    Afe lowering springs

    I drive a truck,so the ride to me on the RS,doesnt bother me...but the way the backend sits does. Was doing a search on lowering springs and came across the afe,1.1" drop in rear, .6" in front. I wasnt able to find any reviews on it,so my question is,has anyone in the community went this route,and how did you like the ride,and how did car look after fitment.

    The RS suspension tuning and stability systems are designed around a front rake. Removing the rake could alter the handling capabilities when approaching the cornering limits. Removing it will have no noticeable effect ride....only addresses appearance, IMO.

    I just ordered the Mountune springs and only installed the rear springs. No noticeable difference in ride quality or braking but appearance wise looks a ton better IMO. Also I have an 18' so results your may have different if the car is a 16 or 17 before the shock update.

    Could we get a photo of this? I've heard the front springs are a PITA to install anyway and I'm not unhappy with the front height so was considering doing the same for the look.
