TB performance Products all the way for sure.
I had a dropped car before and while they look great, it was a PIA.

True. Considered Tein Flex Z coils but I had a lowered/ heavily modified Neon and I dont think I'll go that route again in the future if there are chassis reinforcements available. Totally happy with my choice and I think a lot more reliable way to achieve improved handling. Owner of TB is really cool too.

I have my 2009 Corolla S Turbo lowered on BC coilovers and I haven't had issues. It's not slammed low but it's lower than my iM will be. I'm still going to lower my iM but it will be a mild drop on Tanabe springs, a 0.7" front and 1.0" rear drop. Here is the underside of my Corolla Turbo.
