Default Swift Springs

Hey everyone, I've read the Swift Swing Review thread enough times to have practically decided on getting them over all the other lowering springs, for those about to say to get coilover's, not within reason $$ wise, thanks though.

My question goes out to hopefully at least a few people in our area. I measured underneath my car before, and have just about 4-4.25 inches of clearance at the lowest point between ground and by Berk exhaust. I'm sure there is no one with the same exhaust AND the swift springs installed.

But I was curious for those of you that might have the Swift's installed, hows your clearance and scrapping?

Thanks.

Subscribing, those springs are on my wish list after reading the reviews.

Yeah, I'm actually trying to order theses as well.
From reading and researching, we need a rear camber kit for to have proper fitment.
So dishing out around 590?

I havent checked the threads in a few days but I only read of 1 case where the rear camber kit was necessary. Seemed like most people were able to correct enough from an alignment to avoid it. Ill do some more reading though.

yeah, most reviews in the thread made it sound like the camber kit wasnt necessary, but there were a few that said it did. I figure be on the safe side, and order the the rear arms and toe bolts

Better being safe than sorry.
I think my Z's going to look silly because of my 245/275 combo if I just drop.
I think I'll drop when I have money for my 275/305 combo.

I have my EVO-R lip in hand, just need to get it painted and installed. I think when I do that Ill probably remove the front chin spoiler, especially since Im considering the springs in the near future as well.

i know you said 4 days only, but does taking this off cause any structural change to the car?
