Call around and look for somewhere that will order you some cheapz apex springzz and kyb shocks. You'll be plently low.

lol.....yup that'll do the trick.

if your looking to drop at least 3 inches then be prepared to either 1) run rediculously stiff spring rates or 2) reinforce the oil pan. otherwise you'll be destroying them (oilpans) on a regular basis. they are aluminum and damage rather easily.

if you all you want is to look slammed, get the apex/kyb stuff, run undersize tires, and put a good size front lip and sideskirts on.

dont expect the car to handle well though. at ALL.

that kits gonna run over $1000 to get to canada, $728 US plus shipping and duties!!!! It would come out to more then you think

If you don't care about handling and just want to go low and look good, just cut or heat the factory springs.

Heating lowers your car? Do you just put it in the oven, set it, and forget it?

You can fit your car in your oven?

No, heating the spring with a torch makes it lose its springy qualilty. I highly don't recommended it, but if you hit an area of the spring with a torch, it will go softer, and compress down (assuming its under load, ie on the car with weight). The real trick is getting all the springs the same height. :p
