber then!

go to A&J Racing in RMD....they carry Zeal or Tein coilovers....personally i like Zeal more....

ask for Jackie (my bro) or Ben (the owner)....just tell him me sent u there....think they can do a better deal?

or go to Technik....i think they carry Cusco? the one Orwin is using right now....

Thumbs up

HA HA HA HA

Just cut your springs, and let your car settle for a day or two. After that, put your car on jackstands, and hammer on your control arms till you achieve positive camber. As easy as 1,2 and 3. Car will look hella dope slammed, and chicks will dig you.

Easy. Trade cars with me. My whip is lowered, carves up corners like a surgeon on prozac, and tire wear is even all throughout.

your reply was FAST joe...

hehe....

no...that doesn't really work...the driver has to be FAT and HEAVY enough to balance both sides!!!

it's not illegal to have someone sitting on the hood when you are driving....and u don't want a big DENT either....hehe....

one of my friend is 280lbs and he can lower his Integra all the way down....he was once planned to lower it but he has already physically lower it so there is no room to play around....hehe....

unless he gets super stiff coilovers to encounter such an outrageous weight....hehe...

NO FAT CHICKS

Just like the T - Shirt Says


I'll go to A+J like 5 Zigen Reccomends..... it's more cost effective... i'll have to feed fat chicks to keep the weight even...


tnx

I lowered mine with the whiteline coils at 2" or close to that. Subaru was kind enough to give us extremely adjustable camber, as per the guy at the alignment shop I've been going ot for years. He has aligned about 6 of the WRX's so far, all without any serious camber or toe probs.

You should have enough adjustment to go 2" all round, and as some of us know, the car looks great.
