yeah i hear that man im about to buy some coilovers myself.... but anyway there are a few companies that make lowering springs for the hatch. i know a couple of people that run the eibach sportlines lowering springs and they look nice. you might also want to check tien and progress....

:welcome: it's a 03 so you might want to foot the bill and get a quality coilover setup...

Full coil system is the best. How many miles on your Ep now? If you get springs you may need to change your struts soon. Eibach has a good spring and maybe get yourself some Tokico Hp blue struts

I just purchased and 03 in Feb and that what I did so far. Coilover is the best way to go but I just got some H&R by itself and lowered it, now going for some Tokico struts. Just remember once you buy one thing their is always something else you need.

I would say Eibach I have always had good luck with them

Welcome newbie!

There were some tein's on ebay for 165 shipped, but im trying to stay away from that place cause theres too many junk parts on there. Its got 60,000 miles so im not too worried about my struts. Plus besides the drop, i think my second mod is to pay it off. thanks for all the info. :)

Welcome. Search and you will find. Check the classifieds too.

Do it right the first time as what the other guys said.

welcome to ephatch man!! imo you should instead save up and buy coilovers instead. that way you can adjust height and the ride quality is alot better.

wecome to the site yo, yeah if ur going to do suspension with 60k on the clock u should go ahead and atleast replace the struts too.
