I guess it's a dumb question,but I would like to know as well as I think the rear end is fine with the spacers without lowering.

So come on petrol heads please answer or how are us dumbos to become as clever as you are

Yeh haha rear with spacers looks perfect stock any lower and it will cheapen the looks of this car.. I don't know if I should get the aftermarket front lowering springs or just cut an an inch off of the stockers

Please don't cut your stock springs!

Best option right now might be the KW HAS system. You can fine tune the ride height to your liking and as little as 0.2inch drop in the rear IIRC.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but I am looking to do the same to mine. Did you do 12mm on the fronts and 18mm on the rears? My son actually had suggested 15mm front/12mm rear.
