So I am inexperienced, and a slow learner on suspension.

So, now I am looking for front springs with a 1 1/2 inch drop!

I bought a set of lowering spring (I believe from Handy) a year or more ago.
The result has been a lot of frustration of fender rub on bumpy roads, and my front end break of the PTeazer Smoothie Bumper "snow Plowing" this winter.
HECK! I even scrape the front bumper going out of my driveway.

After the recent bumper repair, I put the OEM springs back on the front end.
AND DAMN, it looks ugly now!
**I am pretty sure that the red springs I bought were super slammers (although not so much on the rear end. Brand unknown).
The difference in the front wheel wells is about 3 over bumps I would scrape the fender, especially if turning.

Pretty much all I see on the Web is sets of 4 springs.
But, I desire to just get the front 2.

What it looked like lowered.
It was a cool looking stance!

What it looks like on OEM springs.

I'm using Tein lowering springs. Here's some info on them:

The best prices should be around $160-$180 for a set of four(4). Front drop is around 1.5" and rear is around 2".
Check here:

Also, struts and shocks should be changed as I understand it. I'm doing this very soon to my Limited. My mechanic even advised me to buy new strut mounts too. As I learn more, I'll post here if possible.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but they make a good excuse.
