well the front springs, from what ive read, are going to be A LOT stiffer than the pro springs. and the pro springs are already 25% more stiff than the stock springs... so very stiff ride. just dont give grandma a ride to the Rx to get her hemroid cream in the lowered forte lol but there are no struts added. its just a lower ride

@ blackfortekoupp - if you cut your springs, you're messing around with your warranty. i was told don't even think about it by my dealer. I have the pro kit, it seems to clean the wheel wells up nicely. the roads are &$%*@ING GARBAGE around where I live. so i'm constantly swearing in my car when i'm drivin around. i can't say i was 100% happy with the stock suspension(i know, i know - it's a sport tuned suspension, not supposed to be necessarily comfortable)...........the stock springs are a nicer ride than the pro kit, but the pro kit does give the car a better stance and the wheels are hugged more by the wells........pro kit is enough for me, but if you gotta have it ultra low, go with the other one.

They have... they are just overseas...
i saw some that were only rated to lower the car 60mm thats a little more than 2 inches. thats not enough! def not worth the 1300 dollar asking price.

do you know of any that will actually lower this car?

I am not sure. Then again after some time... the springs will settle down.. so it'll be over 2 inches...

Trying to see if my dad can find 'em...

the springs used on coilovers are not going to settle much if any at all really.

i wonder if any cars have the same spec suspension as us.

a friend of mine ran accord coilovers on his acura TL.

I thought I remembered seeing you post that your having to give the car up... If that's the case then don't buy either BK. If that's not the case and I'm thinking of someone else, well, then nvm.
