I heard with the highest setting on the clubsports in the rear has 0.8' drop and not the 0.2' that kw advertises. So if your rear goes down that much, might as do the same in the front otherwise the car will look stupid.

If the roads are that bad, then why do upgraded suspension? Better suspension normally comes with a lower stance so if you don't want the car lower, then maybe sticking with the stock setup is better if height is an issue?

well my car spends most of its life on track/ drifting/ spirited driving events. just getting out of my house and getting there is the only problem.

well actually its just my house thats a problem for me. the ramp going up is quite steep as we have to build it that way because it tends to flood here.

honestly im just scared for my lip if i drop the car lower.. i added the ind sport lip evo on the car.
