It's by far the worst ride ive ever felt in my life. I absolutely hate it with the passion of a thousand suns. You can't ride that low (at least for our cars) and have a "decent" ride quality. I can't put any more emphasis on how bad it rides. So bouncing would be an understatement. Unless you're driving on a sheet of glass, its going to beat the shit out out of you, even if its just taking a trip to the grocery store. I want to see if its possible to get softer springs though even if i have to raise my car up a bit. Right now, no matter what height im at, it rides like garbage. BUT, i must say, all the attention i get and how sexy my car looks, makes me keep it this way. It also has reduced my wheel spin which is a BIG plus.

I gotta get better pics but I see most people lower their cars according to where the tires sit in the wheel well, i measured from the bottom of the rocker panel to make the car level. So the rear tucks a hell of a lot more tire than the front since the front wheel well is larger. The 225/45's rub like hell though. I really dont want to get a smaller tire though being as my larger sidewall is the only thing absorbing bumps now. I don't recommend slamming your car if you want to retain ride quality.

nooo, not if you have the right top hats. It allows you to regain your lost travel. Here's an example for the Miatas (we've been gaining back the 2" of travel that we lost for awhile!):


Moderately Slammed — RevLimiter.net

Someone should go to a reputable shop and express interest.. after all there's a lot more of you slammed guys than a few years ago....

Or just try and get a company to make shorter shock bodies for the coilovers (BC might already, but maybe not short enough).

How does that top hat replacement work? How does it effect ride quality? As far as a shorter coilover, I had hoped they made a shorter one for the regular Neon's like they do with struts but I guess not.

camaro, You should try owning a static dropped Minitruck. Mine rides like a skateboard. I have an air ride set up for it, one of these days.

It allows the coilover body to go up INTO it, therefore regaining your lost travel. I don't know how well it would work on the front of a Neon, since there isn't much clearance till you'd hit the hood. But in the rear it would work.

edit: here's another company making them: http://iscracing.net/miatasuspension.html

reason why i asked was because i thought having coilovers enables you to have a nice quality ride being that low but guess not. My car is this low and i thought it rode like shit because i messed with the preload.on bc's by the way
