I like the way my car sits right now. I bought function forms and it's a world of a difference compare to my old skunk2 lowering coilovers and Monroe shocks. And I have a camber kit to make the 16x8 wheels fit just right on my car. But I have it a little tooo low and like before, I scrap the front bottom end, muffler tip and I still rub my front fenders when I go up driveways when the wheels are turned. Ever since I bought the FnF's I thought to myself "shit man, with the money I spent on these things, I could have bought Air Ride Cylinders with the kits!". And I look at my car now and think 'I can only imagine how it will look if I have it DUMPED!!'


LOL I talk to myself a lot. Most of the time I don't listen.

I remember.

I've been looking at the same issue. I want to get 19's with a nice offset for my altima coupe, but to get the stance i really want, i would need bags or coilovers. i'm pretty much done with idea of dumping the car on coils and scraping everything (i had enough of that with the prelude). And I'm not really trying to take up all my trunk space with tanks either, so i guess i'll stick with my springs due to their practicality and sacrafice on the stance.

I say if you don't mind the equipment and you REALLY want the stance, then bag it.

For you it won't take up tooo much space if you're not going to play with it. A 5 gallon tank will do. Or a 8 gallon. I forgot what's even available today lol.
That's my thing too is trunk space. I tend to pick up lumber from the Home Centers in my car sometimes. With the Tanks n stuff, I won't be able to go with my car no more...

The advantage I have is I still have a bunch of fittings, hose, wires, connectors and 1 Air Cylinder. I think its for the front. Had it in case of an emergency. I dunno. Wife doesn't like the idea. I just hate scraping almost everywhere I go. And I ain't going back to stock

"Really baby?!? I thought we talked about this. You said you were done modifying your car. You promised!"
