Get eibach racing springs or Megan racing springs they have a 1.5-1.7 drop rate on them.

i have an extra set of eibach sportlines. they slam the car low, and make car corner quite well, but are a stiff ride.
It's not the fall that hurts, it's the sudden stop at the bottom!

I really like my drop zones. Nice ride, not bouncy or stiff on new kyb gr2s and they are cheap. Almost got a full 2 inch drop after they settled. I have had them 2 years and been pretty satisfied with them. I autocross quite a bit and there was a noticeable difference in cornering but a lot of that could have been the new struts that went on with them.

Doesn't ride like a haywagon does it?

Nope. I would give them 5 out of 5 stars, but the only thing I have had to compare them to are sportlines and I hated them.
