    Been thinking about it a while and we need a thread with comparisons of stock and whatever spring you choose to go with. Please try to post up the exact same focal length and distance from the car. I'll start.

    I can squeeze 1 finger in the back (its sitting on the uncut bumpstops)
    Front is about 2-3 fingers.

    Yeah, cause I like my fenderwells/tires/shocks. Not too sure how much farther the shocks can go without exploding. Tires will rub if I take out 1/4" of rubber.

    Not a cobalt but :p I did have it lowered, Skunk 2 Tiburon Springs(stiffer than the Elantra springs skunk 2 offered) KYB GR-2 shocks, a rear hatch(strut)bar, adjustable progress rear swaybar, and lastly a custom alignment i loved it but I wanted more power so I got the SS/TC and sold the Elantra :( I miss her

    Well I have 225 40/ 18 tires and I don't rub. I cut off half of the bumpstop and I don't rub fender well at all. Also ur not gonna do anymore damage then what ur doing to them already. Ur car is already sitting way lower then stock so just keeping it parked is compressng the struts/shocks passed the stock height. Cutting them would just make the ride more comfortable. I thoght the same thing as u but I hated how the ride felt

    I'm running the same size tires and I know if I take off more than 1/4" im eatin fenderwell. I'm going back to stock today hopefully. I dont like how the front end rides either, the entire car feels...akward I guess. Missing my Sportlines.
