Has anyone lowered their R170? I would like to do mine, if so what kit did you use? How easy was it? What did you have to alter? Pictures? What was the final price..../: Thank you-Brad

I spend about 1k in parts, lowered it almost 2 inches with different pads, H&R springs and Bilstein sport shocks, ill be upgrading probably to a euro bilstein coilover kit though

I did the H&R sport springs with #2 pads all the way around. I installed custom made rear adjustable camber arms, doing the shocks this summer.

The springs have pads on the top of them, you only can see them during the removal of the spring. There are 4 sizes.. 1,2,3,4. The pics I sent in a PM are using 2 in back and 1 in front if I remember correctly. You have may have bilsteins but bilstein sports will give better performance than the OEM equivalent.

nice to see you active too livefree.. admin and all! lol

I Have been doing a little research and have pretty much decided on the H&R lowering springs and Koni sport-yellow shock/strut set. will cost just under 1k. I also want to play with the pads to get it to a level ride rather than the slight rear lift it has.
