:werd: The car will lean backwards like an airplane taking off. :chuckles: The smallest drops out there are Tein H-Tech (.9"), Eibach Pro Kit (1.2"), and TRD (1.25").

Mixing and matching springs isn't a good idea. Each set of springs has a different stiffness for front and rear, and they both work together. You may get unpredictable/dangerous handling by using springs that different. You can try Skunk2 or Ground Control adjustable springs, but they have a pretty stiff, bouncy ride on stock struts. Getting struts like KYB AGX or Koni Yellows will help control the springs, but then you have to worry about the rear struts dying faster than the fronts (a 2" drop is bad for struts).

Getting different sets of springs is the only way you'll accomplish that. The next closest springs are Hotchkis (1.4" F / 1.9" R). They make the car pretty level, so bumping the front end up another .5" will make the car look like one of those old domestics with the rear end sagging. ;)

Sturds?

Anyway - what do you use the car for?

That will help people help you.

It seems to me that you need coilovers. I proper set will be expensive but will include properly designed struts. With a coilover set, you can experiment with any ride height you like.
