Default too low?

Lookin for opinions, anyone know anything about Progress lowering springs, i found these for $169.00 Chrysler PT Cruiser (2000-2003 All) - Progress Technology Sport Springs (Front -2.2", Rear -2.3")

but I want to put 18" rims on mine so is a 2.3" drop going to put me too low?

I have Progress springs, 2" drop all the way around, with 17's, plenty of room left for a taller tire and more lowering.

Jax,
I was running those springs before swapping out for air ride suspension, with 19 inch wheels.. I never had a problem with rubbing or a harsh ride. The springs are an excellent upgrade to the PT's ride and handling.. If you are interested I only had the Progress springs on for only 300 miles and I will sell them for $125.00 if you are interested just email me.. Kevinl1058@aol.com

For a good system that you can install you are looking at about $1850-2100.00.. I believe that Air Ride Tech sell there complete system for the PT Cruiser for $2300.00... I pieced my system together using Air Ride Techs air management system, Ground Zero Cylinders up front, and 255c bags in the rear.. I also upgraded to QA1 racing shocks.. total cost roughly around $1950.00
