That looks awesome!! Still planning to lower my car to about that height aswell, just haven't been able to find any coil springs that go low enough (without having to cut or compress them) so will probably end up going for coilovers.

Ya all i can get new is 45mm springs so will probably go for coilovers as having it that low could get annoying after a bit so be handy to lower or raise it as you want

Yeah coilovers would be the most sensible option. If you went lower than 45mm with coil springs you'd need to get your shocks shortened anyway, which is further expense. Plus going that low on coil springs would be pretty uncomfortable I'd imagine, so having an adjustable dampening setting on the coilovers would come in really handy as you'd be able to soften up the ride quality a lot. I'm leaning towards going for a set of BC Gold coilovers myself.

i agree with Scott. get coilovers! they will do you some justice. believe me. i have BC's on and they feel fantastic to me.

Got a spin in a corolla last week with 40mm springs and I gave up on the idea of buying coilovers or 60mm springs as i thought the dash was going fall out the car with rattling and banging so i finally decided today id fit the lowering springs that i bought a year ago.Went for an eibach pro kit as was told there very good.There expensive for just springs and are only a 30mm drop but cant get over how the car drives with them,no banging and feel nearly as comfortable as the standard ones so i'll be sticking with them Smile,not a massive sitting on the ground drop but it looks a lot better than it did with standard springs.
Here a few pics off the phone,i'll get better ones over the weekend.

Ride height looks good. Should get a bit bigger of a rim down eventually to fill out the arch.

Changed the wheels again,had these on it few years ago but suit it more now thats its lowered.i'll leave them on for the winter anyway.
Gave it a good goin over underneath with a power hose and cleaned the inner arches and inside splash guards and sideskirts.Also gave it few coats of polish and collinate wax before the winter weather starts.
