Anyone have some photos or can attest to the actual drop with EDC and ZCP? Like or dislike?

The parts are worth a certain amount of points and once you hit 10 you have a "Dinan" car and they send you the Dinan badge.

I have the Dinan suspension and stage 1 vs 2 vs 3 all have the same drop. Stage 2 adds sway bar and stage 3 adds camber plates. I have EDC and don't have ZCP, but here's a pic. I love the feel of the suspension. Comfortable for daily driving, but you can really tighten it up with EDC.

I saw this the other day on a car with 19" VOLKS (CEs) and compared it to my ZCP drop in front vs. back. It's exactly one finger lower / about a 1/2 inch I guess you could say (finger gap in front is 1 and back is now none). It's as low as you go I think before it becomes inconvenient. Really nice look and convinced me that it is lower than ZCP (more than 1/8 inch).
