    We had one of our good customers pick up a Supra a few weeks ago. He came in to get HKS springs + future classic 15mm spacers installed. Figured I would post up some pics!!

    Correct 0 rubbing, perfectly flush :)

    Could bump to an 18mm but that would require raising the car to avoid rubbing the inner fender lining

    I like this ride height/look a lot, but do not like to use spacers. Is it possible to achieve this by getting a new set of wheels that have the stock specifications and just changing to offset by 15? New to this and not entirely sure it works that way. What would you recommend for wheel specs to achieve this without spacers. I already have the HKS springs on order.

    Looks nice!

    All these lowered Supras and if I lost even half an inch on mine I wouldn’t be able to leave my driveway.

    How much was this lowered by? Was this the exact preset out of the box or did you adjust it lower

    Out of the box the drop is 25mm in the front (0.98 inches) and 20 mm (0.78 inches in rear). I dropped mine 1.125 inches (1 1/8 inch) front and back. I'm on stock wheels/tires with a 12mm front and 15mm rear space from future classic. The eibach springs lower the front 1.7 inches in front and 1.2 inches in the rear. So I figures the drop I chose would be safe. I have had no issues with rubbing or bottoming out. With that drop and now that it is settled I can barely get my 3.5 inch low profile jack under the vehicle to the jack spots, so anymore of a drop and I would have a hard time getting it under to lift it to do work/remove tires without driving up onto some 2x10 pieces of wood to lift it a bit to get the jack under. Hope this helps.

    Thank you for adding the helpful information :)

    This car is lowered all the way down in the front and about 3/4 down in the rear, roughly 5-6 turns left before maximum low.

    Net drop is 45mm up front (1.75 in) | 33mm in the rear (1.3in)
