I just got my H&R and bilstein sport combined with 19 CL" about a month ago (more)

But the ride quality suffer a lot altough the handling is great! and the front wheel rub a little. So I was thinking about changing everything to stock but use the thinnest spring pad. How low will I get by changing the spring pad only? I am currently using 3pts spring pad all around. Other option:<br> <br> 1.$ Roll fender <br> 2.$$ Change the front spring pad to 4 but maintain H&R and bilstein<br> 3.$$4 Bring back everything to stock and use thinnest pad<br> <br> I will post picture soon<br> THX for your help guys..

Tea...where do you live? If you can drive down to San Diego..i'll re-install for you FREE..........

<br> Tea...I like option #2 the best because you said that it only rub a little. I belive by going to spring pad #4 will solve the problem and give you a little bit better ride quality. Or go with #4 spring pad and change your tires to a smaller size (the width). Example: 235-40-19 change to 225-40-19. This combo will definately solve your problem.<br> The thickness spring pads is about 23mm and the thinness spring pads is about 8mm so you can figure it out in inches of drop if you decide to go with stock spring. If you go with stock spring, i recommand you go with Bilstein shock because it give you alitle bit firmer in ride quality then stock.<br> Option #1 will also work.... IF you don't mind the bad ride quality.

Thx Linh I lived In SF Bay area. (more)

I forgot to mention that I have 2 degree of negative camber in front and 1.5 degree in the back. I found no place in my area that can fix this nor any camber kit available.Will changing spring to stock solve this problem?

Tea....changing spring back to stock without changing the pads back to stock WILL not ............

<br> solve your alignment problem. Here is the deal. Here is what you should do. If you are going to change the spring back to stock but still want the car a little bit lower. You should go ahead and replace the spring pad to the lowest pad all around. If the lowest pads is still not low enough. Do what i did, by shaving of the lowest pad bottom, this will give you addition one extra pad size lower then the factory lowest pad they offer. By doing this way you will drop your's car to more then 23mm (i don't know how many inches is that). Now, you still have an alignment problem. NO PROBLEM!!!! Take it to the dealer and have them do an alignment with an alignment 'screw'. This will solve your's alignment problem. Now you have a car ride that 'feel' like factory and the look that lower then factory. <br> <br> * If your car had more the 1.5 degree negative camber, the alignment 'screw' WILL NOT SOLVE YOUR ALIGNMENT PROBLEM.
