Hey all, im contemplating going with Htechs on my stock shocks. Currently, i find my hotchkis setup too low for my roads around where i live. I find i rub the front tire gaurd rubber pieces whenever going up a slight inline driveway, or my exhaust. It pains me so much when this happens.

Do people with Htech's find they scrape the bottom of their cars at all? I want to lower the car very slightly so that it loses some wheel well gap, but no sacrifice driveability. Also, do owners find that the Htechs drop a lot more than the stated .7F/1R. Any opinions would be appreciated.

i believe they do drop more than that when they settle. that's why i sold mine and went with L-Tuned springs. go with those!

I don't mind if they drop more when settling, as long as they're good for every day usage. I mean, we get rough winters, bad roads, and i have to deal with inclined driveways all the time.

As long as people don't scrape with them (in cities other than the beautiful roads of Cali) i wouldn't mind switching them out for those.

I don't scrape my Carbon Ti at all and I drive all day long. But I am on 19"s and I pretty much stay on the Kingwood area

Intresting...you guys are on aftermarket shocks, so it would be lower, but you don't scrape. Thats promising. I'll have to decide between these or Eibachs. The only problem is the eibachs are twice as expensive.
