1st. NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
2nd. The only time you will need to REALLY worry about bottoming out is on coils, not drop springs.

I agree do not get these springs here nothing but bad reviews on them for our cars. I would recommend looking at different springs.

YYZ is my top recomendation and they were the perfect spring for my application. Otherwise I loved my CCS's, not a super agressive drop and the handling was great.

CCS is a great go bewteen. You get about 1-1.5" drop and the handling is great. Upgrade your struts and shocks to FE5 and you get another .5"

I have FE5 shocks and struts all around with B&G lowering springs. Gives a great drop but keep in mind if your just doing springs your FE1 shocks and struts will probably blow very quickly.
