I wanna lower my ng900 but I'm afraid the rear sagging. Ill be doing this on stock struts but that's because I just put new shocks all around last year. I wanna know what's the best brand to go with that dosnt make the rear sag, or is there any counter way to make the rear not sag down.

I put Eibach Pro Sport springs and Bilstein sport struts on my Viggen a couple years back and have been very happy. Not only did the package lower it another inch or so but improved handling and "stick-to-the-roadworthiness." No bottoming problems at all.

Keep in mind, the Viggen suspension was already lower than stock 9.3 or NG900, so you should do well with the Eibachs, IMO. Also, FWIW, I'm running 215/45X17 Yokohama AVID W4S UHP A/S sneaks on BBS RK wheels...all very complimentary.

I had the vogtlands, and they are known to have a very low amount of give in the rear. I would recommend a different manufacturer.

I have Adrenaline's old Vogtlands on my 1996 SETC and I found the rear to be a little high. The front was perfect but I actually made an "aftermarket" modification to the rears to bring it down another inch. Now I'm happy with both ends. Even with cheap KYBs the car handles so much nicer than it did stock. I know it's a hack but my budget these days is a hack too. :0)

My car is a vert though so not sure how that plays in.

D-

PS, some pics of my car are in the thread from a few days ago labeled "Dropped 96 SETC pics".

BTW, where are you in Florida?
