over m-sport suspension, the fronts need to be about 1.5" lower reasonably to be flush.. rears only need like half an inch maybe

Also whats the maximum drop on the bc? 2,3,4 inches?
BC BR's, the lowest ones.. ER's are more like $1700 or so

justjap have them for around $1300 or so? they are the same as the E9x ones, so just look for the E9x non-m

i'm not sure on the max drop, 2+ inches for sure, 3?

i'll let you know when i do it

this is a good point.. even in brisbane... go lower than 10cm minimum clearance and you'd need to wind up damper stiffness.. that would SUCK

4 inches would leave <10cm clearance for sure
