3.5" drop on car with 4.9" stock ground clearance and 2.5" bump travel? Have you considered hard welded suspension? You should also take a look into aftermarket sideskirts, bumpers, diffusors and splitters to make it completely ground level. When you need to move car, just pump in tires 3 times more pressure.

Don't ruin your car... it's one of the best handling sports cars ever made, and you're on the right track to utterly destroy the only good thing about it. Try again.

I'd say you definitely want to get adjustable endlinks.

On another note, at -3.5" your CV axles are a ticking timebomb.

DAEMANO: car lowered that much is undrivable on average public roads. No driving = no wear on CV axles

3.5" lowered AND adding more camber. Those outer CV joints are going to give up REALLY quick.

But, but, it will look cool in eyes of people that have no clue about cars! Ability to post pics of bastardized car on social media should be worth any sacrifice/illeffect.
Only slight inconvenience would be not being able to drive to car washing on your own, only on trailer, but it's government to blame for not having completely flat roads.

You'll definitely need adjustable endlinks.

Guys, let people do what they want. It's not affecting your car, wallet, or build. Just answer his question and move on. At least he didn't post an Instagram link or YouTube videos

Yes, we're all idiots for thinking a car which has better chassis balance than nearly anything else on the market under $100k is a good sports car. Please, continue making a mockery of the car scene with your disastrously stupid "modifications". I'm sure it'll make all the other fuccbois flock to you, so you can do shared Instagram photo shoots in between giving each other handjobs.

I hope your stupidity continues and you decide to try a few skids to impress the other fuccbois and you end up wrecking the car and it burns to the ground. At least then the poor thing will be out of its misery. Please go be a stancetard somewhere else, there's no place among civilized society for your kind.

jesus you forum guys sure are toxic aren't you pretty sure youíre just jealous we get more attention on the streets as oppose to a car that looks like its straight out the dealership. respect the car scene man, some people want to look different from others and some want to pop their hood simply to flex their +5hp mishimoto cold air intake. now as much as i have in mind, iím not going to continue on and make a little kid out of myself just as you did yourself. now if you don't mind iím going to go lay frame on the streets and pipe your girl under the sheets <3

Swearing from all the cars queued up behind some lowered car waiting for opposite traffic to clear to be able to do his diagonal driving thing over speedbumps. Extra attention from cops. Laughing from those that actually have clue car performance & handling. Oh, and prizing attention from clueless kids, with which for these reasons i wouldn't want to be associated with.
No. I'm not jealous of all that. It may surprise you, but i really am not. And as many here, i hate to see people paying money to make car i like to be worse/unusable. No clue for what to respect "scene" that groups such .. "special" people.
You know, suicide attempts also bring more attention to and are better covered in mass media then life of normal people. I don't want because of that to commit suicide, nor to have extra respect/attention to those, that do.
