Howdy. Long time stalker, infrequent poster.

Currently have 05 OBXT down for TB maintenance and radiator replacement and I'm going to do suspension while it's 'off duty'. As a little background, its a 5EAT Limited Silver on Black. Current upgrades are EVO 16G, Cobb AP, Perrin Catless UP, Perrin Turbo Inlet, 06 center console.

Wanting to lower the wagon about 1-1/2". BC coils are an option, but I'm 41 and I'm past the point in life where I kidney damage is second to handling. If anyone had comments/experience that they're a) not that bad and b) of reasonable quality then I may still consider. Looking to achieve BMW firmness as compared to stock which I'd classify as Lexus floaty.

That said, looking at perhaps LGT KYB's for struts. As I understand it, the LGT's have a mounting point that's about 1-1/2" lower. Would coupling the LGT struts with OBXT springs get me to my goal? I've searched and not seen anyone attempt this nor have I seen anything that indicates it can't be done. I'm assuming I'd need to keep OB top hats and get LGT bumps. I'll be doing f/r bushings as well.
