Well a little background I've got an 09 CBP FA5 with HFP brake kit and an AEM short ram as the only performance mods. I'm looking for a cheapish drop (around 300 dollars max, im only in highschool so i dont have a huge budget) that won't be too low but will be noticeable and help performance. Also I wouldnt want it to roughen the ride too much if possible. Is there anything out there that meets all those requirements?

I had looked into it at one point but it seems like it doesn't really drop much at all and the ride is wayy rougher right?

The HFP suspension is not THAT much of a rougher ride. It is still a bit rough, but nothing that would deter you from using your car as a daily driver. I think it drops it enough to get the look but keeps it high enough that you aren't scraping when you turn into your grocery store.

i had pro s but didn't like the ride, plus i dont need it also, i dont autox and stuff just for DD. so i'm not going to spend over $1000 on coilover, i rather save for engine mods

Prokit is what ur asking for, without a doubt

prokit have a better ride than stock, softer over little bumps and stiffer when cornering, i couldn't be happier about their performance.
