Also, over time your OEM dampers/struts will wear out because your modified Springs will be making them work twice as hard. I've heard up to 30k miles from when you install the springs. If you track the car, it would be sooner.

If you haven't, you should also do a search on Springs on this forum to read about Pros/Cons before you do it. There are a lot of good Stickies in the Suspension section.

This depends on how low the springs lower the car. You do something mild like a Eibach Prokit which doesn't even lower the car 1", even less on a ZCP car this won't be an issue. You lower the car more than an inch you now are going to have this issue.
