I dropped mine with the FRPP springs, and took out the rubber isolators for one, I couldn't get the old ones off the front springs, and two, you get more drop. The springs were supposed to drop it like an inch but I think was a little more. Made it handle awesome too.

hey 86ho how long have u been driving with them isolaters. bobby whatever u do put them on cause i coodnt get the old ones off my springs so i said that hell with it and i pout the frontspring on the isolaters. god did it annoy the **** out of me a couple of months later when those springs were sqeaking like crazy, i coodnt take it anymore and the crappy part about it was that the springs were a bitch the first time and they were a bitch the second time. i shooda juss takin the extra 30min and went back to the store and got the isolaters. only thing that sucks now is that the froint does sit about 1/2 inch or 1 ich hogher. but the springs are still new so i gotta give then time to settle.

but yah deffinetly put isolaters on all the springs cause ur not gonna wanna redo them again.

my car is REALLY low....ill get some pics soon.....but it definatly makes for a rougher ride...but you learn to avoid the bumps and potholes pretty quick. i rarely bottom out, but id say that more than anything its how you drive; and yes it handles WAY better.

if i had an LX i would lower it. mine is a GT and me personally i think it would look too low. but go for it. there's KYB kits on ebay that have 4 shocks/struts and springs for a decent price
