    My car is used everyday and will cover upto 500 miles per week, I tow with and its running 19's.

    My problem is that i am more than happy with the ride height on the rear but not on the front, its just to high.

    I dont want to kill the ride quality and dont really want to bring the back down much

    Any ideas what i can do, please help

    I lowered my car with H&R lowering springs and Koni adjustable shocks, it lowered the rear by 36mm and the front by 25mm, the car looked level. Ride was sweet with practically little or no body roll. I had 18's on mine, no rubbing but you did have to be careful going over speed ramps and parking beside high curbs. I fitted the springs only first but I would not reccomend this as the ride was to bouncy.
    Good Luck.

    Mine was the standard non-sport model, you of my friends changed his springs only on his sport suspension and he to after about a month changed the shocks as well because the ride became uncomfortable. Maybe you should look at coilovers, these would allow you to set up your suspenaion at different heights.

    No its just the sport model.

    I am not sure about putting the coilovers on as they are going to be to hard.
