I just installed my lowering springs, just the springs on the stock struts... cheap way out... lol

anyone know if it will drop anymore after they get worn in? or will they pretty much stay at the height they are at? wont really bother me either way, I was just hoping for a lil more drop..

Your struts will get worn out faster than normal depending on the quality/drop of the spring. If you want really low I would just go coilovers, that way you can adjust everything you want and go as low as you want.

Coilovers however will only last about 20K~ miles from what I hear. I think you can rebuild most of them though for cheaper than initial price.

the springs might settle after driving for a little while to lower the stance a little more. but tlike he said, the struts will wear faster down the road

They will settle a bit. You probably won't notice though

I dont really want stancenation type shit, cuz i still want to turn and not destroy my fenders, thats why i went with just a 1.4 front 0.7 rear drop with lowering springs, tein s-techs... and coilovers cost an arm and a leg, so im just guna hope that the springs drop a lil more on there own..

Coilovers last a long time if you get good ones. Hell I bet I had 20 on my shitty megans. The good news is the good ones are rebuildable. Coilovers are the wrong choice if you want a minor drop and don't need adjustability IMO.

I have S-techs on my maxima and the car really didn't "settle" at all. That's a very slight drop.

its a better route to go lowering springs if you want better looks and some performance but not auto crossing every weekend. plus shocks are cheap to replace if you do the work.

I'm just glad you're lowering it. That car will look a lot better.

If you have any questions on lowering or coilovers let me know. I do alot of research, probably have the lowest car here haha.

Im more of a low and slow guy but love to carve it up and push it to the limits in the turns from time to time.
