I say this with the utmost frankness and honesty, having had both mildly lowered cars, and slammed cars. These springs have no drawbacks compared to stock. You can take speed bumps, dips, and driveways the same speed or faster because there is so much less dive, and the static height drop is 0.75in. Put two people in the car, and the car rides HIGHER with RCE's compared to stock with two people in the car.

Capiche?

The tire size is fine. I ran a 245/40/18 on 18x9's +38, no problem at all, plenty of room.
This makes me feel a LOT better. No 2" on a civic, but 1.3" on a '97 grand am, and it's sorta like "once bitten twice shy".

Thanks for your feedback.
