So I just recently got my saturn and I put some 18's on it (with 215/35/18 tires) right after i did that i have a pretty big gap frpm the top of the tire to the bottom of the wheel well and i want to lower it. My biggest concern is that if i drop it 2" it will be a way rough ride. Any thoughts??????

i'm sure if u put on some kyb struts with ur lowering springs it'd help the ride quality alot but probably whenever u lower ur car it'd be a way rougher ride then stock, some of the other guys would know better as i do not run kyb struts on mine i'm running the eibach pro kit and its not that bad a ride for stock struts!!

it really isn't the drop that makes it rough, it is the spring rate that the new springs are set too. IMO progress springs are the best ride for the buck. My g/f's car has sprint springs, and I like the ride of those, although I think they are a little more rough than the progress springs that I had. Ask around, everybody has different opinions of different springs.

Your car looks jacked up so high, it's not even funny, what are you talking about?

I have a '07 ion 2-Quad

I was looking at Eibach or H&R springs. But now I'll be sure to check out progress and see about the struts when I'm out next looking around


thanks
