    Hey guys,

    I can't afford coils! And I'm tired of driving my monster truck. I have a 2012 si and I want a decent drop, 2 inches? Its a daily driver and I'm looking for handling as well. Oh and I also live in Toronto where it can get super cold, not sure if any have been known to seize up in the cold. Ive looked at H&R and Skunk2

    Thanks!

    I went with Eibach sportline springs for those very reasons

    Thanks guys, and any thoughts on the D2 springs? I've seen a few people that are pretty happy with them

    I stayed away from them because they are cheaper springs. Which may mean they won't last. And a 2 inch drop imo is just too much for our stock struts and I didn't want to run a camber kit in the rear.

    I will eventually get either koni struts or coilovers. Just didn't want to have to worry about it for a little while.

    I was going to wait as well, but I have a popping or clunking sound to investigate. Since I will need to tear everything apart and have to get an alignment afterwards, I figured I may as well do them now.

    Where are you located? I have used Eibach Sportlines that I had on my car last year for about two weeks. I will take some pictures tomorrow if you are interested.
