Would Lowering Springs...

so a few friends told me if i got lowering springs, it would cause my ball joints and wheel bearings and tie rods and what not would wear faster is this true?

&

would i scrape the ground easy with these. cuz i drove a 200sx and it was lowered and i didn't have scrapeged problems.

i would keep my stuck struts and just buy sportlines but first i want to figure things out first.

With everything you just said....


YOU WILL BE FINE.


Foximus (Chris) is over 100,000 miles on his balt lowered on sportlines and the only thing starting to show wear is his Control arm bushings.

So if i get sportlines i shouldnt worry about wearing other stuff really fast? cuz i was going to wait till i could get fe5 shocks and struts before i got the sportlines... and even though my car has 67K on it, the control arms were replaced around 63K before i bought it bc they made noise so i wont be worrying about the bushing wear

yeah and the control arm bushings go bad on these cars anyway even if you are not lowered.
