I forgot which one we went with. Contact @FT-86speedfactory and tell them you want the same set up.

About the drop I believe it gives it an extra 1.5 to 2 inch travel

@h4nh

Couldn't you have went with a shorter rear spring to achieve the difference in height?

Why and have less actual useable suspension? The way he has done it is 100% best way to have done it IMO. Keep all the travel and allowing the overall car to be lower.

@h4nh Thanks for making the effort to make this work. I too will be going with the Ohlins coilovers but would have liked a bit more of a drop. Now that won't be an issue. Maybe I'll get to see your car in person one day. Dallas isn't too far away.

No you cannot. The height adjustment is the bottom portion of the shock which is maxed out. With the shorter spring, it will compress the shock travel down where you hit the bump stop. It doesn't change the length of the shock itself.

Awesome. Glad this helped and if you ever come out here hopefully my car is in one piece. It's usually taken apart half the time lol

You may have addressed this, but with the thread titled as it is I don't dare check the other pages: why buy Ohlins if you want to lower your car more than the lowest spec provided by the Ohlins coilover?

It's in the paint shop. No need for name calling. Learn to read before you post. And go to page 2 to see my other cars before you make a judgement and make yourself look even more stupid.

The decals were for a car rally. My m3 has been on several magazines and for Hre wheels ads.

Do you just post to increase your number of posts or do you actually post anything helpful at all?
