Lowering suggestions please!!??

So I have a 2010 V6 coupe auto. It's my daily driver and I have 19's on it. My end goal is to drop it and get a sportier feel but do not want to have my teeth chattering every time I drive the car. I am considering either the Honda HFP kit, Koni's with sport line springs, Megan Ez coil over kit, or Tein street advance coil over kit?? Thanks guys!

Lowering springs on stock shocks until they blow, then replace them with koni. But that's just what I would do cuz I'm cheap lol Get expensive coilovers or air ride!!

I've done oem shocks with springs and koni's... just got coil overs and needless to say I should have gotten coilovers first....i think you won't be disappointed with coil overs.

Tein or Megan's. Megan's ride better but it's all personal choice. Megan's go lower and have ride adjustment

Ezs are direct bolt on and give you ride adjustment. I can get you a little deal in Megan's if you want let me know. Send me a pm and I'll save ya some cash

Its all a preference . I got the HFP suspension free as part of the deal when I bought my car , I must say it is a huge improvement driving the car . I mean night and day

This week iam going back for the 19" hfp rims to complete the "HFP model" with 245/40/19" tires (this is the recommended size even on a 19x8 .

if your just looking for a good stance go H&R lowering springs (1.5 front and 1.3 rear drop) .
I must say I did want more of a drop but now with such a wide tire iam glad they left a 2 finger gap so the new hfp rims and tires wont tear up my fender well and clips

Coilovers will give you the best performance and looks, but depending on where and how much you drive they are also the most uncomfortable. I went from stock suspension to coilovers and changed the coilovers for Eibach lowering springs after a few months because they were just too harsh for daily driving.
