Hi Guys

Was thinking of loweing my car. Budget is 1500 but i spoke to a guy at suspension city and he told me that i would have to spend a lot more since i mite have to replace bushes and camber kits and stuff like dat. Dat true

He also said that he was going to put pedders on da front and koni on the rear with whiteline springs

Said it would cost close to $2500

Ideas/ thoughts[quote][/quote]

Sounds pricey to me.id find some other quotes first.

for my ef it cost about 800 for lovells and kyb's
then another 150 for camber kit
included fitting and alignment
did he look to see if u actually needed bushes? or was he just making s**t up.

if u look around you should be able to come under you 1500 budget

Well I went to Fulcrum, got bilsteins, king springs, camber kit and some bushes replaced and it cost $1900. The car is as low as they could get it to go, and looks awesome. Bilsteins are like the top brand of shocks too. So yeah get another quote.

Your price is a bit on the $$$ side.
