    im looking at some dropzone suspension options, i saw thet springs and thatsabotu a 2 inch drop or so, then i saw the dz coilovers that will allow me the choice of how low i wanna go.
    What is the better choice??
    is there a difference in stiffness between the 2?

    Ground Control Coilovers for you sound good, they work well and they are cheap you can't go wrong.

    Skunk2 springs ride pretty good, but they don't lower it very much.

    'course, they've only been on there a month or so, so they might settle...

    Wanna buy 'em? :D

    Dropzone makes probably the worst suspention products known to man. I had them on my car for about a week, and replaced them with stock. Go with the ground control.

    my cousin has dropzones. they dont do much for handling; theyre mainly for making the car look good. also after about 3 months maybe, the passenger side is already sagging(he weighs like 250lbs so you'd expect the driver side to sag :shrug: )

    I couldn't agree more, dropzone coilovers are crap! If you have to go with coilovers go with skunk. However the best option is to get some springs, and replace your struts/shocks with some adjustable koni's.

    that's because of:
    1. Cheap material
    2. poor design
    3. Low spring rate (psi)



    wanna try my coils on your car? j.k.
    these are some coils that I manufacture. You can easily put 10 hondas on top of your car and the coils will barely go down a bit... Can you say heavy duty!!! LOL

    Just go with a badass set of Brand X's.. :)

    I sell the dickens out them around here for people looking for that cheap drop.. But what is weird is put them up next to a set of Ground Controls and its hard to tell the difference.. :)

    But hey what can ya expect for a set of Coilovers that ya sell for 120.00...
