lowest springs for the price?

Im looking at megan racing springs and im also looking at sprint springs.

i cant find a good site that has the lowest prices.

Im looking at these cuz they are 2.0 and 1.75 in drop in the front.
Im more worried about getting the front wheelgap gone and looking good.


What do yous think?
any sites?
Im puting these on OEM shocks.

your oems will eventually fail from changing the spring rate so just plan on replacing those eventually

ebay will probably be your cheapest for megans which is going to give you just about the biggest drop

i found a set pretty cheap. I just wanna make sure they are not fake shocks.
I seen on here people bought tein s-techs from ebay and they were fake shocks.

I emailed the seller he said they come directly from the factory.

sprints run about $200 they are the lowest drop, you could look at used...shipping will be a factor in the price also.

Yeah idk why i said shocks i meant springs.

Im looking at megan racing.
Sprint will look weird since the back is getting so low. Back doesnt need a 2.0 drop like the front.

i'd think about getting megan springs temporarily then replacing your shocks before something goes really wrong
