    Now that you have coilovers, you can corner balance your car (even out the weight at each wheel to get optimum grip when cornering).

    Personal opinion - hideous. What did you do with your OEM wheels?

    Everybody's entitled to their own taste in wheels. I like old school Japanese wheels from the Early 2000's

    What kind of coilovers?

    They look like BBS LMs. An acquaintance had them on her bagged S2000. Looked fantastic. Car would look better with the TRD Front and sides when it's that low.

    1. There's hella old people on this site. Not worth the fight.
    2. How about some Watanabes on your car :)

    Megan coilovers. I was planning on buying a set of R*SR springs, but my cousin is returning his lease and hooked me up with his coilovers from the ZVW50. Wheels are WORK wheels with a staggered setup. I was originally going for this look on the picture. Dropped it 3.5 inch and I almost took out my front mudguards on a speed bump. Had to raise it back up to a inch to clear speed bumps. Maybe I might lower it more and remove the JDM mudguards... Screenshot_20190505-210218_YouTube.jpeg Screenshot_20190505-205819_YouTube.jpeg

    It's really stiff at half setting. I'll need to dial it down to max softness since it's my work car. Doesn't feel good on my back for a long drive. But it does feel and steers like a K1 go-cart now...
