That's the perfect drop for ur cb7, although mine is "2. A pic won't do it justice unless it has the same size rims and tires u plan on getting, b/c the wheels will raise it back up.

1.5" is barely noticeable. With quality stuff, it's not a bad drop, though.

i've been told that 1.5 is barely noticeable but my only concern is getting rid of the gap with a 205/40/17

Get 205/45/17.

1.5" will help. I had 1.8 in the front and 1.5 in the rear a while ago.

The member who goes by the name pocb7 comes to mind.

Click here for his MR thread.

"17X7 4.114.3 JDM AME CIRCLAR WHEELS"
"TOKICO SPRING+SHOCKS COMBO 1.5" DROP"

Pretty sweet look if you ask me. Perfect drop, not too high... not slammed.

I run 215/45/17's on a 2 inch drop, and I'm almost rubbing... Also cuz the offset of my wheels are +38.

A two inch drop is good; I don't think 1.5 is enough, considering how much wheel-gap CB7's have.

I'm looking into a 1.5" drop also simply because I live in downtown Seattle and we have manholes, potholes, and road construction galore so I don't feel like crawling ovr every obstacle I come to, you know??

I am on Tein S-Tech's, and stock shocks/struts. It is a noticable drop from behind the wheel or riding anywhere in the car.

The S-Tech springs allow for a 2.09" drop up front and a 1.69" drop in the rear.. It will not give you the slammed look but, you won't have to worry as much about if you are going to scrape or not..

I have had my S-Tech's for about 2.5 months now, I have only scraped one time and that was in Downtown KC during rush hour traffic on a steep incline. If I wouldn't of been in traffic I could have approached at a slight angle and avioded the scrape but, it was only underside of my muffler that barely scraped.

My setup is the Tein S-Tech Springs, Stock shocks/struts, on stock 14" steelies with hubcaps, 185/50 R14 MICHELIN X-Radial tires

A few pics:


More pics throughout my members ride thread, LINK in my signature below..

If you do decide to go with a similar setup, you can always find S-Tech's floating around Ebay. Just be sure that you visit TEIN's website and read over the notice about counterfeit springs on ebay. They are pretty easy to spot and I have not seen any Counterfeit Tein's in a while.. Later

Well here is my old setup sprint blues. 2.25" on stock struts


So raise that a bit and you got 1.8.
