Lowering Spring FAQ

I am a little motivated to bring you some information on lowering springs and how much of a drop several different brands and types of springs give you. I have been driving my recently purchased Eclipse Spyder GST around with a large amount of wheel gap. I CANNOT fucking stand wheel gap. We all know that wheel gap is like a vagina- the more fingers you can fit in, the worse it is. In my case with the stock springs, I can fit an entire fist in there. The wheel gap needs to go.

Luckily, we were able to removed the lowering springs from #VirginMary without a whole lot of an issue. The front struts were a little difficult as the front end of the car is obviously smashed up from the accident. The suspension was all bent, tangled, and bound up. But, we got the fronts out after removed the majority of the front suspension. The lowering springs will be going on #Charlotte asap.

So, lets just right into it. I will list each brand of lowering spring, for the 1G and 2G, list the drop measurement, and some more info along with it.
