Best Lowering Springs???

Hey guys, im having alot of trouble choosing what springs i want to for with for my Si, its a sedan but im curious whats the best on the market, im lookin to drop just enough so the top of the tire is about 1/2 inch from the body...i heard the Skunk2 springs are pretty good. just wanted some feedback is your guys can help me out! also how does it ride with the springs you suggest?? i think all in all the drop im lookin for is about 1 1/2? thanks guys if you can even post pics for a visual that would be great!

ive had pro kits for few months. disappointed w/ drop, ordered sportlines and installing this mon. so ya sportlines seem to be all around perfect drop in every category from what ive read. low hassle, looks great, not too low etc. + rated 1.4" drop, higher then 1.5" which from what ive read is the tiping point where you start to lose performance. but then again perfect and best are subjective terms.

neuspeed race springs drops the car pretty low but they'll probably kill the shocks fast. i'm between the skunk2 and neuspeed race springs..

neuspeed is out of stock until july and skunk2.. you can find those anywhere. the questions is can the oem shocks last on the skunk2s..

Comparing Skunk2 and Neuspeed Race in terms of performance and suspension geometry together after install, Skunk2 should have the upper hand.

Well, I guess, if one just wanted to look 'good' they would purchase the Neuspeed Race.

Now owns a four door Si
sportlines look good if you have 17" wheels.. (running 215/45/r17 tires)

skunk2 springs look good if you have 18" wheels.. (running 215/40/r18 tires)
