Before:



After:





The springs are H&R sports and after everything was said and done it's around 2" in the front and 1.5" in the rear. The alignment tech measured it for me, but he has the exact figures at work still so I'll get those and post them up. Slowly she's coming along!

The springs make it look real nice. I must say, first time I've seen a tC in white and I like!

Thanks everyone! It was weird getting into a lowered car again! I went to get in and sit down and I pretty much fell into the seat! What a difference 2 inches makes! I ended up getting the springs for around $230, installed and everything. My BF works at Les Schwab and is on the loan with me so we can get everything at cost, with no labor or install fees.

I love the lowered car in the pics. I must say as well that I have yet to see a Super White tC but I really like what I see in your pictures. Two thumbs up on what many see as a somewhat bland color...it depends on the car and it looks great!

How's the ride? I remember when I lowered my last car, ride quality went in the toilet.

I was afraid of the same thing. I have a neon with an Eibach Sportline kit and the car handles like nothing else, but the ride is very harsh.

I had a mini road trip this weekend so I got to do a lot of driving on the new springs. The ride is a tiny bit rougher than stock, but that's to be expected. There's a lot less body roll, which is so nice for taking those corners a little faster than recommended. The car doesn't jump up and down over bumps, yet isn't stiff and harsh either. I also have the body kit on the car and haven't had any issues with scraping either. And believe me, I was all over the place this weekend! All in all I am very happy with these springs.
