Something to note with lowering springs is that if you go too low with them on stock struts, you will blow out your valves fairly quickly. In general you shouldn't drop more than 1" - 1.5" on OEM struts. For serious stance and drop like 3", you'd need aftermarket struts like Tokico Blues or coilovers.

And if you are thinking of plasti dipping your car, a lot of people have tried that and it did not turn out well in the long run, so I'd advise against that.

I was only gonna drop 1.5-2 inch for now,but I may be getting new struts and I heard good about plasti, but I guess I'll see
