    Hey everyone! I'm about to lower my 2015 Optima with 18x8 Enkei's and ATM I'm sorta torn between coils or springs. Right now funds are a factor and that's why I'm leaning more towards springs.

    Hey guys I have a HUGEEEEEE dilemma (being sarcastic of course) Do you guys think this is a good drop or lower it more? I'm in Megans Strret Coilovers, and I think out of the box is 1.5 all around but I feel like I can lower it a tad more. :) AHH THE DILEMMA!! If I do drop it more do I need to...

    Hey guys- I just installed the K5OS BPV Sound Plate this weekend to get that "woosshhhh" sound everyone wants with a turbo. I know this piece doesn't add anything performance-wise and is purely for auditory purposes, but can anyone tell me what the difference is between this and an 'actual,'...

    Was getting mid-30's MPG and now hitting lower 30's consistently but the temps have been rising here (Dallas, TX) since early July into the high 90's-low 100's. I notice when I get to my car after it sitting in the sun, the battery strength indicator is down 2-3 notches from where it was when I...

  17. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Hi all! I'm looking to get some springs, but I want to find the springs that will give me the lowest drop without having to get coilovers. On my last car (scion tC with Tein S-Techs), I actually cut the dead coil off my rear springs to even out the drop and it was decent. (yes, I know it's not...
