Default Lowering springs

Are the only lowering springs available, 1.5 front and 2.0 for the rear.
That is the only choice I see on e-bay.

Thanks!

This forum is loaded with answers to your question, so take a look around first and let me say that Ebay is not the best place to look.

Eibach, h&r, are the most common brands.

You can sometimes find them cheaper on eBay, just watch out for the junk brands

Ever think of bagging it? You could drive it more often without worrying about clearance and then lay it out for shows, etc.

There are many factors that effect the ride clearance and the springs are a small part of those factor's. Without knowing every aspects of another PT suspensions,tire and general overall condition of any given PT I would never assume it to be like mine or compare it to others with regards to what will or will not be a clearance issue!

Nope it's exactly the way I want it. The goal now is to enjoy it and preserve it
