Yep. Already done that. These are with the Swift GK5 Lowering Springs. I know the rear looks a bit high-ish still...but it does help by not bottoming out when u are carrying a bus load of people.

Looks good to me! Gold and white is very classy in that setup of wheel.

Are the Swifts the least drop amount for lowering springs?
And how is the ride quality? They make the car less bouncy and firm?

Thanks. The Swift Springs claim a drop of 1 inch and 0.9 inch for front and rear respectively. Not sure if they offer the least amount of lowering (highest ride height after lowering) but I know the eibach pro kit lowers by a similar amount. Ride quality wise, the car is appreciably firmer than stock and less floaty. The front rates seem good while the rear is a tad on the stiff side when unladen. Dampers appear to be near their valving limits when on these springs but not to the point of underdamped yet. Time will tell if the damper will fail prematurely.

On closer look i see drop is not bad. I run swift's on my gE and bit higher in rear. Wish the bit higher was in front as I rub sometimes.

The front is what I would set it to if I had coilovers. On my old GD with coilovers that's just about as big a fender to wheel gap I had at the front.

Ok Back to basics . I didn't enjoy driving on 17s. After i tried my 15" again, the car felt a lot more zippy around town.

So, i got a set of sports tyres last week. Buy 3 for 4 sale










Tyres are 195/55r15 bridgestone re003 semi slick. Soft compound. Ride feels really really nice now. I just enjoy going to the shops or anywhere for no reasons these days
