Fe1 fe3 fe5

I have the Sport,

LS,LT is FE1

Sport FE3

SS FE5.


FE5 gives a lowered stance.

The FE1 doesn't obviously but....

Does the FE3 equipment give any stance change? Would like to know for when I buy springs how much I want to drop.

Fe5 lowers an ls lt by 1/2 inch only. Fe3 is what you have on ur sport already

You will get no change in stance change with any of them, I'm talking visually

Fe5 equipment is the best you can get for lowering springs

I just wanted to confirm my thoughts already. I surely want teh drop to be noticable. So 1/2" won't cut it.

last i checked after installing springs on all three setups, the springs are all the same...so im pretty sure if u just get fe5 springs to put on there will be 0 change in anything.

aftermarket is always ur best bet. if ur looking for a very slight drop go with eibach pro kit.

Well, there goes my plans on using old SS spring to drop mine. Like Marvin the Martian says... Back to the old drawing board.

i unintentionally had SS springs for a lil while, and there was no drop at all. so yea, go aftermarket, cuz its worth it, lol.
