Do they exist? Haha. I just searched the forum up and down and can not find anything. The lowest i can find are the INTRAX springs that do a 1.8" drop.

Attached is an example of what i am going for(or close to it)

Thanks
Joe

I know that this thread is about aesthetic mods for the accent, but is there any performance benefit for lowering the SE model? (The base models aside). The SE holds to the ground pretty well and can be slid or spun without any real tipping going on. Sure it's a lower center of gravity, but how much better does the car react to lowering?

kfx performance has a coilover kit but i dont think anyone has shelled out the money for it yet.

where are you in va?
****, those coilovers run 1400 bucks. Yikes. Im in Fairfax VA which is near DC. Looks like we have the same car.. mine is maroon as well.

Thanks for all the replies. Looks like its gonna be intrax for now till i can find ssomething better. Anyone have pics of their accent lowered on them?

IIRC, SMA and other similar coilovers only drop 60mm (2.36") Hardly dumped. These coilovers aren't meant to drop the car to the ground either.

the max i could lower the car was 3 on the front and 3.5 on the back. Of course the ride was like S*** but it looked good..and that was it, it only looked good. I raised the front .6 and the back 1.1

Im interested in seeing a lowered accent myself on reliable springs. Alittle less wheel gap would be nice but I'd like to see it first. BTW, I'm also from SoMd so a NoVa meetup would be awesome this summer.

This is how i looked before.



I was able to lower it a little bit more in the front but then i raised it up for the autocross.
