Default Suspension Kits??

I am looking for a 93 2004 suspension kit, I want to lower it pretty low, I was thinking of having a local shop that does custom jobs do it although i would rather purchase one from a manufacturer. If you have any help it would be appriciated. Also is it possibile to put an aftermarket blow off valve on this car? Thanks-

Welcome...

Looks like the lowest springs available are from H&R and lower the car 40mm. i know someone that has them with 19's and it looks pretty low. As far as a BOV goes, that's a tough one. Someone has installed a HKS one but the car runs rich due to our stock valves being mounted directly to the turbo and are of the recirculating type.

I'm in the same boat, I wanted to stay with the dealer kit (which includes the springs, struts and sway bars) and was a great deal for under 400. but the killer is labor, they want around 800 dollars to install it.

Who lowered 40mm? and did he replace the struts? can you post a link to those H&R's...

It is the guy with the red arc with the 19 inch chrome diablo rims. Looks sweet with the springs. i believe he is using the struts from the sport kit.

here is the link for the springs.
